I am the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and FRIES.
I don’t know about you all, but sometimes I really just want fast food, something greasy and “bad” for me, but delicious all the same. Sometimes I crave comfort food, like a big bowl of macaroni and cheese, something I am absolutely positive is going to be good.
I have a handful of go-to authors – King is one of them – who are either always “delicious” or who rarely, if ever, disappoint. Sure, I eat salads and try new healthy meals, just like I read “literature” and try debut authors. But every once in awhile, I think it’s essential to treat yourself to a gooey, fudgie brownie – or whatever your vice/comfort/dessert of choice. Add an ice cold glass of milk and a King novel. Indulge.
