The Lottery is Shirley Jackson's chilling tale of a conformity gone mad.


When lottery fever struck Springfield, every copy of the book was borrowed from the library. Homer had one copy, but when he found the plot of the book he threw it in the fire.[1]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • The Lottery is a real piece of fiction written by Shirley Jackson. Unlike its depiction in the show, it's actually a short story instead of a book.
