Summary
  • Il re del brivido Stephen King, dopo il successo di “La scatola dei bottoni di Gwendy”, torna in libreria con “Elevation”. A Scott Carrey sta accadendo qualcosa di molto molto strano: ha perso peso, lo dice la bilancia, eppure il suo aspetto non è cambiato affatto. Scott racconta a Bob Ellis, dottore e amico di una vita, le sue perplessità. È come se nel suo corpo la gravità si stesse progressivamente dissolvendo. Quanto all<U+2019>umore, beh, si sente felice, per non dire euforico, come non era ormai più da molto tempo. Sarà anche per questo che è disposto a far di tutto per aiutare le proprie vicine - due lesbiche sposate appena giunte in città - a promuovere il loro nuovo ristorante vegetariano, accolto a fatica dalla provinciale e repubblicana Castel Rock. "Elevation" di Stephen King è un elogio alla leggerezza, una risposta ironica e positiva alle divisioni sociali e ai pregiudizi del presente
  • "Although Scott Carey doesn't look any different, he's been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn't want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis. In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King's most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade--but escalating--battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott's lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face--including his own--he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott's affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others."--
