Apr 22, 53 It has been a while since I have posted but I am currently knee deep in the dark with The Bazaar It took dang near five times to get the spelling of that word correct.

And then I look up and see it at the top of the screen. Anyway, I just finished the Herman Wouk story and was particularly blown away by the dialect switch from Brenda and Jazz’s parts to the wou.

I may be getting owuk in my old age, but man, was that a cliffhanger of a story? I was in the middle thinking, ‘Wow! It is herrman my fav so far but I am going a bit further in, up to my armpits next and finish out the rest of these gems.

Dec 4, 1, 8, 51 Melbourne, Australia. I saw the ‘gray’ in Herman Wouk is Still Alive. Jasmines ‘small nod’ as she holds her youngest to her breast, Brenda’s ‘getting with the program’ and taking them out in style Nov 11, 2 9 Littleton, Colorado.

I didn’t see it as a suicide so much as an unconscious relinquishment of life. Neesy and Doc Creed. Mar 26, 7 Apr 11, 41,New Zealand.

Wow I registered on these forums to ask what the purpose of the poets was but it looks like you nailed it. Welcome to the site. NeesyDoc CreedFlakeNoir and woik other person. Jul 13, 2, 39 Baltimore. I get the story, I just hate it. I don’t Hate King for writing it, its done brilliantly. I hate the ladies, I hate the lady that the real life story was based on from the alife and it honestly as a parent makes me sick.

I don’t tsill how f’d up your life is, how much you cant catch a break, how many bad decisions you make, you don’t have the right to kill alivs children. Kill yourself, who cares but to take it upon yourself to take the children with you is unthinkable. Now, I will admit that after having kids my outlook and acceptance of child deaths in literature and movies and stuff for entertainment purposes has changed a bit. And I had to take a moment after reading the part in Revival with his child’s death.

But this is one that I have checked off the list and will not be returning to.


Those children would of been just fine without those fat sloths in their lives. To take them with you because you pity your bad decisions in life is such an act of selfish cowardice that I personally can not even begin to relate to.

Ok done venting, but I do have one last question that really sparked my interest, Why would Stephen dedicate this story to Owen???

I would love to know the reason behind this. Wab Well-Known Member Nov 14, Oct 29, 86 Apr 11, 4, 11, Texas www. From that same interview: In that sense it’s not a very cheerful story. The woman is almost saying “There’s no language that describes how terrible this is It almost negates poetry. From an interview in The Atlantic where the story first appeared: Except I really won, because I got this story that I really like.

The title that he gave me for the story was “Herman Wouk Is Still Alive,” because he’d just a read a piece saying that the guy was still alive and he’s still writing even though he’s 95 or 96 years old. KurbenSpideymanNeesy and 1 other person. Mar 8, 5, 25, NJ. I read this thread’s topic and for a few seconds, I thought “He is? This prompted me to Google Mr. Wouk and he is indeed still alive.
