    Isn’t “The Dome” written by Stephen King? Not Millhauser.

      Hi Tracy,

      Thanks for commenting. Yes, I’m familiar with “The Dome” by Stephen King but this piece was indeed written by Steven Millhauser. It was originally published in the American Scholar Vol. 75, No. 4, AUTUMN 2006. Here’s a link for more info, http://theamericanscholar.org/the-dome/#.Uo0SK6W9rY0, or you can also check the Selected Shorts site.
