Short, but still exciting story.

by MariaDPettiford, July 25, 2017

"The Lottery" is a short story by Shirley Jackson, written just months before its first publication, in the June 26, 1948. The story describes a fictional small town which observes—as do many other communities, both large and small, throughout contemporary America—an annual ritual known as "the lottery". It has been described as "one of the most famous short stories in the history of American literature". If you like short, but outstanding stories, this is one of that kind.
