Hello all.
Some time ago I read that what St. King says he likes about A Good Marriage is that it was the first time he was tackling the issue of marriage and the secrecies married people hold from one another. Then again it seems that he already had done much of that in Lisey's Story, which was published in 2006, some four years before Full Dark, No Stars (2010). Would that mean that A Good Marriage actually was written before Lisey's Story, that long before it was actually published?

I think Lisey's Story was a celebration of a married couples life and intimacy whereas A Good Marriage was about people keeping secrets from each other (and how is could be possible for someone to live with a murderer/monster without having a clue).
