Dallas, 11/22/63: Three shots ring out.
President John F. Kennedy is dead.
Life can turn on a dime-or stumble into the extraordinary, as it
does for Jake Epping, a high school English teacher in a Maine
town. While grading essays by his GED students, Jake reads a
gruesome, enthralling piece penned by janitor Harry Dunning: fifty
years ago, Harry somehow survived his father's sledgehammer
slaughter of his entire family. Jake is blown away . . . but an
even more bizarre secret comes to light when Jake's friend Al,
owner of the local diner, enlists Jake to take over the mission
that has become his obsession-to prevent the Kennedy assassination.
How? By stepping through a portal in the diner's storeroom, and
into the era of Ike and Elvis, of big American cars, sock hops, and
cigarette smoke. . . . Finding himself in warmhearted Jodie, Texas,
Jake begins a new life. But all turns in the road lead to a
troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald. The course of history is
about to be rewritten . . . and become heart-stoppingly
In Stephen King's "most ambitious and accomplished" (NPR) novel,
time travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying.
