Read full description of the books 22-11-1963:22 november 1963: de moord op president J. F. Kennedy. Er zijn veel mensen die geloven dat de wereld er nu veel beter aan toe zou zijn als die moord voorkomen had kunnen worden. Jake Epping krijgt onverwacht de kans om precies dat te doen: er bevindt zich een doorgang naar 1958 in zijn favoriete hamburgertent. Jake aarzelt niet, neemt een nieuwe identiteit aan en reist naar het verleden. Hij ontdekt dat het toen lekkerder rook, er minder vliegtuigstrepen in de lucht waren, het leven er langzamer en vriendelijker verliep... maar ook dat het verleden een weerbarstig en gevaarlijk karakter heeft. Het laat zich niet graag veranderen. De belangrijkste troef die het verleden in handen heeft is de liefde, die Jake destijds in het heden ontglipte, maar die hem des te sterker in het verleden verankert. Lukt het Jake uiteindelijk toch om Kennedy's leven te redden? En wat voor onverwachte, huiveringwekkende consequenties heeft dat in het heden?
Read information about the authorStephen Edwin King was born the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. After his father left them when Stephen was two, he and his older brother, David, were raised by his mother. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father's family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut. When Stephen was eleven, his mother brought her children back to Durham, Maine, for good. Her parents, Guy and Nellie Pillsbury, had become incapacitated with old age, and Ruth King was persuaded by her sisters to take over the physical care of them. Other family members provided a small house in Durham and financial support. After Stephen's grandparents passed away, Mrs. King found work in the kitchens of Pineland, a nearby residential facility for the mentally challenged.
Stephen attended the grammar school in Durham and Lisbon Falls High School, graduating in 1966. From his sophomore year at the University of Maine at Orono, he wrote a weekly column for the school newspaper, THE MAINE CAMPUS. He was also active in student politics, serving as a member of the Student Senate. He came to support the anti-war movement on the Orono campus, arriving at his stance from a conservative view that the war in Vietnam was unconstitutional. He graduated in 1970, with a B.A. in English and qualified to teach on the high school level. A draft board examination immediately post-graduation found him 4-F on grounds of high blood pressure, limited vision, flat feet, and punctured eardrums.
He met Tabitha Spruce in the stacks of the Fogler Library at the University, where they both worked as students; they married in January of 1971. As Stephen was unable to find placement as a teacher immediately, the Kings lived on his earnings as a laborer at an industrial laundry, and her student loan and savings, with an occasional boost from a short story sale to men's magazines.
Stephen made his first professional short story sale ("The Glass Floor") to Startling Mystery Stories in 1967. Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men's magazines. Many were gathered into the Night Shift collection or appeared in other anthologies.
In the fall of 1971, Stephen began teaching English at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels.
