Now in Spanish, the #1 national bestseller about a famous novelist held hostage by his "number one fan" and suffering a frightening case of writer's block-that could prove fatal. One of "Stephen King's best...genuinely scary" (USA TODAY). [English edition: Misery, by Stephen King / 9781501143106 (Scribner, 1/5/2016)] Paul Sheldon is a bestselling novelist who has finally met his number one fan. Her name is Annie Wilkes, and she is more than a rabid reader-she is Paul's nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident. But she is also furious that the author has killed off her favorite character in his latest book. Annie becomes his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house. Annie wants Paul to write a book that brings Misery back to life-just for her. She has a lot of ways to spur him on. One is a needle. Another is an axe. And if they don't work, she can get really nasty.
