A Face In the Crowd - by Stephen King and Stewart O'Nan - Like an old episode of the Twilight Zone
A new collaboration from Stephen King and Stewart O'Nan who worked together chronicling the Red Sox improbable 2004 season in Faithful.
Where Faithful was non-fiction, this new novella, A Face In the Crowd, is definitely pure fiction.
Ever since the death of his wife, Dean Evers spends a lot of time watching Tampa Bay baseball on TV and lately he's been seeing a number of familiar faces behind home-plate. Problem is, the faces are of people who should be dead.
A quick read and an enjoyable story. Kind of like watching an old episode of the original Twilight Zone TV series.
A Face In the Crowd is available as both an audio-book and an e-book from most of the major retailers. A must read for the Constant Reader as King refers to his fans. Even if you're not among the King faithful, there's a pretty good chance you'll enjoy this one.
