Quick Overview

This work looks at the life of Lee Harvey Oswald and attempts to answer the question "who was Oswald?". It is the result of six months spent in Minsk where Norman Mailer traced the two and a half years Oswald spent in the USSR.


This work looks at the life of harvey Lee Oswald. In 1959 he defected to the Soviet Union and was sent to Minsk, where he was kept under constant KGB surveillance on the suspicion that he might be a CIA agent. In 1993 Norman Mailer spent six months in Minsk retracing Oswald's two and a half years in the USSR, interviewing Oswald's former friends and sweethearts. He obtained exclusive interviews with KGB officers and access to KGB surveillance reports. Mailer also provides an account of Oswald's disastrous childhood and of the events leading from his return to the US in 1961 and his death in Dallas in 1963.
