What It Was Like to Publish Stephen King's BAG OF BONES 20 Years Ago


It goes without saying that a lot has changed in the 20 years since Scribner first published Stephen King’s BAG OF BONES in September 1998. At the time, I was certainly familiar with King’s reputation and his years of bestseller dominance, but I had only read a few of his works. BAG OF BONES was a wakeup call. Where had I been all my life when I could have been reading more Stephen King, more books as bracing and intelligent as this one about class in America, and with prose as crystalline as the Maine lake on which the story was set?
