More on King

I have never been to Powell's Books, located in Portland, Oregon, but compensate with their terrific newsletter, which includes regular updates on the adventures of Fup, store cat.

Today's newsletter contains an interview with Stephen King that has me rethinking Lisey's Story. As a participant in what is becoming a long marriage, I am a sucker for reading about one. Besides that, King is on the mark about the whole "literary" vs. "popular" writer bit. Check it out.

The newsletter also containts an essay by writer Gillian Flynn, whose first novel, Sharp Objects, is all about "bad women." escape to the bookstore is in the offing, graciously underwritten by the folks. Thanks, Mom and Dad!

Authors, Stephen King
