O “V hiši med hribi straši”, Shirley Jackson

O

Idejo za to knjigo sem najprej dobil iz revije Bukla, nato se je o njej pojavil tudi prispevek na novičarskem portalu MMC RTV SLO. V našem medijskem prostoru je verjetno letos dobila publiciteto zato, ker je letos prvič dobila slovenski prevod. Knjiga je sicer izšla že leta 1959, postala klasika žanra – o tem priča tudi podatek, da je bila 2 leti po izidu vključena v obvezno branje...
