There's a guy like me in every state and federal prison in America, I guess - I'm the guy who can get it for you. And new convict Andy Dufresne wants two things from fellow prisoner Red: a small rock-hammer for carving stones and a giant poster of Rita Hayworth. So begins this mesmerising tale of unjust imprisonment, deep friendship and offbeat escape. Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption is one of King's most celebrated stories, and it helped make Castle Rock a place readers would return to over and over again.

Originally published in the collection Different Seasons, it was made into the film The Shawshank Redemption . Starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins, this modern classic was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, is one of the most beloved films of all time and is IMDb's top-rated movie of all time.
