If It Bleeds Overview

In Stephen King's collection If It Bleeds, readers are treated to four stand-alone novellas. The titular story follows Holly Gibney of the Bill Hodges series as she tracks down a monster that feeds on human pain and misery disguised as a broadcast journalist. In "Mr. Harrigan's Phone," a young boy realizes he has a mysterious connection with his elderly neighbor, who just so happens to be dead. In "Life of Chuck," the tragic mystery of death is balanced with a raw celebration of life. And in "Rat," the final novella in the collection, a want-to-be-novelist discovers that he would do anything to finish his beloved book. The collection explores themes of obsession, the intersection of the supernatural and the mundane, the perils of the modern world, the nature of good and evil, and the power of love.
