For readers new to The Dark Tower, The Wind Through the Keyhole is a stand-alone novel, and a wonderful introduction to the series. The Dark Tower is now a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba.
The No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller The Wind through the Keyhole is a perfect bridge between the fourth and fifth novels in Stephen King's epic masterpiece. A story within a story which features both the younger and older gunslinger, it is also a wonderful introduction to The Dark Tower series.
As Roland Deschain, and his ka-tet leave the Emerald city, a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam. While they shelter from the starkblast, Roland tells a story about his younger days, when he was sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-changer.
At the scene of the crime he had tried to comfort a terrified young boy called Bill Streeter by reciting a story from The Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, 'The Wind through the Keyhole'.
'A person's never too old for stories,' he said to Bill. 'Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.'
And stories like these, they live for us.

THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE: A DARK TOWER NOVEL
With his dry, New England accent, Stephen King would never be mistaken for a professional narrator. But that hardly matters when he's reading his own work, especially a novel as flat-out entertaining as his new addition to the Dark Tower series. Covering events that take place between the fourth and fifth books, this installment follows gunslinger Roland Deschain of Gilead and his pals as they sit out a storm on their journey to the Dark Tower. While they wait, Roland tells them a story about when his father sent him to hunt down a shape-shifter and a legendary tale about a boy named Tim Stoutheart and his adventures with a wizard and magic tiger. King's narration is so effective, especially when evoking some of the colorful characters like gruff cowboys or otherworldly critters that listeners will assume he's picked up some technique from the pros who've narrated his many books over the years. The audiobook includes a bonus: King reading the first chapter of Doctor Sleep, his forthcoming sequel to The Shining. A Scribner hardcover.
