Carrie.

by King, Stephen

Condition: See description


New York: Doubleday, 1974. First edition stated on copyright page and "P6" in the gutter of page 199 of King's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Stephen King on the title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Alex Gotfryd. 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.

First published in 1974, Carrie was Stephen King's first published novel.  This dark tale introduces the reader to Carrie White, a social outcast in her highschool, menaced by bullies while at school, and her religious nut of a mother at home.  Carrie gradually discovers that she has telekinetic powers, and woe to her tormentors...
