The world according to Marguerite Oswald, One of the strangest and most compelling books ever written on the subject of Jahn F. Kennedy's assassination. With the possible exception of Don DeLillo's Libra, it is the only memorable work of literature to emerge from this crowded genre. Years before Oliver Stone's JFK or even Mark Lane's Rush to Judgment, Marguirite Oswald carried on a one-woman crusade to denounce the Warren Commission and proclaim the innocence of her son, Lee harvey oswald, In 1965, Jean Stafford spent three days with Mrs. Oswald in her Fort Worth home. In this book Stafford uses all of her gifts as a novelist to explore the mind of this unforgettable woman, With her sly, manipulative banter and blatant attempts to commercialize her infamous status as a mother in history, Oswald is as darly funny and unsettling as any character imagined by Flannery O'Connor. This is a startling book, a small classic by an American master sometimes compared to In Cold Blood.
