Description

the Last Of The Richard Bachman Novels, Recently Recovered And Published For The First Time. Stephen King's Dark Half May Have Saved The Best For Last. A Fellow Named Richard Bachman Wrote blaze In 1973 On An Olivetti Typewriter, Then Turned The Machine Over To Stephen King, Who Used It To Write carrie. Bachman Died In 1985 (cancer Of The Pseudonym), But In Late 2006 King Found The Original Typescript Of blaze Among His Papers At The University Of Maine's Fogler Library (how Did This Get Here?!), And Decided That With A Little Revision It Ought To Be Published. blaze Is The Story Of Clayton Blaisdell, Jr. -- Of The Crimes Committed Against Him And The Crimes He Commits, Including His Last, The Kidnapping Of A Baby Heir Worth Millions. Blaze Has Been A Slow Thinker Since Childhood, When His Father Threw Him Down The Stairs -- And Then Threw Him Down Again. After Escaping An Abusive Institution For Boys When He Was A Teenager, Blaze Hooks Up With George, A Seasoned Criminal Who Thinks He Has All The Answers. But Then George Is Killed, And Blaze, Though Haunted By His Partner, Is On His Own. He Becomes One Of The Most Sympathetic Criminals In All Of Literature. This Is A Crime Story Of Surprising Strength And Sadness, With A Suspenseful Current Sustained By The Classic Workings Of Fate And Character -- As Taut And Riveting As Stephen King's the Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.the Washington Post - Bill Sheehanperhaps Because It Was Written Relatively Late In His Apprenticeship (and Perhaps Because It's Had The Benefit Of A Recent Stylistic Makeover), blaze Emerges As The Best Of The Bachman Books, A Minor But Solidly Entertaining Addition To King's Prodigious Body Of Work Ultimately, blaze Stands On Its Own And Deserves To Be Judged For What It Is: A Small, Honestly Crafted Story Filled With Genuine Narrative Pleasures, And With The Promise Of Better Things To Come.
