WHO'S KILLING THE GREAT WRITERS OF AMERICA?
Kaplow, author of the Top Ten BookSense selection Me and Orson Welles (currently in pre-production with Fast Food Nation filmmaker Richard Linklater), aims his satiric pen at best-selling writers Danielle Steel, Sue Grafton, Curtis Sittenfeld, and Tom Clancy. It's up to Stephen King to solve the murder mystery even as he risks becoming the next victim. In an unforgettable finale on Swan's Island off the coast of Maine, King encounters former Enron executive Ken Lay, a terrifying
lizard, and Anne Bancroft. Funny. Irreverent. Fast-paced. Parody at its best. Kaplow's clever spoof will please everyone but its victims.
