Sempre hem viscut al castell de Shirley Jackson (1962)

  1. 151
    Rebecca de Daphne Du Maurier (teelgee)
  2. 101
    The Wasp Factory de Iain Banks (taz_)
    taz_: I suspect that Iain Banks' "Wasp Factory" character Frank Cauldhame was inspired by Shirley Jackson's Merricat, as these two darkly memorable teenagers share a great many quirks - the totems and protections to secure their respective "fortresses", the obsessive superstitions that govern their daily lives and routines, their isolation and cloistered pathology, their eccentric families and dark secrets. Be warned, though, that "The Wasp Factory" is a far more explicit and grisly tale than the eerily genteel "Castle" and certainly won't appeal to all fans of the latter.… (més)

    A Head Full of Ghosts de Paul Tremblay (sturlington)
    sturlington: Sisters named Merry. Tremblay was clearly influenced strongly by Jackson.
  4. 20
    Who was Changed and Who was Dead de Barbara Comyns (laytonwoman3rd)
  5. 20
    The Bloody Chamber de Angela Carter (sturlington)
  6. 43
    Els estranys talents de la Flavia de Alan Bradley (citygirl)
    citygirl: Castle is much darker and Flavia is more adorable than creepy (Merricat is quite creepy), but if you're interested in unusual young protagonists, with a very particular world view, try these.
  7. 11
    The Hill of Dreams de Arthur Machen (Nialle)
    Nialle: Young, emotionally complex, imaginative narrators in isolated situations - have something going on that the reader only glimpses before the big reveal
  8. 22
    The Franchise Affair de Josephine Tey (lahochstetler)
  9. 11
    The Behaviour of Moths de Poppy Adams (sparemethecensor)
    sparemethecensor: Two sisters with a mysterious relationship and dark history together, unreliable narrators, dark, old, rural houses with mysteries of their own... Though the books take different plotlines, they share so many similar elements that people who enjoyed the setting and storytelling of one will likely enjoy the other.… (més)

    The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag de Alan Bradley (kraaivrouw)
  11. 01
    Goblin de Ever Dundas (wandering_star)
    wandering_star: Similar tone (and Dundas credits Jackson in the book's afterword).
  12. 01
    The Island at the End of the World de Sam Taylor (passion4reading)
    passion4reading: Though set within completely different landscapes, situations and time periods, each novel has the central theme of an outsider intruding upon an isolated close-knit family group, with disastrous consequences.

A US classic, I’m told, but other than the title, I knew nothing about it. A copy popped up for 99p on Kindle, so I thought it worth a go. The novel opens with the sort of declarative introduction used by Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, a US literary technique, I think – in which the novel’s narrator reveals she is eighteen, has a somewhat warped view of the world, is despised by the inhabitants of the village in which she lives, and resides alone with her older sister in a large house on the outskirts. It’s gradually disclosed the family were poisoned some years previously, and the older of the two women was charged but then acquitted. A male cousin comes to visit, and gradually takes over the women’s lives, incurring the resentment of the younger. And eventually changing their situation profoundly, although perhaps not in the way he wanted. Is it a classic? I’m not sure… The central twist is obvious a handful pf pages in, and doesn’t really add much to the narrative. The narrator’s worldview is… individual. But the book still feels it belongs on a straight line from Catcher in the Rye, and Salinger’s novel is not a book I hold in high regard. I suspect it’s a novel I simply don’t have the cultural baggage to fully appreciate – which is something a lot of US critics and commentators should acknowledge, particularly in genre, as they seem to think the entire planet shares their worldview, sensibilities and culture. I may share a language with US citizens, but that’s all I share. ( )

Sembra proprio che Shirley Jackson si trovi a proprio agio nelle case infestate.
In "Abbiamo sempre vissuto nel castello" appare tutto il più classico armamentario del genere: una magione tetra e isolata, un fatto di sangue accaduto molto tempo prima e delle presenze ostili ai nuovi visitatori intrappolate in un loop di azioni abitudinarie. Ciò che differenzia questo romanzo dai classici del genere è che le presenze che abitano Blackwood House sono persone vive.
Le sorelle Constance e Mary Catherine insieme al loro zio disabile Julian vinono soli in quella grande casa da quando, sei anni prima, tutta la numerosa famiglia Blackwood è stata sterminata con il veleno durante un pranzo. La principale sospettata, Constance, era stata alla fine prosciolta da tutte le accuse e ora i tre vivono ciascuno intrappolato nella propria routine: Mary Catherine con i suoi infantili riti apotropaici, Constance tra i libri di cucina e le faccende domestiche come una perfetta casalinga anni 50 e lo Zio Julian tra le sue carte intento a scoprire cosa è accaduto veramente durante il pranzo che ha ucciso la sua famiglia, compresa sua moglie, e lo ha ridotto in sedia a rotelle. Questa routine potrebbe anche essere scambiata per quieta felicità ma è chiaro che al di sotto dell'apparenza scorre qualcosa di molto inquietante che non aspetta altro che riemergere in superfice attraverso una crepa, crepa che si presenta un giorno davanti alla porta dei Blackwood sotto forma del cugino Charles: il primo segnale che il cambiamento rischia di modificare per sempre gli equilibri tra i personaggi.
La Jackson è una maestra nello scavare nella psicopatologia del quotidiano, ogni azione intrapresa dal personaggio può apparire perfettamente normale, ma con un semplice cambio di tono, di luci e di contesto, quella stessa azione diventerà improvvisamente disturbante, il segno di una follia che non aspetta altro che dilagare.

This was horrific and uncomfortable, I haven't read anything so disturbing and so emotional in a long time.
I had to stop and weep at one point, it appears this was perfectly tuned to fuck me up. ( )
  mjhunt | Jan 22, 2021 |
The plot was not at all what I expected, but it was still an excellent novel. Perfectly written and very creepy, with increasing tension throughout. I was on pins and needles waiting to find out what happenend in the end. It isn't the horror or super scary story I anticipated, but satisfying and creepy nonetheless. I just feel a bit unsettled now that I finished it (and I mean that in a good way). ( )
  JustZelma | Dec 20, 2020 |
A great little book with a Gothic "dreamy" feel. More of a psycho-suspense than a horror. ( )

Of the precocious children and adolescents of mid-twentieth-century American fiction ... none is more memorable than eighteen-year-old "Merricat" of Shirley Jackson's masterpiece of Gothic suspense We Have Always Lived in the Castle (1962).

Dedicatòria
Primeres paraules
Em dic Mary Katherine Blackwood. Tinc divuit anys i visc amb la meva germana Constance. Sovint he pensat que hauria pogut néixer home llop perquè tinc els dits del mig de les mans igual de llargs però m'he hagut de conformar amb el que em va tocar.
