Kingcast 2.13: Confinement and isolation part 2

3581398184_ea3fc1f51b_zIn Part 2 of my thoughts about the role of isolation and confinement, I take a slightly deeper dive into a few of King’s works that center on isolation and confinement: Gerald’s Game, Misery, and The Long Walk.

These three works, perhaps more than anything else in the King canon, use isolation — mostly physical, but really psychological and spiritual — as the mechanism of character development and to drive the action.
