Haunted Heart : Life and Times of Stephen King Hardcover

Lisa Rogak

 One of the most prolific and popular authors of the last thirty years, Stephen King has become part of pop culture history. In this unauthorized biography, Lisa Rogak reveals the troubled background and life-long fears that inspire one of the twentieth century’s most influential authors. Abandoned by his father, King’s mother raised him in rural Maine in a house without plumbing. Though he excelled in college, he graduated already married and a father. Afterwards he wrote ceaselessly at night, churning out stories at an incredible rate, while sweating out his days at an industrial laundry. When success came, it happened in a flash.

Soon his substance abuse risked destroying his career and, worse, his life. But he survived, kept his family intact, and continued writing at a level of originality few authors could hope to achieve. Haunted Heart chronicles King’s Horatio Alger-esque story and shows the character of a man who, despite his dark and disturbing work, has become revered by his countless fans as an All-American voice more akin to Mark Twain than H.P. Lovecraft.
