Libra is a 1988 novel by Don DeLillo that describes the life of Lee Harvey Oswald and his participation in a fictional CIA conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. The novel blends historical fact with fictional supposition.

Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. Friday, November 22, 1963. 12.30 PM.

Shots ring out. A president dies. And a nation is plunged into psychosis.

Don DeLillo's extraordinary Libra is a brilliant reimagining of the events and people surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Concentrating on the lives of Lee Harvey Oswald, some rogue former spooks unhappy with Kennedy's presidency, and Nicholas Branch, a CIA archivist, trying to make sense of or draw inferences from the mass of information after the assassination, Libra presents an unapologetic & provocative picture of America in the second half of the last century.

"New to Don Delillo I can say for certainty that his visionary take on JFK killing in his book: "Libra" was a view of a dysfunctional suspected killer that has rarely been used. His writing style is peppered with idioms. Easily read. Brilliant!!" - Google Review.
