31 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 252 libraries worldwide
ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963, THREE SHOTS RANG OUT IN DALLAS, PRESIDENT KENNEDY DIED, AND THE WORLD CHANGED. WHAT IF YOU COULD CHANGE IT BACK' In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King'who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer'takes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it. It begins with Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching GED classes. He asks his students to write about an event that changed their lives, and one essay blows him away'a gruesome, harrowing story about the night more than fifty years ago when Harry Dunning's father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Reading the essay is a watershed moment for Jake, his life'like Harry's, like America's in 1963'turning on a dime. Not much later his friend Al, who owns the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to the past, a particular day in 1958. And Al enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession'to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake's new life as George Amberson, in a different world of Ike and JFK and Elvis, of big American cars and sock hops and cigarette smoke everywhere. From the dank little city of Derry, Maine (where there's Dunning business to conduct), to the warmhearted small town of Jodie, Texas, where Jake falls dangerously in love, every turn is leading eventually, of course, to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and to Dallas, where the past becomes heart-stoppingly suspenseful, and where history might not be history anymore. Time-travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying

Er kommt Peter, der nun die Notizbücher zu Geld machen will, auf die Spur und macht Jagd auf ihn. Kann Bill Hodges, den wir als Detective a. D. aus Mr. Mercedes kennen, den Wahnsinnigen stoppen?

La ligne verte : roman by Stephen King( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in French and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Paul Edgecombe, ancien gardien-chef d'un pénitencier dans les années 1930, entreprend d'écrire ses mémoires. Il revient sur l'affaire John Caffey - ce grand Noir au regard absent, condamné à mort pour le viol et le meurtre de deux fillettes - qui défraya la chronique en 1932. La Ligne verte décrit un univers étouffant et brutal, où la défiance est la règle. Personne ne sort indemne de ce bâtiment coupé du monde, où cohabitent une étrange souris apprivoisée par un Cajun pyromane, le sadique Percy Wetmore, et Caffey, prisonnier sans problème. Assez rapidement convaincu de l'innocence de cet homme doté de pouvoirs surnaturels, Paul fera tout pour le sauver de la chaise électrique. Aux frontières du roman noir et du fantastique, ce récit est aussi une brillante réflexion sur la peine de mort. Un livre de Stephen King très différent de ses habituelles incursions dans l'horreur, terriblement efficace et dérangeant. [payot.ch]
