Bookseller Recommendation

Elevation

“Elevation is the brand new novella from master storyteller Stephen King. The author reads this audiobook, and the purchase of this audiobook includes the short story Laurie, which is unavailable in book form. Elevation tells the story of Scott Carey and his neighbors in Castle Rock. Scott catches his neighbors' dogs doing their business on his yard, and he confronts them. The dogs' owners are a lesbian couple, and the three get off to a rough start. As the story develops, the three bond, and the listener is left with a story that is uplifting, a tale of friendship and acceptance. Not what you may expect from Stephen King, but he isn't just a horror author. Highly recommended.”

Stephen King reads his latest novel—plus a bonus story, “Laurie,” unavailable in book form!

“As the narrator, King enhances the story’s good-hearted appeal with this twangy, aw-shucks delivery. He gives a strong portrayal of everyman Scott Carey, whose strange affliction sends him on a quest of self-discovery and neighborly kindness. And King’s isn’t just a pleasant voice. He crafts a polished aural experience with a keen sense of pacing and fun accents for his motley Maine characters.” —AudioFile

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together—a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences.

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.

In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic stories, 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.

From Stephen King, our “most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work” (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
