11.22.63
December 4th, 2011

You might not think Stephen King is the greatest writer in the world, but here’s what he does well, if nothing else. When you pick up 11.22.63 (another doorstop the size of It and The Stand) you might emit a small groan about how long it will probably take to get through it.

We are not alone
November 7th, 2010

Forget everything you’ve learned from TV and the movies. The Eerie Silence isn’t about strange grey bipeds crashing at Roswell and hiding at Area 51 or descending into parks in Washington DC asking us to take them to our leaders.

September 8th, 2014

Tapping Tensions of South Africa
April 13th, 2010

A good example of where she succeeds is a seemingly throwaway sequence in Let the Dead Lie, where a teenaged white girl buys an ice cream from a black vendor near a popular beach. The hero watches the girl treat the much older man somewhere between dismissal and contempt. Instead of anger, Cooper realises the girl’s no more evil than an animal hunting prey, with simply no concept of another way.
