"PURE STEPHEN KING": FIRST EDITION OF REVIVAL
KING, Stephen. Revival. New York: Scribner, (2014). Thick octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket, original slipcase. $275.
First edition of King's "haunting… spectacular coming-of-age tale," a fine copy in the original dust jacket and slipcase.
Revival "is pure Stephen King… a master storyteller having the time of his life." Here he introduces "Rev. Charles Jacobs, a Frankenstein-like mad scientist who sets out to decipher the 'secret of the universe'… by harnessing and using a 'secret electricity' to open 'doorways to the infinite.'" But his experiment on Jamie Morton, in many ways a surrogate son, makes Morton "an integral part of Jacobs' sinister master plan" (New York Times). Revival is "dark, haunting, often heartfelt… a spectacular coming-of-age tale" (USA Today).
A fine copy.
