The Horror and The Legacy of Steven King

Ross Douthat reviews the work and legacy of Steven King.

King’s body of work, is a vision of contemporary America as a spiritual realm that is out of joint and up for grabs, thick with competing forces and watched over by an Almighty whose goals are inscrutable, whose demands are peremptory, and whose methods are sometimes cruel … a landscape where time is a thief and death is a mystery and where the hope of a resurrection is weaker than the fear of the dark.
