It appears that the next release from Stephen King is going to venture into the category of “EVENT RELEASE”. It’s not to often that you see cover art for a book leaked but that is exactly what we’ve got going on here.
Behold the dusk jacket art for 11/22/63 which doesn’t hit stores till Nov. 8th.
A time travel tale this one asks that immortal question, What if?
Here’s the official synopsis:
Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the studentsâ€”a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunningâ€™s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.
Not much later, Jakeâ€™s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insaneâ€”and insanely possibleâ€”mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jakeâ€™s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jakeâ€™s lifeâ€”a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.
Liking the artwork a lot, liking the story idea a lot, can’t wait.
