en Limba Engleză Paperback – 28 Jun 2017
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. These faces are indiscernible to the naked eye on the actual covers but they can be found and identified with the zoom mechanism on http://www.stephenkingfaces.com/
