Mrs. King, I read One on One when I was younger. I am quite an avid reader and have read all of your husband's books. However, One on One is a superior novel; my favorite of all time and better than anything your husband (whose works I love especially the Long Walk) ever wrote. It is my all time favorite novel.

I read the collaboration Candles Burning that Tabitha King wrote with Michael McDowell. It was very graphic, sick and disturbing. The main character Calley wasn't very likeable. I really didn't enjoy the book at all. I only finished it because I hate leaving things undone. I'm sure a lot of other people will disagree with me, especially some of Steve's hardcore fans. Whatever. To each his own. These days I am reading Nora Roberts and Patricia Cornwell.

It pains me to write this. I read Small World about two years ago, and found myself feeling disappointed.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with your style, very elegant. It just felt like the story didn't suit your style of writing.
Recently I've been book hunting, and I saw your new book peeking out at me from the shelf (right beside your husbands books, warms my heart). I'm going to take a chance on it, although I was hoping you would've written something new all your own. Well maybe soon.
Your style suggests to me that you're well aquainted with the classics (I know, I could be completely wrong, sorry). Have you thought about changing genre's?

Is there another book, that picks up where Pearl left off. In other words, do we find out who fathered her child (David or Reuben)?? I know Reuben married Pearl (as the wedding band on her finger indicates prior to India's funeral). Please let me know.
I'm dying here...
