With more than 300 million copies of his novels published, King was the 2003 recipient of The National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.

Audible Editor Reviews

Stephen King, the beloved grandmaster of American horror fiction and a thoughtful pop culture critic and writing theorist to boot, stars in this episode of Symphony Space's Thalia Book Club series, specifically discussing his 2006 release Lisey's Story. Author and journalist John Connolly leads an illuminating question-and-answer session with King, who, having written over 40 published novels, is a well-practiced and easy speaker on the subject of writing, and brings a droll, dark humor to this audio event which will appeal even to the least horrifically-minded listener. Actress Maria Tucci also reads an excerpt from Lisey's Story, which King himself considers to be the best of all his books.
