Random House, Inc.
El 22 de noviembre de 1963, tres disparos resonaron en Dallas. Murió el presidente Kennedy, y el mundo cambió. ¿Qué harías tú si pudieras impedirlo?

En esta brillante novela, Stephen King acompaña al lector en un viaje maravilloso al pasado y en un intento de cambiar lo que pasó, ofreciéndonos un impecable retrato social, político y cultural del final de los años cincuenta y principios de los sesenta: un mundo marcado por enormes coches, Elvis Presley y el constante humo de cigarrillo.

Todo empieza con Jake Epping, un profesor de inglés que se gana un sueldo extra con clases nocturnas para adultos. Un día pide a sus estudiantes que escriban sobre un acontecimiento que les haya cambiado la vida, y una de esas redacciones le impacta profundamente: la historia de una noche de hace cincuenta años cuando el padre de su alumno Harry Dunning volvió a casa para matar a su familia. Poco después su amigo Al, propietario de un restaurante en su barrio, le descubre un increíble secreto: en el almacén del restaurante hay una puerta que conduce al pasado. Y Al pide a Jake que le ayude con una misión que le obsesiona: impedir el asesinato del Presidente John F. Kennedy. Y así comienza la nueva vida de Jake en un mundo muy diferente. En él, Jake se enamorará mientras sigue el rastro de Lee Harvey Oswald hacia ese crucial momento histórico. Un viaje al pasado nunca ha sido tan creíble, ni tan terrorífico.

Baker & Taylor
Receiving a horrific essay from a GED student with a traumatic past, high-school English teacher Jake Epping is enlisted by a friend to travel back in time to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a mission for which he must befriend troubled loner Lee Harvey Oswald.
