11.22.63 by Stephen King (May 2015)

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed.

If you had the chance to change history, would you?

Would the consequences be worth it?

Jake Epping is an English teacher from Lisbon Falls who discovers an extraordinary secret: the storeroom in the local diner is a portal to 1958.  Leaving behind a world of iPods and mobile phones for a world of Elvis, big American cars and Lindy Hopping, Jake sets out on an insane - and insanely possible - mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

It is a haunting world 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.

Just a teenager when JFK died, Stephen King has absorbed the social, political and popular culture of his American generation as thoroughly and imaginatively as any other writer.  11.22.63 is his first mainstream time-travel novel, which takes you back to an eternally fascinating moment in history.
