Trade paperback format.  Highly recommended if you need a good chuckle, whether you have kids or not!  Don't miss the sequel, Raising Demons!

In a hilariously charming domestic memoir, America’s celebrated master of terror turns to a different kind of fright: raising children.  

In her celebrated fiction, Shirley Jackson explored the darkness lurking beneath the surface of small-town America. But in Life Among the Savages, she takes on the lighter side of small-town life.

In this witty and warm memoir of her family’s life in rural Vermont, she delightfully exposes a domestic side in cheerful contrast to her quietly terrifying fiction.

With a novelist’s gift for character, an unfailing maternal instinct, and her signature humor, Jackson turns everyday family experiences into brilliant adventures.
