Woolley captures the mood of the city brilliantly.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 21, 2013
Need a "stocking stuffer" for the history enthusiast? Try the JFK 50th Commemorative Edition of "November 22, A Novel" (Brown Books Publishing Group) by respected news journalist Bryan Woolley.
Through a myriad of characters both real and reinvented, Woolley, a former Associated Press correspondent and journalist for the Courier-Journal in Louisville, the Dallas Times Herald, and the Dallas Morning News, offers readers an inside look into the volatile atmosphere of Dallas in 1963 politically, socially, and religiously, resulting in a rich cross section of a city more complex and diverse than many observers have been willing to acknowledge.
Don Graham, J. Frank Dobie Regents Professor of American and English Literature, University of Texas at Austin says, "He describes, in microcosm, how the world changed in the twinkling of an eye and peers into the shifting lives of all the people affected by this shattering event."
Woolley notes, "Although the tragedy at the core of 'November 22' actually occurred, this story is fiction, and most of its characters are figments of the author's imagination. I owe it to the reader to emphasize that while the scenes in which they appear are real, the words they speak are fictitious. I have tried to be accurate in my portrayal of Dallas life at the time."
