I never could understand how one 23 year old loser could successfully assassinate President Kennedy. I always believed the Warren Commission was a farce, a government cover-up. Mailer did a tremendous job researching Oswald's life in Russia, and made him seem like a real human being. The FBI knew all about him, so how was he able to carry out such an abominable crime. Oswald's life is depicted in all its' unhappy squalor. I highly recommend this book.

There's nothing to wonder about. Mailer can research Oswald inside and out and it still stands that he did not shoot JFK. Oswald said it himself, from the first hour in jail that he was "a patsy". Oh, he was there for the purpose, or so he thought. When he fled the Book Depository Building, he wasn't fleeing from the police. Read The Zapruder Film. The entire assassination was captured on film. The fatal shot DID come from the fence behind grassy knoll. The film proves it. Along with dozens of witnesses whose testimony never made it to the Warren Commission, which did not want to hear it. After all, their agenda was an open & shut case. The FBI & CIA, with a little help from LBJ, had the job done. And they got away with it. All except the poor fool, Oswald.
