Show Notes:

In a dystopian, alternate America 100 boys gather to participate in the national pastime: a contest called The Long Walk. Join Arnie as he reviews and analyzes this, the first full novel written by Stephen King.

King's first novel wasn't Carrie, it was The Long Walk written while the author was a college freshman.  It tells of a dystopian, alternate America in which the national pastime isn't Baseball, it's a contest of stamina and will--The Long Walk.  King's story of one of these Walks, and walker Raymond Garraty, wouldn't be published for over a decade, until it was released in 1979 as the second novel by King's pen name "Richard Bachman."  

In this episode of Books & Nachos, Arnie reviews and analyzes this early work by the bestselling author.  Join him now in this review of the second Bachman Book!
