Danse Macabre: Lord of the Flies
Play • 2 hr 17 min

Danse Macabre is a recurring feature of The Losers' Club that journeys through all the books that influenced Stephen King. (You know, as he listed in 1981's Danse Macabre. Ahem, hence the name of this series.) What started last October with Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House continues with 1954's Lord of the Flies by Nobel Prize-winning British author William Golding. Join Dan Caffrey, Jenn Adams, Rachel Reeves, and Mel Kassel as they discuss Golding's influence on King's writing, dark children's narratives, and the politics of masculinity and violence. Fun fact: The Castle Rock name originated here.
