First edition, boldly signed by Stephen King, a "stunning book… haunting even by King’s standards."
King's often terrifying yet "tender, intimate book… is haunting even by King's standards. And he knows a thing or two about haunting… At its heart Lisey's Story is a book about a marriage and the journey through grief that a widow— the title's Lisey— makes after the death of her husband… When. King writes in a coda to this blunt but stunning book that 'much here is heartfelt, very little is clever,' he is telling the truth" (New York Times). "First and last, this is a powerful love story… one of King's finest works" (Kirkus Reviews).
A fine copy.
