Publisher's Summary

In perhaps his most important literary feat, Norman Mailer fashions an unprecedented portrait of one of the great villains - and enigmas - in United States history. Here is Lee Harvey Oswald - his family background, troubled marriage, controversial journey to Russia, and return to an "America [waiting] for him like an angry relative whose eyes glare in the heat." Based on KGB and FBI transcripts, government reports, letters and diaries, and Mailer's own international research, this is an epic account of a man whose cunning, duplicity, and self-invention were both at home in and at odds with the country he forever altered.

The best account I have ever read

Having always been fascinated by the Kennedys, the dreadful JFK assassination has always puzzled me. I have lost count of the amount of books/articles I have read on the subject. This is, however, by far the best account. The meticulous research is incredible. The minutiae of Oswald's life is, I feel, vitally important. The cardboard characters presented by the mainstream media seem to "come alive" in the narrative. It is truly a tragic tale on so many levels. I recommend to any fellow student of the subject. I confidently predict you will not find better - if you do please let me know.
