Fictional Chastain's


Fictional Chastains

Chastain used to be an uncommon name in literature--if not completely absent. That seems to have changed in recent years, perhaps due to Stephen King’s Misery Chastain, who appeared in 1987, and to Brandi Chastain, who made the name more familiar in 1999.
