School Library Journal Review

Gr 7-10‘This biography gives insight into the life of one of the world's most successful writers. The Keyishians describe his childhood poverty and abandonment by his father, the support of his loving mother, and the influences on his work of such literary giants as C.S. Lewis, H.G. Wells, and Bram Stoker. They discuss his career, including the many years of rejection notices and poverty before the success of his novel, Carrie. The authors offer analysis of King's works throughout their very readable text. Black-and-white photos add to this interesting view of a prolific, popular storyteller.‘Judy R.
