When his great-grandson asks for a story, Rhett begins to tell him about his own mother's peculiar life.

'I had sort of a peculiar childhood, because my mother was peculiar. Not outright crazy, but very, very peculiar. Stories were her way of staying sane... A way to cover that hole in reality the way you might cover a well with boards so no one would fall in. But her stories stopped working for her. Because the thing she was afraid of was in the house with her all along.'

From 'The Bazaar of Bad Dreams', Stephen King's story adapted in three parts. Read by Colin Stinton.

Music by Timothy X Atack.

Abridged and produced by Mair Bosworth.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2016.
