By The Book: Book Club October 2022 - Fairy Tale

Written by Stephen King during the pandemic, Fairy Tale tells the story of 17-year-old Charlie Reade, who befriends a lonely, elderly man, Mr. Bowditch, and his lovely, elderly dog, Radar - and the lengths Charlie will go to help them, and the other world that he's introduced to on his quest. In this book club, two Constant Readers join Charlie and Radar on their adventure and discuss whether we enjoyed it. And then on Footnotes, we unpack a recent interview with Alan Moore in which he looks at his own legacy and discusses the impact comic books have had on society (spoiler alert: he's not too happy).
