Summary
  • Set in the 1950's, this epic, Warholian novel presents a brilliant and wholly original take on the years leading up to the Kennedy assassination. Where were you when you first heard President Kennedy had been shot? This is a question most people can answer, even if the answer is "I wasn't born yet." In this epic novel, David Bowman makes the strong case that the shooting on November 22nd, 1963 was the major, defining turning point that catapulted the world into an entirely new stratosphere. It was the second big bang
  • Post-war United States, and a new "normal" is being developed. We see Lucille Ball's bizarre interrogation by the House UnAmerican Activities Committee and Jackie Onassis' moonlight cruise with Frank Sinatra. We follow Norman Mailer and Arthur Miller as they attempt to get quickie divorces together at a loophole resort in Nevada. Howard Hunt snoops around South America with the newly founded CIA, and young Jimi Hendrix tries his luck as a clean cut army recruit. As events lead up to the November, 22th 1963 assassination of President Kennedy, the country is at the beginning of the end. -- adapted from jacket
