Lisey's Story: A Novel (Mass Market)
Soon to be a limited series starring Julianne Moore
From the acclaimed #1 New York Times and undisputed King of Horror Stephen King, comes the story of a writer’s widow who must confront his demons after his death—Lisey’s Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptation of madness, and the secret language of love.
Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband Scott two years ago, after a twenty-five year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Lisey knew there was a place Scott went—a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it’s Lisey’s turn to face Scott’s demons, Lisey’s turn to go to that terrifying place known as Boo’ya Moon. What begins as a widow’s effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited.
Perhaps King’s most personal and powerful novel ever, Lisey’s Story is about the wellspings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.
