The best synopsis of Stephen King’s novel Cujo can be found in one of his other books, On Writing. While explaining that writers should
forget plot, but remember the importance of ‘situation’, he writes that
Of course, there is more to Cujo than just that. As in every novel by King, several subplots are neatly intertwined, and some of those will be deus-ex-machinaed out of the story when they’ve fulfilled their purpose. It’s most definitely not King’s best work (written at a peak of drug and alcohol abuse), but it’s not bad at all.
