About the book
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.

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.


Read Review   Want to write a review?

'The pedal is indeed to the metal.'

'Tight and energetic from start to finish.'

'Staggeringly addictive.'

'King's most purely entertaining novel in years . . . utterly compelling.'

'King's gift of storytelling is unrivalled. His ferocious imagination is unlimited.'
'America's greatest living novelist.'
'Fine stories to take with us into the night.'
'Take King's hand and allow him to lead you into a past so vibrant and complete that you can almost taste it. But hold on tight, the Master of Horror has now become the Master of Time . . . Utterly enthralling, emotional and magical'
'A wonderful book: page-turningly exciting, witty, wise, melancholic. But also utterly human, profoundly decent'
'The pages of 11.22.63 fly by, filled with immediacy, pathos and suspense. It takes great brazenness to go anywhere near this subject matter. But it takes great skill to make this story even remotely credible. Mr. King makes it all look easy, which is surely his book's fanciest trick.'
'The reader feels the benefit of 40 years of narrative craftsmanship and reflection on his nation's history. Going backwards proves to be another step forward for the most remarkable storyteller in modern American literature.'
