"THERE'S A REASON CELL RHYMES WITH HELL"
KING, Stephen. Cell. New York: Scribner, (2006). Octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket. $450.
First edition of King's terrifying tale of social breakdown delivered through the medium of cellphones, signed by him.
"Cell displays the author's habit of beginning with a real-world idea and following it into a hazy dreamscape, only to re-emerge from the vortex when his cautionary tale is over. In that sense, and in the visceral impact of its descriptions… this is a traditional King narrative studded with alarming signs of the times" (Janet Maslin in The New York Times).
