"This is how we go on: one day a
time, one meal at a time, one pain at a time, one breath at a time.
Dentists go on one root canal at a time; boat builders go on one hull
at a time. If you write books, you go on one page at a time. We turn
from all we know and all we fear. We study catalogues, watch football
games, choose Sprint over AT&T. We count the birds in the sky and
will not turn from the window when we hear the footsteps behind as
something comes up the hall; we say yes, I agree that clouds often look
like other things - fish and unicorns and men on horseback - but they
are really only clouds. Even when the lightning flashes inside them we
say they are only clouds and turn our attention to the next meal, the
next pain, the next breath, the next page. This is how we go on."
- STEPHEN KING, "BAG OF BONES"
of Bones Coming to A&E December 11th 2011
A&E Network presents “Stephen King’s Bag of
Bones,” a four-hour epic miniseries based on The New York Times #1
bestselling novel, and featuring Pierce Brosnan’s return to television.
The two-night event from Sony Pictures Television premieres in
“Bag of Bones” is a ghost story of grief and lost love's enduring
bonds, about an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire and a new
love haunted by past secrets. Melissa George (“In Treatment”), Annabeth
Gish (“Brotherhood”), Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls), William Schallert
(“The Patty Duke Show”), Jason Priestley (“Beverly Hills, 90210”) and
Caitlin Carmichael (“True Blood”) also star.
In “Bag of Bones,” bestselling novelist Mike Noonan (Brosnan) is unable
to stop grieving after the sudden death of his wife Jo (Gish).
Suffering from writer’s block, a dream inspires him to return to the
couple's lakeside retreat in western Maine. While there, Mike befriends
an attractive young widow, Mattie (George) and her daughter Kyra
(Carmichael), and becomes involved in a custody battle with the child's
enormously wealthy grandfather, Max (Schallert). Though his ability to
write suddenly returns, Mike is plagued by ever-escalating nightmares
and mysterious ghostly visitations from Sara Tidwell (Rose), a blues
singer whose spirit lingers in the house. As he is haunted by the many
secrets at the lake, Mike comes to realize that his late wife still has
something to tell him.
