Adorei esta história de terror psicológico. Uma obra de grande qualidade de Stephen King; aqui no seu melhor.
Um excerto do livro já tinha sido publicado em 2004 com o título “Lisey and the Madman” na antologia McSweeney’s Enchanted Chamber of Astonishing Stories e foi nomeada para o prémio Bram Stoker.
A História de Lisey foi nomeada em 2007 para o World Fantasy Award.
The genesis for Lisey’s Story was an incident in June 1999 in which King was hit by a van in Lovell, Maine, and seriously injured; while he was in the hospital, his wife Tabitha decided to redesign his studio. Coming home from the hospital and seeing his books and belongings in boxes, King saw an image of what his studio would look like after his death.
