oooh--shirley jackson is one of my favorite authors, but i would recommend WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE. it's really excellent, and it's a full book as opposed to a short story (or short story collection). here's the first paragraph to whet your appetite:
my name is mary katherine blackwood. i am eighteen years old, and i live with my sister constance. i have often thought that with any luck at all i could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both hands are the same length, but i have had to be content with what i had. i dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. i like my sister constance, and richard plantagenet, and amanita phalloides, the death-cup mushroom. everyone else in my family is dead.
