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.

A gripping, masterful blend of fact and fiction, alive with meticulously portrayed characters both real and created, Libra is a grave, haunting, and brilliant examination of an event that has become an indelible part of the American psyche. Download and start listening now!

    " Wow. I thought White Noise had turned me off to DeLillo forever, and he was the most pretentious author I had ever read. Libra was amazing, and I was halfway through it before I realized it was written years before Oliver Stone's JFK. The events leading up to the first Kennedy assassination are omnisciently recreated, and even though Don claims its all fiction I truly believe that the CIA had Kennedy killed, intentionally or no. Its good to feel envious of a writer's talent again. "

    " If he could contine to come up with ways to surprise her, she would have a reason to love him forever. "

    " This is Don DeLillo's take on the JFK assasination. It really makes you think about how complex historical events are and the futility of trying to know what really happened. "
