In this powerful, eerily convincing fictional speculation on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Don DeLillo chronicles Lee Harvey Oswald's odyssey from troubled teenager to a man of precarious stability who imagines himself an agent of history. When "history" presents itself in the form of two disgruntled CIA operatives who decide that an unsuccessful attempt on the life of the president will galvanize the nation against communism, the scales are irrevocably tipped.

Product Description:

A fictional speculation on the assassination of John F Kennedy. It chronicles Lee Harvey Oswald's odyssey from troubled teenager to a man of precarious stability who imagines himself an agent of history.

Review:

An unparalleled trip into the heart of America ( Observer)

Wonderful ( Guardian)

Even with all the swirling contradictory data, this you feel is America, and the news starts here ( Sunday Times)

Monumental, DeLillo at his chilling best. Concentrates on the inner life of the people who shaped the Kennedy assassination. He constructs the very human faces behind a monstrous event, creating fiction which trespasses on reality ( Time Out)

An audacious blend of fiction and fact ( The Times)
