Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

The anti-hero of Libra is Lee Harvey Oswald, who is as hauntingly real in the book as he was elusive in reality. Here he is, as large and as small as his life - joining the marines, pouring over Marxist texts, defecting to Russia, taking a potshot at General Edwin Walker, handing out leaflets for the Fair Play Cuba committee, imagining himself as an agent of history. That is until "history" presents itself in the form of two disgruntled CIA operatives, who decide that an unsuccessful attempt on JFK`s life, one that could be linked to Fidel Castro, is the only way to put Cuba back in geopolitical play - and that Oswald would be the perfect instrument for their plans. (1998)


Review:
Now with a new introduction by the author—"a thriller of the most profound sort"
Chicago Tribune

" Libra operates at a dizzyingly high level of intensity throughout; it’s that true fictional rarity—a novel of admirable depth and relevance that’s also a terrific page-turner."
USA Today

"DeLillo’s novel is like a stop-motion frame of the crossfire, a still picture of an awful moment.... [His] prose has a quality of demented lyricism."
The New Yorker
