Feel like we’re in a Stephen King novel? He says, “Sorry”

As the coronavirus crisis continues on another week, do you feel like you’re in a Stephen King novel? Well, the writer says he’s “sorry” about that. King’s 1978 novel, The Stand, centers on a fictional pandemic that takes a heavy toll on the global population. “I keep having people say, ‘Gee, it’s like we’re living in a Stephen King story. And my only response to that is, ‘I’m sorry.'” King went on to tell NPR, “There was never any question that in our society, where travel is a staple of daily life, that sooner or later, there was going to be a virus that was going to communicate to the public at large.”
