Paul Sheldon. He's a bestselling novelist who has finally met his biggest fan. Her name is Annie Wilkes and she is more than a rabid reader—she is Paul's nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident. But she is also his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house.

Now Annie wants Paul to write his greatest work—just for her. She has a lot of ways to spur him on. One is a needle. Another is an ax. And if they don't work, she can get really nasty.

From Our Editors

Can a best-selling author escape from a psychotic nurse who wants him to respect her favourite literary character? Misery is a classic work of psychological horror from the ever-tapping typewriter of Stephen King. Brought to the masses as a movie starring Kathy Bates, it tells the story of a traveller who gets messed up in a car crash only to end up in the bed of an obsessive fan intent on keeping him in place, even if doing so means doing something overtly insane, like, oh, cutting off his legs. Like the best of King's writing, this story hinges on the woman's elaborate set of neurosis', giving way to a temperate environment where tension is the key.

Editorial Reviews

"Solid character delineation and terrifying insight. In addition to being able to scare the reader breathless, King says a tremendous amount about writing itself. We delight in his virtuosity."-The Washington Post

"Dazzlingly well-written."-The Indianapolis Star

"Terrifying…King is a terrific storyteller."-San Francisco Chronicle

"Truly gripping…some of the best writing King has ever done…the master has returned with a vengeance."-Publishers Weekly
