Blank on Blank – Stephen King

Blank on Blank is a Brooklyn-based studio, in collaboration with PBS, that uses animated short films to present lost or forgotten interviews. “Famous names, lost interviews” is their tagline.

People ask horror writer Stephen King about his childhood a lot. Sorry to disappoint, but he doesnâ’t remember anything too unusual happening in his early life. In this 1989 interview, aired on the Public Radio Book Show, talks about the nature of childhood, saying, “We think in a different way as children. we tend to think around corners instead of in straight lines.” He also reflects on the origin of fear, implying that our love of horror and science fiction grow out of an impending sense of our own mortality. “Mentally we grasp it,” he says of death, “emotionally we canâ’t quite grasp it.”
