Part of the endurance of Stephen King’s novel IT and the 1990 TV miniseries has to do with “The Losers Club”. It speaks to the bonds of youth, and how surviving the terrors of adolescence is vastly easier when you’ve got a crew watching your back. Part of what gives IT such powerful resonance is than many of us had our own version of The Losers Club, and the luckiest of us still maintain ties with those who had the most profound effects on us during transitions into adulthood.
