E-mail from Alice Lotvin Birney, July 5, 2000 (The information provided quoting the American National Biography is correct: Shirley Jackson was born in 1916, not 1919. Thus, the Oppenheimer biography is correct, while the Friedman biography is incorrect. This information was just confirmed for me by one of Shirley Jackson's daughters who explained that her mother was herself responsible for much of the confusion, preferring to appear to be the same age as her husband, Stanley Edgar Hyman)
