    Default Looking for a Previous Moment from a King Novel

    How did you discover the Dark Tower? Always been a follower since Cujo, the first Dark Tower book grabbed me: "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." I read an interview where he said it was his best opening line EVER, and I tend to agree!

    Who is your favorite character? The Ka-tet, including Oy.

    What is your favorite book? They are all one as far as I'm concerned.

    How old are you? MYOB.

    Where are you from? Currently living in Jomtien, Thailand.

    Do you have a nickname? "Butch" to family and friends. (Which are you?)

    How did you find this site? Google search

    Default Which Novel Was This?

    I am looking for the novel where King described two matrons sharing cookies and tea in the afternoon, sun shining into their nook. It is one of the most vivid memories I've ever received from a writer, and I'd like to revisit.

    I would guess at "The Little Sisters of Eluria" as this is the only book I can think of that has matron's in it. However there is no reference to Tea or cookies in any of the book text. and 'nook' is only referenced in one passage that includes Roland and Sister Jenna:

    ďBesides,' she said as they lay back against the embankment of the little nook they had found, 'they'll not follow. Those that are left - Michela, Louise, Tamra - will be packing up to move on. They know to leave when the time comes; that's why the Sisters have survived as long as they have. Ē
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Lisey's Story has quite a few mentions of a memory nook, including with Lisey and Amanda having a discussion in the nook.

    Yes, I probably need my own dedicated welcome back thread, but somehow I don't think Jerome would like that.

    Or we can report "Brice sightings" around the board.

    "Details are sketchy, but witnesses report seeing a Brice post in the Rock n Roll Music Video thread earlier today."

    Haha. I understand. I was gonna say: "Well, now you're all in", but realized that was a horrible set-up for a That's What She Said joke, so I'll just say: Welcome?
