Stars for SHIRLEY JACKSON’S “THE LOTTERY” graphic novel

“The Lottery” continues to thrill and unsettle readers nearly seven decades after it was first published, and SHIRLEY JACKSON’S “THE LOTTERY”: The Authorized Graphic Adaptation, created by Jackson’s grandson, Miles Hyman, adds a new dimension of dread by masterfully reimagining the iconic story with a striking visual narrative.

Anticipation is building, especially for Jackson’s centennial, and Hyman’s noirish version already has two starred reviews:

“A stunning graphic adaptation of a chilling classic. A haunting story of humanity’s herd mentality, brilliantly rendered.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“[Hyman] imbues realistic characters with a blocky stoicism in full-color panels flooded with sun-parched orange light… This standout work featuring a violent and inhumane tradition within a mundane setting will get readers thinking about causes and effects of our actions.” — Library Journal, starred review

SHIRLEY JACKSON’S “THE LOTTERY”: The Authorized Graphic Adaptation will be available October 25, 2016 from Hill and Wang and is available simultaneously in trade paperback.
