Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Stephen King has teamed up again with novelist Stewart O'Nan to write a piece of fiction that merges two of his greatest obsessions: baseball and ghost stories. In A Face in the Crowd, Dean Evers is an old widower who's taken to watching baseball on lonely nights to distract himself from the sudden absence of his wife, and the scene of her stroke replaying in his mind. These evenings are like solitary confinement for Evers, the worst of punishments in his eyes: "a beating had to stop, but a thought could go on and on." The games are supposed to be a diversion from this mania, but they prove to be just the opposite. In an eerie twist, Evers is forced to face just what he's been trying to avoid in the wake of his wife's death: his past. As Evers watches the game each night, a rotating cast of characters appears in the seat behind home plate--people Evers recognizes, people he thought he'd never see again. A Face in the Crowd is a modern-day A Christmas Carol, and Dean Evers is the perfect Ebenezer Scrooge, sour yet increasingly disturbed as he's taken on a tour of his shames and regrets. This tour begins in the plain light of realism, but ends in the surreal, taking Evers to the last place he--or the reader--expects. –-Simone Gorrindo

His novel 11/22/63—a Hulu original television series event—was named a top ten book of 2011 by The New York Times Book Review and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller. His epic works The Dark Tower and It are the basis for major motion pictures. He is the recipient of the 2018 PEN America Literary Service Award, the 2014 National Medal of Arts, and the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.

Stewart O’Nan’s award-winning fiction includes Snow Angels, A Prayer for the Dying, Last Night at the Lobster, and Emily, Alone. His most recent novel, The Odds, was hailed by The Boston Globe as “a gorgeous fable, a stunning meditation and a hope-filled Valentine.” Granta named him one of America’s Best Young Novelists. He was born and raised and lives in Pittsburgh.
