Jian Ghomeshi, host of CBC’s “Q” radio talk show, aired an exclusive interview with master storyteller Stephen King Thursday evening. King discussed his soon-to-be-released novel “11/22/63,” which explores what our world would be like if Jack Kennedy had not been assassinated on that eponymous date. Ghomeshi is a top-notch interviewer and King offered insightful answers in the lively discussion. Even if you’re not a Stephen King fan, you have probably been aware of his huge contribution to the genres of horror and psychological thriller and caught one or two of the films based on his works.
Early reviews of the book are calling it a winner. NPR’s Alan Cheuse gave the new book a hearty “thumbs up” in his recent review.
