Contraportada:

It was February 1963 when Ruth Hyde Paine, a Quaker housewife in suburban Dallas, first met a young man named Lee Harvey Oswald and his Russian wife, Marina. Over the nine months that followed, Ruth offered shelter and assistance to the couple. She even found Oswald the job that put him in the Texas School Book Depository from which, on November 22, 1963, he fired the rifle he'd kept hidden in Mrs. Paine's home. Mrs. Paine's Garage is the story of this devout, openhearted woman and the role she inadvertently played in the tragedy of Dealey Plaza. It is also the story of how Ruth Paine weathered a whirlwind of suspicion and betrayal and refused to let her connection to that November calamity destroy her life. Thomas Mallon has fashioned an account of generosity and secrets--tragic might-have-beens and eerie coincidences--that unfolds with a gripping inevitability.
"In his fine historical novels, {Mallon} has often approached the past from a sideways angle, and here views the events in Dallas from {Mrs.} Paine's perspective, which gives them an unexpected freshness."-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"Out of the darkness of an iconic American tragedy, Mallon finds an overlooked but bright figure for us to remember."-SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
THOMAS MA LLON' S books include the novels Henry and Clara, Two Moons, Dewey Defeats Truman, and Aurora 7, as well as a collection of essays, In Fact. His work has appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, the American Scholar, and GQ. He lives in Washington, D.C.

Críticas:

"One of the best nonfiction works of recent years... a delight."

"A trenchant and offbeat examination of how history happens."

"[Mallon] here views the events in Dallas from Mrs. Paine''s perspective, which gives them an unexpected freshness."

"Fresh and unexpected. Out of the darkness of an iconic American tragedy, Mallon finds an overlooked but bright figure."

"A fascinating, carefully researched account of what [Mallon] calls ''the collision of innocent intentions and unforeseen enormities.''"

"[Mrs. Paine''s Garage] is entirely unlike any other book about the assassination. It reads like a good detective novel."

"Mallon succeeds admirably, not only portraying Paine in depth and with sympathy, but managing to make her goodness genuinely interesting."
