Some great interviews and features and reports:
Here’s a nice overview of critical response to Lisey’s Story.
I’ve had an unconfirmed report that King will be on BBC4’s Desert Island Disks on Sunday, November 19th. This program will likely NOT be archived on the BBC site after it is presented due to rights restrictions.
The new Carrie stage play runs off-Broadway at P.S. 122 in New York from December 2-30th. Tickets, priced $18, are available by calling (212) 352-3101. P.S. 122 is located at 150 First Avenue at Ninth Street.
After about a week on eBay, the bench King signed for charity went for a little more than $2,000. Someone in Virginia bought it. The money goes to the Maine Discovery Museum in downtown Bangor.
Don’t expect esteemed filmmaker Frank Darabont to make nice with The Mist. “This one’s more angry than what I’ve done before,” he tells the Los Angeles Daily News. “To get my ‘shoot fast and loose’ legs under me, I did an episode of The Shield. I had such a blast. I put aside everything I know about filmmaking, the whole Kubrick wannabe approach and shook things up.”
