Originally published in 1949, The Lottery and Other Stories was Shirley Jackson's only short story collection published during her lifetime. When the title story was first published in the New Yorker in 1948, the magazine received more mail in response to a work of fiction than they ever had. Jackson would receive letters demanding an explanation for The Lottery for the rest of her life.
