kings quote on his TK

Discussion in 'The Tommyknockers' started by chief4db, Jan 17, 2016.

    chief4db When it doubt, run!

    king did an article with rolling stone. its an older article but I just read it. was pretty interesting. one of the things that stuck out to me was on how he trashed TK and also I never knew that misery was about cocaine. with annie wilkes actually being and representing the cocaine. she was my number one fan.

    Did the quality of your writing start to go down?
    Yeah, it did. I mean, The Tommyknockers is an awful book. That was the last one I wrote before I cleaned up my act. And I've thought about it a lot lately and said to myself, "There's really a good book in here, underneath all the sort of spurious energy that cocaine provides, and I ought to go back." The book is about 700 pages long, and I'm thinking, "There's probably a good 350-page novel in there."

    That was a good interview! And I'd agree about Tommyknockers--lol. That one frustrates me more than any other (Dreamcatcher is the closest tie) because there definitely IS a good story in there, buried in muck.

    I love this article. I really liked the book but do agree with him that it could have been shorter.
