Billy Halleck commits vehicular manslaughter when his lack of attention to driving results in the death of an old gypsy lady on the street. Overweight Halleck is a lawyer with connections, though, and gets off with a slap on the wrist. After the trial, the lady’s ancient father curses him with a single word, “Thinner.” Halleck begins to lose weight uncontrollably and must pursue the band of gypsies who are responsible for his deteriorating condition.

Now with an introduction by Stephen King on “The Importance of Being Bachman.”

    " Not the best by Stephen King, but I don't think it was so bad. There were really good ideas in this book, but unfortunately the final was a crap. "

    " Fat people are evil. Skinny people are sexy. These are scientific facts. This book tries to oppose those facts and I'm not standing for it! "

    " Gypsies don't work like that. If you can put a curse on someone making them skinnier and skinnier why the hell can't you fix your dang nose? "
