The Constant Reader Podcast – Episode Twenty-Two – The Speed Queen w/Stewart O’Nan

Check out the latest episode of The Constant Reader Podcast, where Stewart is interviewed by the host Richard Sheppard!

Episode Description

Stewart O’Nan’s new book, Ocean State, has recently been released in the United States to wide acclaim. However, today we are going to look at one of his earlier books – 2001’s The Speed Queen. In a change from our usual format, this isn’t a book or an adaptation of a Stephen King text, but instead a novel that uses Stephen King as a character. King is the (unnamed but highly guessable) recipient of the last testament of Marjorie Standiford, mother, daughter, drug addict, sex addict, speed freak and apparent killer. On death row, who else but Stephen King would listen to her side of the love triangle that put her on a collision course with capital punishment?
