An early short story from Shirley Jackson appears in the newest issue of The New Yorker magazine.
“Call Me Ishmael” was published in 1939 in Spectre, a literary magazine that Jackson co-founded with Stanley Hyman (her soon-to-be-husband) at Syracuse University.
Their son Lawrence Hyman provides commentary on the brief and mysterious story of a girl watching her mother watch another woman to The New Yorker, to accompany it.
