It can be invigorating, sometimes even shocking, like. . a beautiful curio for sale laid out on a cheap blanket at a street bazaar. ' . In . THE . BAZAAR . OF . BAD . DREAMS there is a curio for every reader - a man who keeps reliving the same life, repeating the same mistakes over and over again, a columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries, a poignant tale about the end of the human race and a firework competition between neighbours which reaches an explosive climax. . There are also intriguing connections between the stories; themes of morality, guilt, the afterlife and what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. . Effervescent yet poignant, juxtaposing the everyday against the unexpected, these stories comprise one of . King's finest gifts to his constant reader as well as to those fascinated by the autobiographical insights in his celebrated non-fiction title . ON . WRITING. '.
