Joyland (hard case crime) Book Description

A STUNNING NEW NOVEL FROM ONE OF THE BEST-SELLING AUTHORS OF ALL TIME!

Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

"I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts. That combo made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one of my favorites. I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we’re going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book." – Stephen King

  • 2. As a kid looking for something to pique my literary hunger beyond theoutgrown Judy Blume and Babysitters Club series, I crept into my parentslibrary late one night and stumbled on a book about a pyrokinetic young girl onthe run with her father. I snuck it back to my room under my shirt and spentthe next few nights devouring it under my blankets with a flashlight. I quicklymoved on to The Shining, Carrie, Cujo, and It. And so began my literary loveaffair with Stephen King at 11 years old.Over the years, Ive loved some books more than others, but the Dark Towerseries were really what convinced me that he could do no wrong. But after hisaccident had taken its toll and a string of books read somewhat uninspired andformulaic, I figured his best work was behind him. I was a little sad, of course,but grateful for all the entertainment and inspiration I found through hisprevious books. Besides, everyone has to lose their mojo eventually, right?Oh, so very, very wrong.I knew it three chapters into 11/22/63. And now, the thrill ride that is Joylandproves it beyond a shadow of a doubt: Stephen Kings mojo is back, full force.Its like Jerry Garcia in a bag, man. Except in a book.And speaking of BOOKS...I drove to the store late last night and stayed up through the wee hours of themorning reading Joyland under my blankets, this time with a slightly moreadvanced book light. To those complaining about the fact that King didntrelease it on e-book, quit your whining. Reading an actual book (not a screen)is FUN. As an adult now with kids of my own who love to read, ebook arestrictly for school or literary emergencies (only real book lovers know what I
  • 3. mean) in our house. Holding a book in your hand, cracking the spine, creasingthe corners, getting water wrinkles on the pages from falling asleep with it onyour chest while you float around the pool... Its all part of the charm. If youhave to have it explained, you wouldnt understand anyway.Joyland is a scary, seductive, and fun thriller; a classic Stephen King read and aperfect addition to your summer reading list. If you want a synopsis, read thebook description above. But if you have any doubt in Stephen Kings mojo, justtrust me and give it a try. Because, lets be honest, Stephen King at his worst isstill infinitely better than that Twilight joke. But this is far from his worst, soeven if you liked that sparkly vampire crap, youre still ahead of the game.About the AuthorStephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwidebestsellers. Among his most recent are the Dark Tower novels, Cell, From aBuick 8, Everythings Eventual, Hearts in Atlantis, The Girl Who Loved TomGordon, and Bag of Bones.
