Stephen King is back with a new story to intrigue and entertain us.
Elevation is a sleek new mystery from the prolific author who brought us classics like The Shining and It. King takes us back to Castle Rock to explore the novel’s themes of discrimination and inclusion.
If you cannot wait to get your hands on the new book, Stephen King offers a sneaky peek with an exclusive excerpt first granted to Entertainment Weekly.
The official synopsis reads:
“Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis… Scott is engaged in a low-grade — but escalating — battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott’s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face — including his own — he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.”
