  • "Romantisering van een mogelijke toedracht van de moord op president Kennedy in 1963, waarbij moordenaar Oswald een pion van de CIA blijkt."
  • "Une kaléidoscopique histoire de conspiration à plusieurs niveaux où s'organise une singulière manipulation en vue de préparer un attentat contre un homme politique. Précisons, outre cette description laconique, qu'il s'agit d'une autre version de l'assassinat de Kennedy en quelque sorte préméditée par Lee Oswald, né sous le signe de la Balance, d'où le titre. Captivant."
  • "这一年, 他常常乘地铁去这个城市的边缘地段, 车轮在路轨上要滚两百英里. 他喜欢站在第一节车厢的前端, 双手贴在窗玻璃上. . . . . . ."
  • "Terwijl diverse agenten en burgers plannen bedenken om Cuba weer onder de invloed van Amerika te brengen, ontstaat het idee om president Kennedy onschadelijk te maken, iets waarvoor Lee Harvey Oswald de perfecte pion is."

  • "A fictional speculation of the events leading up to the assassination of John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald."
  • "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 unapologeticly provocative picture of America in the second half of the last century."
  • "Detrás del asesinato de John F. Kennedy se esconde una compleja conspiración internacional cuya cabeza visible es Lee Harvey Oswald, pero detrás de Oswald hay un niño problemático con un atormentado mundo interior, un joven cuyos ideales entran constantemente en conflicto con la realidad que los niega.Libra es una especulación asombrosamente veraz, literariamente impecable y escalofriantemente convincente de los sucesos que desencadenaron el asesinato de Kennedy y de la atm©đsfera general de aquellos tormentosos a©łos en que el derrumbamiento del gran sue©ło americano abri©đ la puerta al secretismo gubernamental. De esta ©♭poca surgen los elementos conspirativos que caracterizan casi toda la obra de este l©ðcido int©♭rprete de nuestro tiempo. Figuras reales mezcladas con personajes de ficci©đn con verdadero virtuosismo e intrigas casi inveros©Ưmiles en una de las obras mayores de Don DeLillo, una novela que fascina desde la primera p©Łgina. Escritor obsesivo con un proyecto literario de consciente continuidad, DeLillo es una de las m©Łs importantes voces narrativas de Estados Unidos."
  • "In this powerful, eerily convincing fictional speculation on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Don DeLillo chronicles Lee Harvey Oswald's odyssey from troubled teenager to a man of precarious stability who imagines himself an agent of history. When "history" presents itself in the form of two disgruntled CIA operatives who decide that an unsuccessful attempt on the life of the president will galvanize the nation against communism, the scales are irrevocably tipped. A gripping, masterful blend of fact and fiction, alive with meticulously portrayed characters both real and created, Libra is a grave, haunting, and brilliant examination of an event that has become an indelible part of the American psyche."@en
  • "The scheme of two disgruntled CIA agents to stage an unsuccessful attempt on the life of President Kennedy and link it to Cuba backfires when the erratic Lee Harvey Oswald goes too far."
