Novelist Paul Sheldon does not remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes, a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner, forever.
