In this book, Norman Mailer asks not "Who Killed Kennedy" but "Who Was Oswald" for only by asking the latter can we hope to answer the first. In 1959 Lee Harvey Oswald defected to the Soviet Union and was sent to Minsk, where he lived for two and one-half years and remained under constant KGB surveillance on suspicion of being a CIA agent. In 1993, Mailer spent six months in Russia where he interviewed Oswald's former friends and sweethearts and obtained exclusive interviews with kGB officers assigned to monitor Oswald. He was also given exclusive access to the KGB files on Oswald including transcripts of conversations overheard in the apartment that he shared with his Russian wife, Marina. This is a nonfiction masterpiece, a work of meticulous research and reportage. Included is an appendix of 39 pages in which a few passages of the Warren Commission papers are included, a glossary of names, acknowledgments, bibliography and endnotes. Price clipped. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
