August, 1963. In three short months, President John F. Kennedy will be assassinated while riding in a motorcade in Dallas. There are people who know this in advance: several members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, high-ranking officials in the CIA and Secret Service, F.B.I. Director J. Edgar Hoover, a couple of Texas oilmen –– and a 17-year-old accidental time traveler in Marin County, California. News From A Parallel World is the true story of what happened in America in the 1960s, in a world right next door. If it was going to be Oswald in a 6th floor window, it would be easy: borrow a car, get to Dallas, and tackle him before he can squeeze the trigger. But it wasn’t going to be Oswald. It was going to be three professionals, a triangulation of fire. Nothing he could think of would save the President. Maybe, though, if he could enlist a few friends, two other murders might be prevented. Maybe the lives of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., could be saved a few years down the road. And if that could be done, history would be profoundly changed. Two things might stop them. The other shootings weren’t going to be by lone nuts, either. And there was this question: even if free will was real, could anything change history already lived? This is the real story of the March on Washington, the Beatles landing in America, Clay beating Liston, the Tonkin Gulf and the Viet Nam war, the Free Speech Movement, Bob Dylan, LBJ and J. Edgar Hoover. It’s the Watts riots, the Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park; it’s hippies and radicals, Monterey Pop, the Watts riots, Malcolm X, the Black Panthers, LSD, Marshall McLuhan, Janis Joplin, and Abbie Hoffman. News From A Parallel World takes us from San Francisco to Monterey, to New York and Washington and, finally, to Memphis and L.A., in an America on the brink and a world shaken by revolutionary change.
