Annie Wilkes, Sheldon's number one fan, rescues the author from the scene of a car accident.

Written by: Stephen King.
Softcover 535 pp.
A collection of 4 of Stephen King's novellas, each markedly different in tone and subject, each on the theme of a journey. Here translated to Arabic. That Stephen King can transcend horror is proved triumphantly in these four works. At the same time, nobody in search of the utterly distinctive King brand of driving narrative, graphically rendered scene and character, and stamp-on-the-clinging-fingers cliffhanger plot will go away unsatisfied. These first three novellas have been made into movies: 'Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption' into Frank Darabont's 1994 The Shawshank Redemption , 'Apt Pupil' into Bryan Singer's 1998 film Apt Pupil, and 'The Body' into Rob Reiner's Stand by Me (1986).
