All Grown Up Now by Kenneth D King is a tale of retail, relocation, revenge, re-invention, reckless behavior, really good clothes, indiscretion, infidelity, domestic violence, and a kidnapping!
All Grown Up Now is the story of a life seen through the framework of a friendship. Written like a novel, the story follows two main characters, Ken and Mark, on a fast-paced romp through the 1980’s and early 90’s.
What started originally as a book has become a weekly podcast, read by King himself. The book is still available on Amazon and supports the podcast wonderfully. Asked why he chose to serialise the book in podcast form, Kenneth’s response was:
It was actually a suggestion from a friend. I was casting about for ways to give the novel more visibility, and thought back to Armistead Maupin. He serialized all of his novels in the San Francisco newspapers. The only time I bought the paper, was on Thursdays when he was releasing another installment. Since people don’t seem to be reading as much, the podcast form sounded like a good idea. So, every Thursday (in homage to Mr. Maupin) I release another episode.
