KIRKUS REVIEW

However sincere, Well-intentioned and non-apologetic, it is difficult to see what purpose is served by this resume of Lee Oswald's life which amplifies to a certain extent while clarifying really nothing at all... or explaining why a truculent boy became a violent killer. Robert Oswald had not seen his brother for a year when the fatal shot was fired...reviews their childhood together (both found their mother overbearingly difficult)...Lee's truancy at thirteen which was the decisive moment... his stint in the Marines, defection to Russia, marriage and its quarrelsome continuation. He is sure that his brother acted independently and questions only some of the ballistic findings of the Warren Commission... Regretful after the fact addenda.
