On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
by Stephen King
One of today’s most popular writers offers lessons and encouragement to the beginner, along with a warts-and-all account of a less-than-carefree life. The first portion of it shares the making of the writer: his financially impoverished but experientially rich childhood, his first efforts and influences, the threadbare existence he and his wife Tabitha lived until the publication of “Carrie,” and his remarkable success thereafter. The rest of the memoir answers the questions King hears from aspiring writers, as well as the questions they should be asking, but don’t. Pulsing with King’s love of language, reading, and storytelling, this is an entertaining and inspiring read, even for those who have no ambition to be authors themselves.
by Chloe Benjamin
Four children in 1969 New York City daringly visit a fortune-teller said to be able to predict the date of one’s death. Elder siblings Daniel and Varya grow up to become an army doctor and a scientist, respectively, while rebellious Klara works as a magician in Las Vegas and the insouciant youngest, Simon, finds love and dance in San Francisco. Yet thinking they know when they will die powerfully shapes their lives, often to their detriment, and we see each sibling struggling with this burden in four distinct narratives. How differently would their lives have turned out had they not consulted that fortune-teller?
