Interview with Stephen King

NPR recently did an interview with Stephen King and his youngest son, Owen King, on their new book, Sleeping Beauties, a 700-page thriller where a sleeping sickness affects every woman, leaving men to run the world. Talk about a horror story! ;)

— Stephen King

Listen below to hear more about what inspired Stephen and Owen King to write their latest novel, the co-writing process, and how they balanced two distinct voices in one cohesive story.
