Editorial Reviews

Stephen King, the beloved grandmaster of American horror fiction and a thoughtful pop culture critic and writing theorist to boot, stars in this episode of Symphony Space’s Thalia Book Club series, specifically discussing his 2006 release Lisey’s Story. Author and journalist John Connolly leads an illuminating question-and-answer session with King, who, having written over 40 published novels, is a well-practiced and easy speaker on the subject of writing, and brings a droll, dark humor to this audio event which will appeal even to the least horrifically-minded listener. Actress Maria Tucci also reads an excerpt from Lisey’s Story, which King himself considers to be the best of all his books.

Publisher's Summary

Lisey's Story, Stephen King's most personal and powerful novel, explores wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love. Known for his great eye for detail, continuity, and inside references, King's books have been translated into 33 languages and published in more than 35 countries. With more than 300 million copies of his novels published, King was the 2003 recipient of The National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. The author, who resides in Bangor, Maine, fills his books with references to the darker, more fearful side of American history and culture, accompanied by his knack for folksy, informal narration.

In this special event, recorded live at Symphony Space in New York City, King is interviewed by Irish novelist John Connolly. Maria Tucci reads a selection from Lisey's Story.

Dissapointment

I admire and am amazed at Stephen King's talents.
He has long been one of my very favorites and I have read over half of the books he has written.

Sadly...to me...NO MORE. What gives a famous personality the right to completely go off the subject of his book to intentionally insult the president of the USA in an effort to influence others towards his political views? I am gravely dissapointed and will no longer read or listen to Mr. King. I know he will not be affected by this...My son served in Irag while Mr. King was tucked safely in his tower typing away.

His books are not political ...so why interject insults.... Sorry Mr. King.....Carolann Moore
