Episode 37: The Haunting of Hill House

Hey, you wondrous human being! Welcome to episode 37! We read The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.

We discuss: leftover wine (what to do with a whole box of old wine? suggestions welcome); Olivia’s blurb-writing skills, Ashley’s story of Shirley Jackson; the uneasy, scary tone of the book (it is a successful scary story even if it doesn’t seem like it at first!); the very blatantly obvious themes of queerness in this book; how Jackson plays with horror tropes; questions we still have about some of the characters; and how we are technology mavens!
