Novella Review: Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption – The Englishist

Killer clowns, telekinetic murderous rampages, haunted hotels , and…the undying nature of true friendship? Stephen King, known by many as the Master of Horror, threw audiences for a loop when he wrote Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption , a story that details a one-of-a-kind friendship between two convicted inmates and how one of the inmates pulls off a gutsy and frankly rather poop-laden escape. The novella—a fancy word for a short novel—is a far cry from the shrieks and scares we often associate with King, which might explain why it was included as part of King's Different Seasons collection. Get it? We guess even the Master of Horror himself needs a break from the keep-the-light-on-at-night stories he is so well known for.

Gwendolyn Stacy , Editor-in-Chief February 8, You can put the razor into my brain, I guess, but you should know that a sudden serious brain injury causes the victim to simultaneously urinate, defecate, and bite down… In fact, I understand that the bite-reflex is sometimes so strong that the victims jaws have to be pried open with a crowbar or a jack handle. He clawed his way up, through the changes in guards and wardens.

This irrepressible, inscrutable short story by Stephen King is about bad people who are sort of really good people, and sort of good people who refuse to let really bad things become their way of life. Red is a murderer, but we get past that in the first pages. Red is the philosopher-king of Shawshank Prison. For my money, Red is the point of the story. Andy remains a mysterious character, right to the end.
