Le romancier Paul Sheldon vient de mettre la dernière main à son nouveau roman, celui qui va le lancer dans la vraie littérature, loin de sa série de bestsellers à l'eau de rose et de leur lady de pacotille, Misery Chastain. Deux bouteilles de Champagne et un accident de voiture plus tard, il reprend connaissance. Une femme lui fait du bouche-à-bouche pour le sauver d'une insuffisance respiratoire. C'est l'hiver, à Sidewinder, dans le Colorado.

As time passed, he became aware that there were Periods of nonpain, and that these had a cyclic quality.
