About the Book:
A STUNNING NEW NOVEL FROM ONE OF THE BEST-SELLING AUTHORS OF ALL TIME!

Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

Note From the Publisher and the Author:
"I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts," Stephen King said in the press release. "I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we're going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book."

Charles Ardai, editor of Hard Case Crime, promises a layered, genre-crossing story. "Joyland is a breathtaking, beautiful, heartbreaking book," he said. "It's a whodunit, it's a carny novel, it's a story about growing up and growing old, and about those who don't get to do either because death comes for them before their time. Even the most hard-boiled readers will find themselves moved. When I finished it, I sent a note saying, 'Goddamn it, Steve, you made me cry.'"
