“On this day in 1947 Stephen King was born. As told in On Writing, his 2000 “memoir of the craft,” King’s childhood was formative of the man and his themes, ‘a kind of curriculum vitae.’ He denies any shape or through-line to his recollections, but this seems disingenuous: growing up may be ‘a fogged-out landscape from which occasional memories appear like isolated trees’ but the trees cited are mostly “the kind that look as if they might like to grab and eat you.”…” (Today In Literature)
