A Face in the Crowd
The writing team that delivered the bestselling Faithful takes the readers to the ballpark again, and to a world beyond.
Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. His adopted Florida baseball team, the Rays, are going strong.
Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone he knows from decades past, someone who shouldn't be at the ballgame, shouldn't even be on the planet.
And so begins a parade of people from Evers's past, people he has wronged, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate.
Until one day, he sees someone even closer to home . . .
A FACE IN THE CROWD is a beautifully written story about grief, loneliness and revenge.

A Face in the Crowd was written by Stephen King and Stewart O'Nan. Dean Evers is a widower who sits alone and watches baseball, then notices familiar faces in the crowd. Faces of people who should be dead. A great collaboration that was quick and fun to read. What can I say? It's Stephen King! Read full review

Maybe it's because I don't understand baseball (I'm Italian after all) but this book doesn't impress me much. The story itself is a nice one, but all this baseball stuff... no, better read something else from King Read full review
