Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi: A Book Review Aug 14 Graphic Novels are an ever-evolving art form that continues to delight and surprise their readers.
Three shots ring out. Life can turn on a dime—or stumble into the extraordinary, as it does for Jake Epping, a high school English teacher in a Maine town.
Jake is blown away…but an even more bizarre secret comes to light when Jake"s friend Al, owner of the local diner, enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession—to prevent the Kennedy assassination.
By stepping through a portal in the diner"s storeroom, and into the era of Ike and Elvis, of big American cars, sock hops, and cigarette smoke…Finding himself in warmhearted Jodie, Texas, Jake begins a new life.
But all turns in the road lead to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald. The course of history is about to be rewritten…and become heart-stoppingly suspenseful.
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.
Mark Lawson, Guardian The pages of It takes great brazenness to go anywhere near this subject matter. But it takes great skill to make this story even remotely credible. King makes it all look easy, which is surely his book"s fanciest trick.

King, though, writes books that are ever longer and more demanding. I can"t wait to see what he will tackle next.

|Language & Lit||He is the author of the epic Emaneska Seriesand a new western fantasy series, the Scarlet Star Trilogy. While we authors are no stranger to self-publishing or writing, when it comes to art, particularly graphic novels, we can feel a little bit like a fish out of water.|
Beneath the reassuring glow of King"s portrait of an earlier, simpler time moves a darker and less comfortable vision, a glimpse of the terrifying machinery that moves below the surface of human history, and which stands as a stark, chilling rejoinder to the fantasies of escape embodied in so many time travel stories.
The Weekend Australia Mammoth but entertaining, this is part sci-fi, part suspense and part travelogue of a long-ago America. Who Weekly Stephen King is a remarkable and wonderful storyteller who never loosens his grip on the reader throughout the page book.
