Stephen King, Misery in 3LE

Dear Students, that’s IT….we are going to start studying Stephen King’s Misery…Today we went a bit over his life and I hope you’ve retained some of the info I tried to convey to you!

As I told you, Stephen King’s life is a bit of an American dream come true: a poor teacher who always dreamt of becoming a famous writer and who actually made it! I forgot to mention his terrible accident who left him incapacitated for two years and still has some strong impact on his present life as he needs to get away from Maine’s cold winters.

I also forgot to mention that he tried to live in England and felt miserable there so he came back home to Maine after two months.

The rest of the story was told to you on Thursday, Sept. 15th at the CEDOC where we’ll meet regularly now when we deal with literature.
