about this book

"Explaining Kennedy's assassination through the flaws in Oswald's character has been attempted before, notably by Gerald Posner in Case Closed and Don DeLillo in Libra. Neither handled Oswald with the kind of dexterity and literary imagination that Mailer here supplies in great force.... Oswald's Tale weaves a story not only about Oswald or Kennedy's death but about the culture surrounding the assassination, one that remains replete with miscomprehensions, unraveled threads and lack of resolution: All of which makes Oswald's Tale more true-to-life than any fact-driven treatise could hope to be."--The Philadelphia Inquirer
