Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption (2020-09-29)

Av: Stephen King

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King's beloved novella, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption - the basis for the Best Picture Academy Award-nominee The Shawshank Redemption - about an unjustly imprisoned convict who seeks a strangely satisfying revenge, is now available for the first time as a standalone book.

A mesmerizing tale of unjust imprisonment and offbeat escape, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption is one of Stephen King's most beloved and iconic stories, and it helped make Castle Rock a place readers would return to over and over again. Suspenseful, mysterious, and heart-wrenching, this iconic King novella, populated by a cast of unforgettable characters, is about a fiercely compelling convict named Andy Dufresne who is seeking his ultimate revenge.

Originally published in 1982 in the collection Different Seasons (alongside "The Body," "Apt Pupil," and "The Breathing Method"), it was made into the film The Shawshank Redemption in 1994. Starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins, this modern classic was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, is one of the most beloved films of all time and is IMDb's top-rated movie of all time.

Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption er historien, novellen bak enda en av mine favorittfilmer; The Shawshank Redemption (den må du se om ikke har det). Stephen King har seilet opp som en av mine favorittforfattere i de siste årene, og her har King skrevet historien om hvordan Andy Dufresne blir uskyldig dømt for drapene av sin kone og hennes elsker. Det er karakteren Red som forteller hele herligheten. Slik som med Forrest Gump er det vanskelig for meg å ikke sammenlikne litteratur fra film, men her er historien stort sett 1:1 og det er akkurat sånn jeg liker.
