A gripping, masterful blend of fact and fiction, alive with meticulously portrayed characters both real and created, Librais a grave, haunting, and brilliant examination of an event that has become an indelible part of the American psyche. In this powerful, eerily convincing fictional speculation on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Don DeLillo chronicles Lee Harvey Oswald’s odyssey from a troubled teenager to a man of precarious stability who imagines himself an agent of history. In his new introduction, DeLillo reexamines the evidence surrounding Oswald’s role in the assassination as well as Oswald’s place in popular culture. BACKCOVER: Now with a new introduction by the author—a thriller of the most profound sort” —Chicago Tribune Libraoperates 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
