With unprecedented scope and consummate skill, Norman Mailer unfolds a rich and riveting epic of an American spy. Harry Hubbard is the son and godson of CIA legends. His journey to learn the secrets of his society - and his own past - takes him through the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the "momentous catastrophe" of the Kennedy assassination. All the while, Hubbard is haunted by women who were loved by both his godfather and President Kennedy. Featuring a tapestry of unforgettable characters both real and imagined, Harlot's Ghost is a panoramic achievement in the tradition of Tolstoy, Melville, and Balzac, a triumph of Mailer's literary prowess.

This long book is boring, but I'm still suffering through it a second time, mainly to learn of the US intel community's PR and media control operations.
I trust Mailer's mind to tell the truth on US intel history, and this book most interested me for the moments describing the intel community's inner scramble when Oswald was pegged as JFK's assassin, US intel persons knowing Oswald's being used by US intel in various ops, had their internal fits, and how the PR media persons in US intel were in their mad scramble how to respond.
That the US intel community had (and likely must still have) their connections to US media, to guide and influence the history telling of various gone wrong ops, or ops that went on a bad course of their own, is the best part of this book.
