Description

DUMA KEY by Stephen King.

 

FREE PROTECTIVE BOOK COVER With Every Copy From The Overlook!

On his web site, King describes DUMAS KEY as being about a guy named Edgar Freemantle who loses an arm in an accident and suffers paranormal symptomatology relating to phantom limb sensations. The short story “Memory” that appeared in issue #28 of Tin House magazine, debuted at a reading at Florida State University early in 2006, and appears to be either an excerpt from this novel or the early inspiration for it (thanks Bev!).

OVERVIEW: Six months after a crane crushes his pickup truck and his body self-made millionaire Edgar Freemantle launches into a new life. His wife asked for a divorce after he stabbed her with a plastic knife and tried to strangle her one-handed (he lost his arm and for a time his rational brain in the accident). He divides his wealth into four equal parts for his wife, his two daughters, himself and leaves Minnesota for Duma Key, a stunningly beautiful, eerily remote stretch of the Florida coast where he has rented a house. All of the land on Duma Key, and the few houses, are owned by Elizabeth Eastlake, an octogenarian whose tragic and mysterious past unfolds perilously. When Edgar begins to paint, his formidable talent seems to come from someplace outside him, and the paintings, many of them, have a power that cannot be controlled. Soon the ghosts of Elizabeths childhood return, and the damage of which they are capable is truly terrifying. Like Liseys Story, this is a novel about the tenacity of love and the perils of creativity. Its supernatural elements will have King fans reeling.
