Description

A beautiful hardback classic edition of King’s first published novel, CARRIE, produced for the 50th Anniversary, with a new introduction by Margaret Atwood.

Carrie White is no ordinary girl. Carrie White has the gift of telekinesis. So to be invited to Prom Night by Tommy Ross is a dream come true for Carrie – the first step towards social acceptance by her high school colleagues.

But events will take a decidedly macabre turn on that horrifying and endless night as she is forced to exercise her terrible gift on the town that mocks and loathes her. . .

The edition will be the first in a new line of ‘Stephen King Classic’ hardbacks.

As Stephen King explains in On Writing, he initially threw the early pages of the Carrie manuscript in the waste-basket. His wife, Tabby, discovered them, smoothed out the “crumpled balls of paper”, read them and said: “You’ve got something here”. He did – the start of a bestselling career and a book which would continue to resonate with readers half a century later. With its innovative themes and unique structure, Carrie would not only change the landscape of horror fiction but would influence generations of writers for over fifty years.

So we are very excited to be able to feature this exquisite new hardback edition to celebrate the jewel in a landmark year for Stephen King!
