Description:
In Pepper Street, an attractive suburban neighbourhood filled with bullies and egotistical bigots, the feelings of the inhabitants are shallow and selfish. One child stands alone in her goodness: little Caroline Desmond, kind, sweet and gentle, and the pride of her family. But the malice and self-absorption of the people of Pepper Street lead to a terrible event that will destroy the community of which they are so proud. Exposing the murderous cruelty of children, the blindness and selfishness of adults, Shirley Jackson reveals the ugly truth behind a 'perfect' world.

An excellent short novel, not a word out of place; strange, darkly humorous, Gothic and compelling.
