One of the true classics of psychological suspense, about a writer and his No. 1 fan, now with a stunning new cover look.
Paul Sheldon used to write for a living. Now he´s writing to stay alive.
Misery Chastain is dead. Paul Sheldon has just killed her - with relief, with joy. Misery made him rich; she was the heroine of a string of bestsellers. And now he wants to get on to some real writing.
That´s when the car accident happens, and he wakes up splinted and in pain, in the remote mountain home of his rescuer, Annie Wilkes.
The good news is that Annie was a nurse and has pain-killing drugs. The bad news is that she has long been Paul´s Number One Fan. And when she finds out what Paul has done to Misery, she doesn´t like it. She doesn´t like it at all . . .
