Hi everybody from Paris, France.
I hope to be on the right forum.
I read actually "Doctor Sleep", and I am shady by a détail.

In the french publishing, the couple which holds a campsite, page 183, when the "Truths" arrived, are called Mr et Ms KOZY.
Then, when the "Truths" leave the place on the following morning, the couple finds a pudding with apples, and tell each other their dreams.
She speack about insurance and he does not reply because of his paedophiliac dreams.
But their name is different :
In the page 188, they are called Mr and Ms SALKOWICZ.

So, I am wrong or right ?

Anyway, thank you to Stephen for all the pleasure.

A French friend.

The campsite is a "Kozy Campground"...this thing we Americans have with names, titles...many cities have subdivisions with names...Deer Run...Emerald Forest...Satanic Heights...and "Kozy Campground" is the name of the place...its title. There could very well be established businesses that go by that name...or is that KOA? The Salkowicz's are the folk that run that particular Kozy Campground.

Je suis tres bete! A bit of French I picked up in a class I took.

Tu as raison et tu n'as pas raison - les deux! Ses noms sont Monsieuer et Madame Salkowicz, mais ils sont les propriétaires du terrain de camping "Kozy".
Sometimes in colloquial English (anglais familier), the owners of a certain place are called "Mr. and Mrs. _______". In this case, it's "Mr. & Mrs. Kozy" because of the name of the campground. I hope this makes sense and explains it to you. :)
