In a review of The End in Sunday’s NYTimes Book Review, I came upon the word ‘shivaree.’ In my grandpa’s book, Back Forty, he used a similar word, shivery. Great word, means this, according to my two-volume The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (which I don’t use near enough, and which Anna will someday awaken to):
Causing a shivering feeling, esp. from cold or fear.
