Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elizabeth is a demure twenty-three-year-old wiling her life away at a dull museum job, living with her neurotic aunt, and subsisting off her dead mothers inheritance. When Elizabeth begins to suffer terrible migraines and backaches, her aunt takes her to the doctor, then to a psychiatrist. But slowly, and with Jacksons characteristic chill, we learn that Elizabeth is not just one girl—but four separate, self-destructive personalities. The Birds Nest, Jacksons third novel, develops hallmarks of the horror masters most unsettling work: tormented heroines, riveting familial mysteries, and a disquieting vision inside the human mind.
