Carrie.

King, Stephen

New York: Doubleday, 1974. First edition stated on copyright page and "P6" in the gutter of page 199. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author in the month of publication, "For Charlie and Shirley, best wishes - and I hope you enjoy my book as much as I enjoyed writing it- and as much as I’ve enjoyed all of Ray’s and Sarah Jones oldtown friends. Best wishes, Stephen King April 16,1974." The release date of Carrie was April 5, 1974; this copy was inscribed just 11 days later. This present copy is the earliest Stephen King inscription we have encountered. Fine in a very good dust jacket with light wear to the crown and a few closed tears. Stephen King has been read by more people than any living author, and more than most dead ones. As Don Heron commented in "The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural," King specializes in "contemporary American scenes, everyday parents and kids and teenagers, vulgarly realistic language - a believable setting awaiting the coming of terror." He has become the most popular horror writer of all time. Several adaptations of Carrie have been released, including a 1976 feature film, a 1988 Broadway musical, a 1999 feature film sequel, a 2002 television movie, and a 2013 feature film remake.

A number and small name in ballpoint on the FFEP otherwise a VG+ copy in an intact D/W which is NOT price-clipped and which has minor edgewear and light creasing near the edges. An above average copy of a book seldom seen in really nice condition as it was a very cheaply produced book where the pages brown easily. One of only 600 copies. It is one of the most frequently banned books in US schools. The Author found the book to be raw and with a surprising power to hurt and horrify.
