On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? Stephen Kingï¿½s heart-stoppingly dramatic new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassinationï¿½a thousand page tour de force. Following his massively successful novel Under the Dome, King sweeps readers back in time to another momentï¿½a real life momentï¿½when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces readers to a character who has the power to change the course of history. Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the studentsï¿½a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunningï¿½s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer.
Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk. Not much later, Jakeï¿½s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insaneï¿½and insanely possibleï¿½mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jakeï¿½s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jakeï¿½s lifeï¿½a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time. A tribute to a simpler era and a devastating exercise in escalating suspense, 11/22/63 is Stephen King at his epic best.
