It amounts to a detailed biography of Lee Harvey Oswald, the presumed assassin of President John F. Kennedy. The book includes an exhaustive examination of his movements in the years, & particularly in the months, leading up to Kennedys death on November 22, 1963 & Oswalds own death two days later. Knitted into the story of Oswalds life are Mailers suppositions on his state of mind & motivations. The Oswald that Mailer depicts is a single-minded, vain individual convinced of his own destiny & importance who suffers a series of defeats & frustrations, & kills the President in a desperate search for achievement.--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oswald%2...
