We Have Always Lived In The Castle, By Shirley Jackson

I loved this book, but I made the mistake of reading the introduction by Jonathan Lethem first. I like Lethem, I loved his book Motherless Brooklyn. But what an ass with his introduction, how about a spoiler alert? I often read book introductions first but I expect them not to give away the major plot points of the book, as Lethem's did. So the book was a bit of a let down when I already knew most of what was to come and the major revelations. None-the-less, an excellent as always Jackson story. I still think Hill House is my favorite, but Castle was also superb.
