I’m a HUGE Stephen King fan, so I’m 100% on board with giving him the Noble Prize for literature!
Zach Davis of The Journal:
When it comes to the idealism that has to be present for the original stated goal of Nobel consideration, King has it in spades
I’ve been a Stepen King groupie since reading ‘The Dead Zone’ at South Jr. High in Romulus when it first came out.
A lot of people not familiar with his work might think he just writes spooky stories, but some of his best work are his non-horror novels. ‘The Body’, the book the movie ‘Stand by Me’ is based, and ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ are two of his best, and there’s nary a vampire or zombie in either! On the other hand, ‘The Stand’, my King favorite, is not only the greatest horror novel ever, but one I guarantee you’ll love even if you hate spooky stuff!
