This classic novel is arguably King's most famous story; it deals with many of King's recurring themes, including alcoholism, domestic violence, misfit, yet gifted children and the insanity of authors. The success of the novel firmly established King as a preeminent author in the horror genre, and was famously adapted for film by Stanley Kubrick in 1980.
