Hearts in Atlantis is King at the very top of his form. His ability to turn an everyday sitation into a tale of horror is again in evidence. My favourite, the title story, "Hearts in Atlantis", is a hugely entertainig story of a university student facing the first real test of his young life, an addiction to a card game, the girl of his dreams and the Vietnam war and protest aginst it. From the dark and disturbing "Low Men In Yellow Coats" to the deeply moving "Heavenly Shades Of Night Are Falling" this is a truly brilliant book.
