About this Item

? King at his epic best: Following his most recent, massively successful novel Under the Dome, King takes readers back in time to another moment - a real-life moment - when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces a character who has the power to undo it. ? First mainstream travel novel: Think mega viewing figures of Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Back to the Future and the mega-selling Audrey Niffenegger`s The Time Traveler`s Wife. This is Stephen King`s first foray into time travel (outside the Dark Tower series) and it is a knock-out. ? The announcement of the book`s acquisition resulted in a burst of interest and activity in the press. ? Each of Stephen King`s new hardcovers has gone to the very top of the Christmas bestseller lists as November proves an excellent month for publication (UNDER THE DOME was the best-selling King hardcover this century) - and, of course, 22nd November was the day JFK was assassinated. ? The Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme to write and direct major film. ? First mainstream travel novel: Think mega viewing figures of Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Back to the Future and the mega-selling Audrey Niffenegger`s The Time Traveler`s Wife.

WHAT IF you could go back in time and change the course of history? WHAT IF the watershed moment you could change was the JFK assassination? 11/22/63, the date that Kennedy was shot - unless . . . King takes his protagonist Jake Epping, a high school English teacher from Lisbon Falls, Maine, 2011, on a fascinating journey back to 1958 - from a world of mobile phones and iPods to a new world of Elvis and JFK, of Plymouth Fury cars and Lindy Hopping, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake`s life - a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time. With extraordinary imaginative power, King weaves the social, political and popular culture of his baby-boom American generation into a devastating exercise in escalating suspense.
