Thinner - Stephen King

Well Billy has a curse laid on him after he accidentally kills a woman that is a Gypsy. The correct term now would be Romani I think. Billy’s curse is “Thinner” and he starts to lose weight. At first he’s happy but then afraid when he’s losing ten and then twenty pounds.

 

King does a great job giving full weight to Billy’s anger that his wife who he blames has gotten off free and it’s not fair. Other men involved with the case going to trial have also been affected.
