Download this…21,000 words novella

June 19, 2007

For those of you who continue to doubt the power of the printed word (read this again P R I N T E D, as in ink on paper) try to read Stephen King’s “The Gingerbread Girl” in its entire twenty-one thousand words on any screen but that of the crystal clear July’s Esquire screen of ink on paper. A historic milestone for Esquire since this novella represents the longest piece of fiction ever published in Esquire. And if the novella is not worth your $3.99 cover price, take a look at the exclusive pictures of Angelina Jolie in the same issue. To put it in Esquire’s own cover words, “Some Angie, A Little King… What Else Does A Man Need For Summer?” Esquire has “come a long way baby” since David Granger took the helm as editor-in-chief ten years ago.



  1. I want to continue reading The Gingerbread Girl, but the August issues are on the shelves.

  2. I called Hearst Magazines to order the July 2007 back issue but they’re sold out. I saw one on eBay but it’s already past $10 in bids. Any idea if this story is available for download somewhere? I’ll gladly pay for it.
