In ON WRITING, Stephen King advises novelists not to determine the ending before they begin writing. Apparently the same rules apply for nonfiction. King and co-author Stewart O'Nan, started FAITHFUL, a record of the 2004 Red Sox season, unaware that it would end with one of the greatest comebacks in sports history. The result is a book-length conversation between two great gothic novelists about a mys-terious baseball curse. O'Nan (whose voice is narrated by Adam Grupper) and King (voiced by Ron McLarty) give baseball fans a lot of bang for their buck--nearly 16 hours of stats and play-by-play--but there's a little something for everyone here, including a rundown on the origins of the Standells' hit "Dirty Water" and a glimpse into King's TV habits. Would you believe the master of suspense loves "All My Children"? (And speaking of Stewart O'Nan, when is somebody going to release A Prayer for the Dying on audio?)
