KING STEPHEN

London: New English Library, 1974. First Edition. Hard Cover. Dust Jacket. First UK Edition. 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.

Carrie

King, Stephen

New York: Doubleday and Company, 1974 First edition, first printing with "P6" to page 199. Publisher's maroon cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Alex Gotfryd, lettered in yellow, white and black. Book fine; unclipped dust jacket, with a hint of faint toning to the spine, tiny closed tear to the top edge of the front panel, light rubbing to rear panel, else a bright and clean copy of King's first novel, near fine overall. An epistolary novel, Carrie tells the story of Carrie White, a teenage misfit with telekinetic powers. After being broken down by her fanatically religious mother and humiliated by her classmates, Carrie decides to use her powers to get revenge on the people who hurt her. Although it was only his first novel, Carrie remains one of King's most popular stories. Indeed, as The New York Times confirms in its review, "King does more than tell a story" and lauds "That this is a first novel is amazing. King writes with the kind of surety normally associated only with veteran writers." Notably, Carrie was first adapted into a film by Brian De Palma in 1976 and was reimagined in 2013 by Kimberly Pierce.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
