Description

The Woman (Featuring A Brand New Bonus Novella!)
by Jack Ketchum
& Lucky McKee.

No Limited edition is being issued for this particular edition, so we will include a special signed plate with Overlook Connection copies by Jack Ketchum.

"He is, quite simply, one of the best in the business, on par with Clive Barker, James Ellroy, and Thomas Harris."
— Stephen King
 

Jack Ketchum collectibles always sell very well, but we expect there to be extra interest in this project because the movie of the same name is based on it. You probably heard about all of the fuss at Sundance the other week. People went nuts for the movie in more ways than one. Check out this infamous YouTube video and this interview: Confiscated & Burned: An Interview About 'THE WOMAN'. Previously, The Woman was only available as an ultra-expensive deluxe edition with a tiny print run, and this edition includes a BONUS NOVELLA that wasn't included in that edition!

About the Book:
The Woman is the powerful story of the last survivor of a feral tribe of cannibals who have terrorized the east coast from Maine into Canada for years now. Badly wounded in a battle with police, she takes refuge in a cave overlooking the sea.

Christopher Cleek is a slick, amoral — and unstable — country lawyer who, out hunting one day, sees her bathing in a stream. Fascinated, he follows her to her cave.

Cleek has many dark secrets and to these he'll add another. He will capture her, lock in his fruit cellar, and tame her, civilize her. To this end he'll enlist his long-suffering wife Belle, his teenage son and daughter Brian and Peg, and even his little girl Darlin', to aid him.

So the question becomes, who is more savage? The hunter or the game?

About the Bonus Novella:
Cow by Jack Ketchum and Lucky McKee takes place a year after the novel ends, but to say anything else could spoil some of the surprises!

Praise for Jack Ketchum:
"He is, quite simply, one of the best in the business, on par with Clive Barker, James Ellroy, and Thomas Harris."
—Stephen King

"Tautly-written, thoroughly excellent psycho-horror."
—Manchester Evening News

"...harrowing...relentless...terrifying."
—Edward Lee

"Ketchum's poetically brutal prose, as always, is boiled down to pure, intoxicating essence, without a hint of waste or dross left over. He's a storyteller and soulsearcher with a narrative as lean as Hemingway...."
—t. Winter-Damon

About the Author:
Jack Ketchum is the pseudonym for a former actor, singer, teacher, literary agent, lumber salesman, and soda jerk a former flower child and baby boomer who figures that in 1956 Elvis, dinosaurs and horror probably saved his life. His first novel, Off Season, prompted the Village Voice to publicly scold its publisher in print for publishing violent pornography. He personally disagrees but is perfectly happy to let you decide for yourself. His short story "The Box" won a 1994 Bram Stoker Award from the HWA, his story "Gone" won again in 2000 and in 2003 he won Stokers for both best collection for Peaceable Kingdom and best long fiction for Closing Time.  He has written eleven novels, the latest of which are Red, Ladies' Night, and The Lost. His stories are collected in The Exit At Toledo Blade Boulevard, Broken on the Wheel of Sex, and Peaceable Kingdom.  His novella The Crossings was cited by Stephen King in his speech at  the 2003 National Book Awards.

2012 CD Publications. New copy and protected in an acid-free book cover.
