“Your name is John Coffey.”
“Yes, sir, boss, like the drink, only not spelled the same way.”

Another of Kings experiments, which of course doesn’t mean that the story takes second place. Published in six parts, a month between, these books revive the time-honoured art of the serial story. The tale, taking place mostly on death row some decades ago, contains equal amounts of wonder and horror – all accentuated by the extreme setting of the tale. Now available in one volume.
