King publishes his first novel through Doubleday publishing. Carrie is the story of a girl with psychic powers who seeks revenge on bullies in school. After being initially discouraged with the progress of his work, King throws the manuscript away only to have his wife, Tabitha, return it to him, encouraging it’s completion. For this, the novel is dedicated to her.
This is for Tabby, who got me into it – and then bailed me out of it.
