    1. I had a gift card to a bookstore going out of business- with 1.00 and change left on it. This was priced at 99 cents. A pathetic story and sad rendering of life of the supposed killer of President Kennedy. Seemed more an attention grabbing story of the mother. You can read in between the lines if you wish.Thin book, worth reading in a day. I recommend seeing the film Parkland to follow this up.


    2. This is a strange little book. Basically it consists of Jean Stafford – in her declining years, after her well-regarded short stories and novels had been written – hanging out with Marguerite Oswald in her home in Fort Worth, asking questions about her son, Lee Harvey Oswald. Nothing is really revealed here beyond the fact that Mrs. Oswald is a delusional woman full of grandiose ideas about herself, her son, and the world at large. It could be said that she is ground zero of JFK conspiracy n [...]


    3. Stafford provides Marguerite Oswald with the space to open up. Oswald's voice is incredible: paranoid, defensive, expansive, maternal and sharp. It's an excellent portrait Stafford provides, a mother wounded, and alone, seeking for a companion in telling a story she feels has been overlooked. Stafford's own high prose voice comes in brief intervals and contrasts Marguerite's. The question seems to be who is playing whom and needs the other.


    4. This little book set in motion the idea for my senior history thesis -- how LHO's mother and her mental capacity affected her ability to raise children and how it affected LHO and his mental stability.



    5. This is fabulous -- a book about Oswald's mother, based on interviews with the author. Clearly source material for "Libra" (which is to take nothing away from it).
