Reading The Haunting of Hill House (1959), by Shirley Jackson
To coincide with the current exhibition Death and Memory: Soane and the Architecture of Legacy Book Club will settle into Soane's library dining room for the evening to discuss Shirley Jackson’s classic novel The Haunting of Hill House.
In the third season of the Malign Interiors Book Club we will explore the phenomenon of the haunted house, its lingering in the landscape, in literature and in the minds of those possessed by its architecture and discuss how this literary trope might reflect on wider economic and urban issues.
