Only on audio! A brand-new, never-before-published Stephen King short story unavailable in any other format! Alden McCausland and his mother are what they call "accident rich"; thanks to an unexpected life-insurance policy payout and a winning Big Maine Millions scratcher, Alden and his Ma are able to spend their summers down by Lake Abenaki, idly drinking their days away in a three-room cabin with an old dock and a lick of a beach. Across the lake, they can see what "real rich" looks like: the Massimo family's Twelve Pines Camp, the big white mansion with guest house and tennis court that Alden's Ma says is paid for by "ill-gotten gains" courtesy of Massimo Construction. When Alden's holiday-weekend sparklers and firecrackers set off what over the next few years comes to be known as the Fourth of July Arms Race, he learns how far he and the Massimos will go to win an annual neighborly rivalry-one that lands Alden in the Castle County jail. Read by beloved Down East storyteller Tim Sample-praised by Stephen King for his "wit and talent and good-heartedness"- Drunken Fireworks makes for explosive audio listening.



  • The guy narrating went way too overboard with his performance, it was too much for me to handle. It completely ruined the whole story and I couldn't even finish listening to it. Needless to say, I'll be returning this audiobook.
  • I was pretty let down by 'Drunken Fireworks'. The narrator was just okay, nothing special. And the story itself was so lacking in substance, with characters that were forgettable and an ending that felt abrupt and unsatisfying. I have to admit, though, I was relieved when it finally came to an end. It made me nostalgic for Stephen King's pre-accident writing.
  • I'm a fan of Stephen King, but I found this story to be quite lengthy and lacking in strength. Additionally, the narrator, while staying true to the character, was challenging to comprehend.
  • This audiobook, 'Drunken Fireworks', was a total snooze-fest. I found myself drifting off and even taking a bathroom break just to stay awake. Honestly, I can't say much more about it because there wasn't much substance to the story. It felt like a complete waste of over an hour of my life. I couldn't help but doze off multiple times.
