JFK ate my hamster. Fiction.

In the wake of the latest pile of papers released about the assassination of JFK, there is an enjoyable round-up of related fiction from The Guardian. To be honest, there are no references to hamster consumption in the entire article, but I wanted an eye-catching headline.

In a similar vein, most of the attempts to write about JFK’s death have had to deal with the “fact” that he was killed by a lone gunman – and everyone knows he it is. This makes weaving fiction about the day quite tricky, but I’m glad that American Tabloid gets a mention because it is such a brilliant read.

Beyond that, we are reminded to seize the opportunity to read the original source code: the Warren Report. It might not be the page turner that James Ellroy delivers but it makes for chilling reading nonetheless.
