邪屋 | The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, the lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

《邪屋》被称为20世纪最具有文学性的“鬼”故事之一,是兰登书屋“现代文库”读者票选20世纪百大英文长篇小说之一,并获得美国国家图书奖提名。西林山庄因为其建造者的某种特殊偏好,使它在本该与地平线平行的任何建筑平面都为人难以察觉地倾斜了一点点,结果导致这栋房屋充斥着物理上的邪恶感。

比如,某些房间的门会自动关上,本该在某个角度能够看到的比邻建筑却跑到了另一边,本该在角落里的厨房却有多个出入口。当人站在某个位置时,会感到头晕目眩,失去平衡,甚至理智;有一个区域还让人莫名其妙地感到极度寒冷。一群人被邀请住进了这栋房屋,经历了一系列诡异的事件,并最后导致了悲剧的发生。实际上房屋里并没有鬼,人们内心的冷漠、互不信任和邪恶才是导致悲剧的原因。本书是对人的自私、冷漠、孤独等方面的深刻剖析。
