According to published reports, a car crashed into the fence surrounding bestselling author Stephen King’s Bangor, Maine home.
Nobody was injured in the accident and King himself was not at home.
As the reports point out, King has had several unfortunate incidents over the years.
It can become quite tiresome to hear these Hollywood celebrities complain about their fame and lack of privacy. But when you see what bestselling authors like King or John Grisham or J.K. Rowling experience, it’s quite an eye opener. As book lovers, we may wish that authors were given a higher place in our pop culture spectrum. But the reality is that even the most famous writer is way down the scale compared to musicians, actors and actresses, and sex tape peddling debutantes. It definitely puts a different perspective on the fame — and the price of it — discussion.
