Description

'A quick, satisfying read . . . the sign of a master simply elevating his own legendary game yet again' USA Today

In the small town of Castle Rock word gets around quickly. That's why Scott Carey only confides in his friend Doctor Bob Ellis about his strange condition. Every day he's losing weight - but without looking any different.

Meanwhile a new couple, Deirdre and Missy, owners of a 'fine dining experience' in town, have moved in next door. Scott is not happy that their dogs keep fouling on his lawn.

But as the town prepares for its annual Thanksgiving 12K run, Scott starts to understand the prejudices his neighbours face. Soon, they forge a friendship which may just help him through his mysterious affliction...

Includes illustrations (c) Mark Edward Geyer.

Review quote

One of King's great strengths as a writer is his mastery of the milieu of small-town USA, his uncanny ability to ventriloquise its inhabitants and keep his myriad pieces in play * Guardian * King's new novel is trick and treat, a poignant parable of prejudice overcome and resentment healed * Washington Post * Joyful, uplifting and tinged with sadness * Entertainment Weekly * Stephen King's slim new novel tackles weighty matters...delightful...an unforgettable and deeply moving conclusion * New York Post *
