Amazing 1995 book review of Norman Mailer's "Oswald's Tale, An American Mystery"


Recommended Posts

A rather incoherent review, even if interestingly bizarre. D. M. Thomas

wrote a terrible novel about the assassination, FLYING IN TO LOVE (1992).

THE WHITE HOTEL, the novel that made his reputation, is an awful

load of pointless pretension too.

Joseph, Can't comment on D.M. Thomas as I rarely read fiction, but at least his review concludes with,  'And still the case remains open'.

Actually I inherited a copy of 'Oswald's Tale' from Ian Griggs' collection, signed by Mailer, I've read worse books in this canon.
