Misery

Have you read the book, or seen the movie? Both are excellent.

The book was written by Stephen King between 1985 – 1987. It focuses on Paul Sheldon, a writer famous for Victorian-era romance novels involving the character of Misery Chastain. One day he is rescued from a car crash by crazed fan Annie Wilkes. Annie transports him to her house and, once finding out what he has done to Misery in his latest book, forces him to write a new book modifying the story – no matter what it takes.

The movie was released in 1990, starring Kathy Bates as Annie Wilkes and James Caan as Paul Sheldon. Superb acting by both made the movie worthwhile.

Some of us with celebrity status of any sort value our privacy. The deluded make it necessary, as evidenced in the book.

Psychotics and their enablers do no good service to anyone except themselves, if only for a time.

The survivors of Waco and those 13 young, abused prisoners in California might know what I’m talking about.

Misery loves company. That much is obvious.
