Lauren Beckham Falcone has a short piece on Justin Cronin, who penned The Passage, which is not only 766 pages and highly praised by Stephen King, but was the most anticipated novel of the summer until its release this week.
“One rule as writer is very simple – write the book that asks to be written,” said Cronin, who has never read any of The Twilight Saga. “Some people have questioned why I’ve gone from writing quiet books about domestic life to writing a horror/fantasy/coming-of-age/epic road novel. The answer is simple. It was the one that asked to be written.”
