Up for sale today is my book club edition ofThis is a very early 1977 Book Club Edition (BCE) of the classic The Shining. Overall a very nice copy, this hardcover with dust jacket is in VG+ condition and shows only very minor shelf wear. The binding is tight and the pages are very clean with no writing or markings. In the gutter of the last page it has the code S19, which represents that it was printed 22 weeks after the first standard printing.
First published in 1977, "The Shining" quickly became a benchmark in the literary career of Stephen King. This tale of a troubled man hired to care for a remote mountain resort over the winter, his loyal wife, and their uniquely gifted son slowly but steadily unfolds as secrets from the Overlook Hotel's past are revealed, and the hotel itself attempts to claim the very souls of the Torrence family.
Adapted into a cinematic masterpiece of horror by legendary Stanley Kubrick , "The Shining" stands as a cultural icon of modern horror, a searing study of a family torn apart, and a nightmarish glimpse into the dark recesses of human weakness and dementia.
