Stephen King completes “Under the Dome” after 25 years

This is an article from  The Guardian that discusses King’s upcoming epic novel “Under the Dome”.  Twenty five years in the making and more than 1,000 pages long (as long as “It”), it will be published this November. King began writing this novel in the 1980s. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Characters in the cast of more than 100 include Dale Barbara, a Gulf veteran and now a cook, the town’s newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital and three children. They’re up against an evil politician, Big Jim Rennie – who’s desperate to hold onto power and will stop at nothing, even murder – and his son, who in classic King style, “is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry”. Meanwhile, time under the Dome is running out.

“Since it’s over a thousand pages long, I sure hope people like it,” Stephen King said earlier this year in his regular column for Entertainment Weekly.
