When it first appeared, one volume per month, Stephen King's "The Green Mile" was an unprecedented publishing triumph: all six volumes ended up on the "New York Times" bestseller list -- simultaneously -- and delighted millions of fans the world over.
Welcome to Cold Mountain Penitentiary, home to the Depression-worn men of E Block. Convicted killers all, each awaits his turn to walk the Green Mile, keeping a date with "Old Sparky," Cold Mountain's electric chair. Prison guard Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working the Mile. But he's never seen anyone like John Coffey, a man with the body of a giant and the mind of a child, condemned for a crime terrifying in its violence and shocking in its depravity. In this place of ultimate retribution, Edgecombe is about to discover the terrible, wondrous truth about Coffey, a truth that will challenge his most cherished beliefs...and yours.
In the Old South of the 1930s, a gentle giant of a man is sentenced to death for the murder and rape of two little girls. The fact that he is black and the girls are white is inflammatory enough, but the situation is further complicated by his near muteness and gift for healing. This novel is being published serially in six installments: THE TWO DEAD GIRLS, THE MOUSE ON THE MILE, COFFEY'S HANDS, THE BAD DEATH OF EDUARD DELACROIX, NIGHT JOURNEY, and COFFEY ON THE MILES.
