Shirley Jackson.

Obit Magazine notes that today marks the death of Shirley Jackson at age 48 in 1965. Best known for "The Lottery" (1948), The Haunting of Hill House (1959), and We Have Always Lived in the Castle (1962), Jackson, in Jonathan Lethem's words, "wrote about the mundane evils hidden in everyday life." She received a posthumous Edgar Award for her short story "The Possibility of Evil."
