    I finished Libra earlier, thought it was great. The final section with Oswald's mother talking to a judge spliced with scenes from Oswald's funeral hit pretty hard.

    I've read some George V Higgins. Mark E Smith was a fan. I wouldn't bother now but I enjoyed it at the time.

    I really liked DeLillo's description of the Kennedy assassination as "the seven seconds that broke the back of the American century”.

    DeLillo on Dissensus:

    “He'd once told me that the art of getting ahead... was based on learning how to express dissatisfaction in an interesting way. The air was full of rage and complaint. People had no tolerance for your particular hardship unless you knew how to entertain them with it.”
