Lisey's Story, Stephen King's most personal and powerful novel, explores wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love. Known for his great eye for detail, continuity, and inside references, King's books have been translated into 33 languages and published in more than 35 countries. With more than 300 million copies of his novels published, King was the 2003 recipient of The National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. The author, who resides in Bangor, Maine, fills his books with references to the darker, more fearful side of American history and culture, accompanied by his knack for folksy, informal narration.

In this special event, recorded live at Symphony Space in New York City, King is interviewed by Irish novelist John Connolly. Maria Tucci reads a selection from Lisey's Story. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 5/5/2011

    " This is one of my favourite King books and it is about old people. - Yes Old people. And a horror writer who was scared of his own imagination. And when you read the book you would be scared too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jules | 5/3/2011

    " It's the first SK book I love after a long time of thirst in this respect.

    Note to self: I need to read it in original, not the Romanian (otherwise quite delightful) translation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steff | 4/28/2011

    " Brilliant. The story is compelling, the language is beautiful, the emotional engagement is strong, and the storytelling is ingenious. A must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich | 4/26/2011

    " This is not a typical Stephen King, not as macabe, but still a good read. This story transports you into the mind of a widow as she reflects back on her marrage at the same time she is on a life changing quest set and encouraged by her late husband. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roberto | 4/26/2011

    " The best I've read by Stephen King so far. Feels close to the skin. Presents a suggestion of intimacy and an intriguing look at the creative process. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Krys | 4/24/2011

    " As a Stephen King fan I am disappointed in this book. Stephen King is suppose to write horror not romance. As Comic Book Guy on the Simpsons would say, Worst book ever! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 4/14/2011

    " This one is one of my least favorite King books...still liked it, however, once I got into it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/11/2011

    " This book didn't seem to have any new ideas in it. It was just a rehash of Rose Madder and Bag of Bones. Not on the top of my "King's must reads" list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 4/11/2011

    " I read this about the same time as Bridge of Sighs, and as wonderful a writer as Richard Russo is, Stephen King had me from "Hello", as he always does, even when he's on his long windy and questionable road to the Dark Tower. So I haven't finished Bridge of Sighs yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 4/9/2011

    " This was a really good read. Only Stephen King can take a well-written story about grief and loss, and be both touching and morbid :) It was long, but a neat journey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/6/2011

    " I liked this book. I read it, and have listened to it on audiobook as well. The relationship of the main character with her husband was so tender that it drew me into the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacie | 3/31/2011

    " My least favorite Stephen King book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda | 3/30/2011

    " I actually didn't finish this book. I got about 60 - 70 pages in and gave up. "
