Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption - WikipediaKiller 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. Most people discovered this story via its movie adaptation, which bombed on its initial release, but found new life after being nominated for seven Academy Awards and endlessly rebroadcast on cable TV networks.

In , Andy Dufresne arrives at Shawshank Prison. In contrast to most other convicts, Dufresne is not a hardened criminal but a soft-spoken young banker, convicted of killing his wife and her lover. Like almost everyone else in Shawshank, Dufresne insists on his innocence. Red , the narrator, has an ability to deliver contraband of almost any type except, on his own principles, hard drugs and weapons into Shawshank. As a free man, Andy had been a rock-hound, having an interest in geology, and now he has immense amounts of free time on his hands, so he asks Red to get him a rock hammer, a tool like a small pickaxe he uses to shape the rocks he finds in the exercise yard into small sculptures.
