Synopsis

This novel by bestselling author Stephen King explores the relationship between the writer and his work, through the voice of the widow Lisey Landon. Lisey's late husband, Scott, was an award-winning novelist, and when he died, hordes of authors and critics jumped to get their hands on his unpublished notes and documents. Their attitudes towards Lisey quickly turn from mild to threatening, and as she struggles to keep her husband's life and work from the grasp of these jackals, Lisey escapes into the fantastical world that her husband used to go to for inspiration--a world peopled with strange, wonderful, and sometimes dangerous creatures.

Dont bother with this one by far the worst of the worst by Stephen King. This book is disjointed, the phrasing is obnoxious and the characters are not as revealing as promoted
