Book Description
 

GERALD'S GAME by Stephen King - FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Stephen King.

Stephen King cranks up the suspense in a different kind of bedtime story. A game of seduction between a husband and wife goes horribly awry when the husband dies. But the nightmare has just begun...

Jessie and Gerald Burlingame have been married for 20 years. Kinky sex is Gerald's game; lately he has taken to handcuffing his wife to the bedposts. During one such session, via a series of bizarre circumstances, Jessie accidentally kills her husband, and for the next 28 hours she is trapped. King effectively uses this tragicomic conceit to take us deep into the mind of the trapped wife. He is at the top of his form, creating in Jessie one of his most intense character studies. Jessie's ruminations lead her to remember a long-repressed episode of incest that is startling not because it becomes a central element of the plot, but because the details of the sexual relationship between father and daughter are salaciously -- and lengthily -- described. The gory stuff -- how Jessie escapes her handcuffs, for example -- is prime King.
