Stephen King: The Rolling Stone Interview

by Rachel Baker on November 6, 2014

Here’s a great, recent and unusually revealing interview with Stephen King. The timing of the interview cliche – it was published on Halloween – but if you are a fan of Stephen King, its well worth the time to read through it.

Also, remember, his new book, Revival, comes out on November 11.

Since 1974, when Carrie hit shelves, King has sold an estimated 350 million books, and he’s now worth hundreds of millions of dollars. John Grisham and Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James may outsell him these days, but it’s hardly a problem. “He’s not competitive,” says his longtime agent Chuck Verrill. “The only guy he ever cared about was Tom Clancy. They were both at Penguin once, and it was made clear to King that he was seen as the second banana to Clancy. He didn’t like that, but he’s very content where he is right now.”

King hasn’t done many recent in-depth print interviews since a van accident nearly killed him 15 years ago, but he decided to sit down with Rolling Stone to discuss his life and career.
