The Lottery, and Other Stories
- By: Shirley Jackson
- Narrated by: Cassandra Campbell, Gabrielle de Cuir, Kathe Mazur, and others
- Length: 9 hrs and 34 mins
"The Lottery," one of the most terrifying stories of the twentieth century, created a sensation when it was first published in the New Yorker. "Powerful and haunting," and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. This collection, the only one to appear during Jackson's lifetime, unites "The Lottery" with 24 equally unusual stories. Together they demonstrate her remarkable range - from the hilarious to the truly horrible - and power as a storyteller.

Don't waste your time.
I am not understanding why this got such a high review. It was a complete struggle to get through.
