A stunning production the size of a family bible, this is widely considered to be the both the most beautiful and among the most desirable books bearing the author's name.

A very good wrapper with some edgewear, a tear and couple of tiny nicks to bottom edge. The book is in pristine, fine condition.

Synopsis

A deadly virus, accidentally released from a government lab, wipes out most of the world's population. The survivors are left to rebuild society, but two factions emerge - one led by a kind-hearted woman named Mother Abagail and the other by a demonic figure known as Randall Flagg. The two sides ultimately face off in a battle between good and evil. The book explores themes of humanity, morality, and the consequences of our actions.  King's intricate character development and immersive storytelling create a haunting and thought-provoking tale. "The Stand" is a chilling reminder of the fragility of life and the potential for both destruction and redemption in the face of disaster.
