Includes the story “1922”—now a Netflix original film starring Thomas Jane and Molly Parker.
Four unforgettable novellas that explore the dark side of human nature from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King.

Finally, the trust forged by more than twenty years of matrimony is irrevocably shattered when a woman makes a chance discovery leading to the horrifying implications of just who her husband really is in "A Good Marriage."
