Home Shirley Jackson The Lottery and Other Stories. Compact, square and brown tortoise-shell plastic, with a powder compartment and a rouge compartment; the rouge compartment had obviously never been used, although the powder cake was half-gone. Th. at’s why I’m so pale, she thought, and set the compact down.

The South of these nine stories is filled with tension, crisis, and decision: a man walks out of prison only to entangle himself in the strands of his malevolent past; a diabolic stranger sets a small community against itself; a family clothes its poverty with genteel pretense; a wife acquiesces to her husband and in-laws' connivance over a forged will.From the black bayou waters of Louisiana to the red clay gullies of Alabama's pine woods, in the menacing shadows of the Pair-a-Dice Bar and around a family kitchen table by the first light of morning, Shirley Ann Grau's characters face the enormity of death, dream of crossing the color line, and test themselves and others in a variety of ways. An honest and unsentimental writer, Grau has created a remarkable range of characters and situations that will haunt readers' memories long after their stories have been set aside.

The sentences were well written but the stories as a whole were depressing and pointless. Strangely the writer always made sure to have something yellow in the stories.(yellow cars, yellow houses, yellow dresses, etc) Most stories were about black boys coming of age.
