Forget Stephen King’s On Writing. His best book on writing might be Misery.
My son has become a Stephen King fan and he just checked out Misery from the school library. I picked it up after he finished and raced through it. I first read it years ago. Still vivid, still as heart-stopping scary as I remembered.
But I had forgotten how much good writing wonkery there was. You could do worse than pick up Misery just for that alone.
Damn good stuff, plus we had an enjoyable time talking gleefully over the book when A had finished. Stephen King — bringing parents and teens together over the dinner table.
