The Word According to Karp

Posted: September 28th, 2021 12:57:46 pm

Stephen King's BILLY SUMMERS is not only a tense, taut, must-read thriller — it's the prolific author's most definitive examination of writing as a craft since ON WRITING! But, Stephen King wrote ON WRITING, his bestselling "memoir of the craft," in 2000; is he still following his own advice over 20 years later? In this episode of The Word According to Karp, Simon & Schuster CEO Jon Karp gets to the bottom of that question and tells some fun anecdotes about the King himself along the way!
