  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "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."
