Stephen King Fan Publishes Jack Torrance’s Novel
In Stephen King’s The Shining, Jack Torrance is a frustrated writer who travels to an isolated hotel during winter in hopes of finding inspiration to write the novel he’s always wanted to start. Alas, “things” get in the way and Jack’s manuscript merely reads “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” over and over again. Not good when you’re aiming for a best seller.
Now New York artist Phil Buehler, a self-described Stephen King fan, has brought Jack Torrance’s book to press. Crediting the work to Torrance, Buehler has self-published a book that also repeats the phrase throughout but employs different formatting on each page, using the words to create various shapes.
