Hangsaman, by Shirley Jackson

  • Title:  Hangsaman
  • Author:  Shirley Jackson
  • Borrowed from Fairfax County, VA Library (Kindle Edition)
  • Started: 8/5/2016
  • Finished:  8/14/2016

A Shirley Jackson book I had not heard of?  And it is loosely based off a famous disappearance?  Wow, this is going to be great!

Two weeks later...

What the hell did I just read?

I was lost with this one.  I get the basic plot (raped/assaulted, strange relationship with family, etc.) but I was lost of the finer points.  The police detective interludes in the first part?  The "Tony" character in the last part.  Not sorry I read it, but not the book I was hoping to read.
