Lee Harvey Oswald's assassination of President Kennedy in 1963 remains one of the most horrifying-and hotly debated-crimes in American history. Because Oswald had briefly defected to the Soviet Union, some historians allege he was a Soviet stooge. But as Peter Savodnik shows in 'The Interloper', Oswald's time in the U.S.S.R. reveals a stranger, more chilling story. Oswald fled to the Soviet Union looking for a utopia, but quickly became just as dissatisfied with his adopted country as he had been with the United States. When he returned to America, he was more adrift and alienated than ever-and was soon groping for an outlet for his desperate rage.Drawing on groundbreaking research, including interviews with Oswald's friends and acquaintances, 'The Interloper' brilliantly evokes the shattered psyche not just of Oswald himself, but also of the era he so tragically defined.
