A landmark in American literature ("e;Chicago Sun-Times"e;) Stephen King s #1 national bestseller about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as teenagers an evil without a name: "e;It."e;
Welcome to Derry, Maine. It s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real.
They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made twenty-eight years ago calls them reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city s children. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that terrifying summer return as they prepare to once again battle the monster lurking in Derry s sewers.
Readers of Stephen King know that Derry, Maine, is a place with a deep, dark hold on the author. It reappears in many of his books, including "e;Bag of Bones,"e; "e;Hearts in Atlantis,"e; and "e;11/22/63."e; But it all starts with "e;It."e;
Stephen King s most mature work ("e;St. Petersburg Times"e;), "e;It "e;will overwhelm you to be read in a well-lit room only ("e;Los Angeles Times"e;)."e;
