Jackson, Shirley RAISING DEMONS
New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, (1957). First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine, with a hint of foxing here and there, in a like, price-clipped illustrated dust jacket that betrays some pale, ghostly dots of foxing, mainly to the flaps. A nice copy. Splendid jacket painting by Maxwell Mays in an appealing folk-art style.
Second hilarious chronicle of life in the cheerfully chaotic Shirley Jackson-Stanley Hyman household--follow-up to Jackson's LIFE AMONG THE SAVAGES. Readers of Jackson's dark fiction won't be surprised by the author's nimble wit, compassion and grace.
