I’m reading Mr. King’s 2000 memoir right now, and it’s pretty good. Revealing, honest, humble, funny, and so far, without a single scene of terror.
Also, and contrary to popular memoir form, King has yet to write about his own experience of abuse. I’m halfway through the book and he hasn’t even been sexually assaulted yet. I’m worried that he might not understand how these memoir things are supposed to go.
But my favorite sentence from the book is this:
“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”
