March 10th, 2018: "Premium Harmony" By Stephen King

Recommended Posts

Please join us for our next Readers' Corner discussion at 8:30 PM (EST) on March 10th, 2018 [1:30 AM (GMT) March 10th for those in other time zones] for a discussion of the short story "Premium Harmony" by Steven King.

This story is not a typical Steven King, scare your pants off or make you nauseous with gruesome tortures or dismemberment.  It is rather a study in the horror of living with a spouse with whom the sparkle and joy of the newlywed couple has long since devolved into acceptance of each others shortcomings.  I think it will be an interesting story to discuss, As many of you know I am not fond of stories that use many words a few better chosen ones would better serve, an offense against my literary sensibilities of which I usually find Steven King guilty.  This tale, being in the form of a short story, manages to be short.  I think you will enjoy it, whether you like Steven King's writing or not.

The story is available on line at:   https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2009/11/09/premium-harmony

As usual we will meet in the #readers_corner chatroom on Koach.com:
