Features

A ôhypnoticö (The New York Times Book Review) collection of four novellas from Stephen King bound together by the changing of seasons, each taking on the theme of a journey with strikingly different tones and characters. ôThe wondrous readability of his work, as well as the instant sense of communication with his characters, are what make Stephen King the consummate storyteller that he is,ö hailed the Houston Chronicle about Different Seasons. This gripping collection begins with ôRita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption,ö in which an unjustly imprisoned convict seeks a strange and startling revengeùthe basis for the Best Picture Academy Award-nominee The Shawshank Redemption. Next is ôApt Pupil,ö the inspiration for the film of the same name about top high school student Todd Bowden and his obsession with the dark and deadly past of an older man in town. In ôThe Body,ö four rambunctious young boys plunge through the fa_ade of a small town and come face-to-face with life, death, and intimations of their own mortality. This novella became the movie Stand By Me. Finally, a disgraced woman is determined to triumph over death in ôThe Breathing Method.ö
