October's book for the Adult Learner Book Club is We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson.
“We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Shirley Jackson's 1962 novel, is full of a macabre and sinister humor, and Merricat herself, its amiable narrator, is one of the great unhinged heroines of literature. ‘What place would be better for us than this?’ she asks, of the neat, secluded realm she shares with her uncle and with her beloved older sister, Constance. ‘Who wants us, outside? The world is full of terrible people.’” (GoodReads)
