Sleeping Beauties (Compact Disc)
Father and son team up to create one of King's most ambitious and sprawling novels yet that will suck you in for more hours than you can count. Blending a mix of fantasy, current political fears, gender-politics, and King's own natural prowess of storytelling, this is a book perfect for the spooky month of October.— Jesse
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER--Featuring a conversation with the authors In this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men? In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place... The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women's prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing father/son collaboration between Stephen King and Owen King.
