Id like to ask Mr. Joe Hill what kind of school he and his bother/sister(s)
went to. I just finished:The Waste Lands , Which has very vivid
descriptions of : The Piper School . It is a safe assumption to say that
Mr. King did not attend any school remotely like it when he was young.
\Im thinking that Sai King , 'knew' about such schools because he was
sending his kids (or had sent) to such an institution , ...and Mr. King
wasn't digg'n it... I believe Mr. King would have little in common, with
the vast majority of the other parents in such a school that was
anything like Piper
I believe King had the idea for Jake and Piper , back when he was...
like 19, but didn't start writing the actual book, until he had Kids of
his own...kids that went to a school not unlike Piper
and I believe that such a school would grate against Mr. Kings
Nerves ...Grate hard ,and against the grain, do Ya' ken
I do not expect an answer from Mr. Hill...but I can dream of
the day when he and some others might come here
and talk to us.
