Oswald's Tale

By Mailer, Norman




"MARVELOUS . . . BREATHTAKING."--The New York Times Book Review"MAILER SHINES . . . 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. But 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. . . . Vintage Mailer."--The Philadelphia Inquirer"FASCINATING . . . A MASTER STORYTELLER . . . Mailer gives us our clearest, deepest view of Oswald yet. . . . Inside three pages you are utterly absorbed."--Detroit Free Press"MAILER AT HIS BEST . . . LIVELY AND CONVINCING . . . EXTREMELY LUCID . . . Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance. . . . [He] has found a way to make the dry bones of KGB tapes and his own interviews stand up and perform. . . . From the American master conjurer of dark and swirling purpose, a moving reflection."--Robert Stone The New York Review of Books"THIS IS A NARRATIVE OF TREMENDOUS ENERGY AND PANACHE; THE AUTHOR AT THE TOP OF HIS FORM."--Christopher Hitchens Financial Times"Mailer has written some pretty crazy books in his time, but this isn't one of them. Like its predecessor, Harlot's Ghost, it is the performance of an author relishing the force and reach of his own acuity."--Martin Amis The London Sunday TimesFrom the Trade Paperback edition.

In 'Oswald's Tale:An American Mystery',Mailer reconstructs the life of this ambitious if doom-laden young man,giving a full account for the first time not only of the Minsk years,a hitherto uncharted period in Oswald's life,but also of Oswald's disastrous childhood,his years in the Marine Corps,and the events leading from his return to the United States in 1961 to his death in Dallas in 1963.The portrait of Oswald that emerges will greatly surprise readers who have thought of Oswald as a hapless loner; socially awkward,inarticulate,and an unremarkable loser. A non-fiction masterpiece,a work of meticulous research and reportage,but the reporter in this case is America's most distinguished novelist,who comes to the task only with a sober respect for the facts,but with a novelist's power to bring these facts to vibrant life.
