Stephen King thinks his life is as weird as his booksNovember 24th, 2007 - 4:06 pm ICT by admin
New York, Nov 24 (ANI): American author Stephen King believes that his life is as weird as his books.
The Green Mile author, who is currently in New York promoting his new flick “The Mist,” cited his strange encounter with a 95-year-old woman, who was not at all impressed with his work.
“I’m in the supermarket one day with my cart, and there’s this woman, about 95, the New York Post quoted him, as saying.
She says, ‘I know who you are. You write those stories, those awful horror stories . . . I don’t like that. I like uplifting movies like that ‘Shawshank Redemption.
So I said, ‘I wrote that.’ And she said, ‘No, you didn’t.’ And that was it. Talk about surreal. I went to myself, for a minute, ‘It’s not very much like my other stuff. Maybe I didn’t write it!’ he added. (ANI)
