DARK DREAMS: THE STORY OF STEPHEN KING.
by Nancy Whitelaw.
OVERVIEW: Stephen King is no stranger to Americans. Even if one has never read his books or seen the movies based on them, there is no ignoring his formidable thumbprint on literature in general and the horror genre in particular. But how did the youngest son of a struggling single mother become a household name? Part of the World Writers series, this well-documented look at King's life introduces the man who has become a legend for reinventing and legitimizing horror. Whitelaw has put together a seamless synthesis of interviews, biographies, and King's own writing, pared down for younger readers and illustrated with plenty of full-color photographs. She has a knack for sharing unusual details (relying often on King's candid words on critics, politics, pop culture, and his own writing) and for showing how important historical events did their part in shaping King's work. A time line, a list of major works and awards, a list of sources, a bibliography, and a list of Web sites conclude.-- Booklist.
