The wind through the keyhole

In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King returns to the rich landscape of Mid-World, the spectacular territory of the Dark Tower fantasy saga that stands as his most beguiling achievement. Roland Deschain and his ka-tet'Jake, Susannah, Eddie, and Oy, the billy-bumbler'encounter a ferocious storm just after crossing the River Whye on their way to the Outer Baronies. As they shelter from the howling gale, Roland tells his friends not just one strange story but two . . . and in so doing, casts new light on his own troubled past. In his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt-ridden year following his mother's death, Roland is sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man" preying upon the population around Debaria. Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, the brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast's most recent slaughter. Only a teenager himself, Roland calms the boy and prepares him for the following day's trials by reciting a story from the Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother often read to him at bedtime. "A person's never too old for stories," Roland says to Bill. "Man and boy, girl and woman, never too old. We live for them." And indeed, the tale that Roland unfolds, the legend of Tim Stoutheart, is a timeless treasure for all ages, a story that lives for us. King began the Dark Tower series in 1974; it gained momentum in the 1980s; and he brought it to a thrilling conclusion when the last three novels were published in 2003 and 2004. The Wind Through the Keyhole is sure to fascinate avid fans of the Dark Tower epic. But this novel also stands on its own for all readers, an enchanting and haunting journey to Roland's world and testimony to the power of Stephen King's storytelling magic.

  • "Roland Deschain, der letzte Revolvermann, und seine Gefährten haben den Grünen Palast hinter sich gelassen. Als sie auf dem Pfad des Balkens ins Land Donnerschlag unterwegs sind, zieht ein heftiger Sturm herauf, und sie finden Schutz in einer verlassenen Hütte. Dort erzählt Roland seinen Begleitern, was in seiner Jugend geschah, nachdem er unbeabsichtigt seine Mutter umgebracht hatte: Sein Vater schickte ihn zu einer entlegenen Ranch, wo grausame Morde stattfanden. Alle Anzeichen deuteten auf einen Gestaltwandler als Täter hin, und es gab nur einen Zeugen - einen kleinen Jungen, der jetzt seines Lebens nicht mehr sicher war."

Mit Wind legt Stephen King einen achten Roman seines grossen Endzeitepos um den Dunklen Turm vor, bei dem es sich nach eigenem Bekunden um sein wichtigstes Werk handelt. Derzeit befindet sich eine Verfilmung des gesamten Zyklus in der Vorproduktion. Stephen King, 1947 in Portland, Maine, geboren, ist einer der erfolgreichsten amerikanischen Schriftsteller. Schon als Student veröffentlichte er Kurzgeschichten, sein erster Romanerfolg, 'Carrie', erlaubte ihm, sich nur noch dem Schreiben zu widmen. Seitdem hat er weltweit 400 Millionen Bücher in mehr als 40 Sprachen verkauft. Im November 2003 erhielt er den Sonderpreis der National Book Foundation für sein Lebenswerk."
