Additional Information about Desperation
Portions of this page Copyright 1995 - 2007 Muze Inc. All rights reserved.

Somewhere along Route 50 in the Nevada desert exists a dead-end town called Desperation. Those who cross the town line embark on a never-ending journey of desperation, lunacy, and terror, as they find true desperation in a town that no one leaves. The novel is a companion piece to "The Regulators", which is written under the name Richard Bachman and which involves many of the same characters in the same sort of setting, but exhibits an entirely different flavor than "Desperation". The books can be read separately, in either order, and each can stand on its own as a fully-realized work. But they are interdependent works of fiction as well.

Industry reviews

"Zooming along is Stephen King's massive new tour bus, "Desperation" We feel the mild private tingle of a passenger who senses, after the first swoosh of brakes, pillowy turn, and resumed deep-thrum acceleration, that he is in great hands."
New Yorker - Roger Angell (09/30/1996)

"...[I]f reading 'The Regulators feels like watching a taut Rod Serling script directed by Sam Peckinpah, reading 'Desperation' feels like screening a rambling spaghetti western directed by Sam Raimi....For all its mysteries, monsters and gore, 'Desperation' builds to a climax reminiscent of King's epic 'The Stand', a crisis of faith in which characters make terrible choices with consequences far beyond mere survival."
Washington Post Book World - Michael A. Morrison (09/22/1996)

"Knockout classic horror: King's most carefully crafted, well-groomed pages ever.

Book is in very good condition.
