Doctor Sleep by Madison Smartt Bell Book Resume:
Sophisticated suspense from a National Book Award finalist, about a hypnotist tormented by insomnia and a hunt for a killer: “Excellent...revelatory writing.”—The Washington Post Book World Adrian Strother is a hypnotherapist who, paradoxically, can’t get to sleep. He’s left New York to ply his trade in a depressed section of London, treating phobias and addictions and doing the occasional job for Scotland Yard. That aspect of his work is about to get him involved with the case of a serial killer who targets little girls, as he treads the line between tortured wakefulness and surreal sleep, wrestling with his own demons and fighting to keep his past at a distance. Now the gifts of his cursed insomnia will be called upon to unlock the secrets of a man who believes he has discovered the key to immortality. Part spiritual pilgrimage, part psychological thriller, Doctor Sleep is witty, menacing, and “a rip-roaring good read” (Los Angeles Times). “A wonderfully inventive novel in the genre of the hard-boiled detective story, with metaphysical overtones...a poetic thriller, perfectly orchestrated, beautifully written, reverberant and entertaining.”—The Baltimore Sun

Doctor Sleep by Truong Tien Nghiep Book Resume:
On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless-mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and tween Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the "steam" that children with the "shining" produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father's legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant "shining" power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes "Doctor Sleep." Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan's own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra's soul...

Doctor Sleep (versione italiana) by Stephen King Book Resume:
LA STORIA DI SHINING HA UN NUOVO CAPITOLO DA QUESTO ROMANZO IL FILM ORA AL CINEMA Danny Torrance è cresciuto. E anche i suoi demoni. Perseguitato dalle visioni provocate dallo shining, la luccicanza, il dono maledetto con il quale è nato, e dai fantasmi dei vecchi ospiti dell'Overlook Hotel dove ha trascorso un terribile inverno da bambino, Dan ha continuato a vagabondare per decenni. Una disperata vita on the road per liberarsi da un'eredità paterna fatta di alcolismo, violenza e depressione. Oggi, finalmente, è riuscito a mettere radici in una piccola città del New Hampshire, dove ha trovato un gruppo di amici in grado di aiutarlo e un lavoro nell'ospizio in cui quel che resta della sua luccicanza regala agli anziani pazienti l'indispensabile conforto finale. Aiutato da un gatto capace di prevedere il futuro, Torrance diventa Doctor Sleep, il Dottor Sonno. Poi Dan incontra l'evanescente Abra Stone, il cui incredibile dono, la luccicanza più abbagliante di tutti i tempi, riporta in vita i demoni di Dan e lo spinge a ingaggiare una poderosa battaglia per salvare l'esistenza e l'anima della ragazza. Sulle superstrade d'America, infatti, i membri del Vero Nodo viaggiano in cerca di cibo. Hanno un aspetto inoffensivo: non più giovani, indossano abiti dimessi e sono perennemente in viaggio sui loro camper scassati. Ma come intuisce Dan Torrance, e come imparerà presto a sue spese la piccola Abra Stone, si tratta in realtà di esseri quasi immortali che si nutrono proprio del calore dello shining. Uno scontro epico tra il bene e il male, una storia agghiacciante e meravigliosa, un ritorno al fantastico e all'horror dei primi lavori di King. Doctor Sleep inquieta e fa paura, ma soprattutto commuove ed emoziona.
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King Book Resume:
Eine mörderische Sekte hat es auf Kinder abgesehen, die das Shining haben.

Just After Sunset by Stephen King Book Resume:
A stunning collection from international bestseller Stephen King that displays his phenomenally broad readership (stories published in The New Yorker, Playboy, and McSweeney’s and including the 25,000 word story “Gingerbread Girl” published in Esquire). Stephen King—who has written more than fifty books, dozens of number one New York Times bestsellers, and many unforgettable movies—delivers an astonishing collection of short stories, his first since Everything’s Eventual six years ago. As guest editor of the bestselling Best American Short Stories 2007, King spent over a year reading hundreds of stories. His renewed passion for the form is evident on every page of Just After Sunset. The stories in this collection have appeared in The New Yorker, Playboy, McSweeney’s, The Paris Review, Esquire, and other publications. Who but Stephen King would turn a Port-O-San into a slimy birth canal, or a roadside honky-tonk into a place for endless love? A book salesman with a grievance might pick up a mute hitchhiker, not knowing the silent man in the passenger seat listens altogether too well. Or an exercise routine on a stationary bicycle, begun to reduce bad cholesterol, might take its rider on a captivating—and then terrifying—journey. Set on a remote key in Florida, “The Gingerbread Girl” is a riveting tale featuring a young woman as vulnerable—and resourceful—as Audrey Hepburn’s character in Wait Until Dark. In “Ayana,” a blind girl works a miracle with a kiss and the touch of her hand. For King, the line between the living and the dead is often blurry, and the seams that hold our reality intact might tear apart at any moment. In one of the longer stories here, “N.,” which recently broke new ground when it was adapted as a graphic digital entertainment, a psychiatric patient’s irrational thinking might create an apocalyptic threat in the Maine countryside...or keep the world from falling victim to it. Just After Sunset—call it dusk, call it twilight, it’s a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It’s the perfect time for Stephen King.
