One of Stephen King’s most personal and emotionally resonant works is also reportedly his favorite. Two years after the death of best-selling novelist Scott Landon, his wife, Lisey, finally confronts the task of organizing the beloved author’s papers and memorabilia. Lisey’s increasingly unnerving journeys into the past force her to reckon with Scott’s harrowing history of abuse and her own role in his professional success. As the memories accumulate, Lisey uncovers her husband’s ultimate legacy: a dangerous and alluring alternate dimension that provided him with escape and inspiration. Part memoir, part fantasy, part horror, Lisey’s Story delivers a perfect visceral alchemy that’s pure King.
