The Wind Through The Keyhole este un roman de sine stătător și o minunată introducere în seria The Dark Tower. 
Urmând conceptul de poveste în poveste, cartea îl are în prim-plan pe același Roland Deschain aflat în căutarea Turnului Întunecat. 
Povestind o întâmplare din primele sale zile de pistolar, Roland scoate la iveală adevăruri de mult îngropate sub pecetea tăcerii. 
Trimis de tatăl său să investigheze dovezile despre un criminal care își poate schimba înfățișarea, Roland ia in grijă un băiat terifiat, dar curajos pe nume Bill Streeter care este singurul supraviețuitor al masacrului comis de ciudatul criminal. 
Roland fiind doar un adolescent îi citește băiatului o poveste pe care mama lui obișnuia să i-o citească. Povestea se numește The Wind Through The Keyhole.

THE NUMBER ONE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER.For readers new to The Dark Tower, THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE is a stand-alone novel, and a wonderful introduction to the series. It is a story within a story, which features both the younger and older gunslinger Roland on his quest to find the Dark Tower. Fans of the existing seven books in the series will also delight in discovering what happened to Roland and his ka tet between the time they leave the Emerald City and arrive at the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis.This Russian Doll of a novel, a story within a story, within a story, visits Mid-World's last gunslinger, Roland Deschain, and his ka-tet as a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam.

(The novel can be placed between Dark Tower IV and Dark Tower V.) Roland tells a tale from his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt ridden year following his mother's death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape shifter, a 'skin man,' Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast's most recent slaughter. Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, 'The Wind through the Keyhole'.

'A person's never too old for stories,' he says to Bill. 'Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.' And stories like these, they live for us.The back cover of the UK hardcover edition features some 8,000 faces of those who entered the StephenKingFaces competition.

A gem of a novel, enchanting and enchanted ... King is utterly at home in Mid-World, and the cadences and rhythms of the vernacular he has created provide a language fitting for the stories and legends he recounts. -- Guardian [A] phantasmagorical folk tale ... King's ability to entertain and unsettle cannot be denied. The skill with which he delivers a shock or sense of gothic terror is simply unmatched -- Independent on Sunday Perfectly balanced: another excellent example of King's sheer skill as a storyteller. -- Daily Express Like John Steinbeck, he's an unfussy writer whose voice is rooted equally in the rhythms of everyday speech and the mythic made manifest in everyday life. Indeed, reading King, you often sense the presence of the dustbowl America of The Grapes of Wrath ... a King novel has a sparse elegance that most novelists never achieve in a whole career. Put it down to the insistent, economical and wholly distinctive authorial voice. -- SFX Magazine A frantic-paced puzzle-box adventure that encompasses gunslinger Roland Deschain's early years, werewolves and powerful storytelling. -- Shortlist King is one of the great popular artists of our time. -- Independent Classic King, fine characters, compellingly written in a gripping, well-honed plot -- Daily Express on WOLVES OF THE CALLA Superbly energetic, it's King at his best. -- Mail on Sunday on WIZARD AND GLASS
