Stephen King publishes Bag of Bones

Bag of Bones is a 1998 novel by Stephen King.

Its themes include the trials of the writing process (the main character, Mike Noonan, has writer's block), the power of memory (the ghosts of Noonan's past as well as the ghosts of Sara Laughs, the lakeside house to which he moves) and the ghosts lurking close behind the everyday and the mundane. A human element, however, is the struggle of a young widow and her daughter to stay away from the grip of Max Devore, the power-mad figurehead of the community.
