Description

For more than half a century, Americans have been captivated by the Kennedys - their joy and heartbreak, tragedy and triumph, the dark side and the remarkable achievements. In this ambitious and sweeping account, Taraborelli continues the family chronicle begun with his bestselling Jackie, Ethel, Joan and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the years "after Camelot." He describes the challenges Bobby's children faced as they grew into adulthood; Eunice and Sargent Shriver's remarkable philanthropic work; the emotional turmoil Jackie faced after JFK's murder and the complexities of her eventual marriage to Aristotle Onassis; the the sudden death of JFK JR; and the stoicism and grace of his sister Caroline. He also brings into clear focus the complex and intriguing story of Edward "Teddy" and shows how he influenced the sensibilities of the next generation and challenged them to uphold the Kennedy name. Based on extensive research, including hundreds of exclusive interviews, After Camelot captures the wealth, glamour, and fortitude for which the Kennedys are so well known. With this book, J. Randy Taraborrelli takes readers on an epic journey as he unfolds the ongoing saga of the nation's most famous-and controversial-family.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 27, 2012 – Taraborrelli picks up where he left off in Jackie, Ethel, Joan, adding more revelatory portraits of the Kennedys during the past four decades. To document America’s “royal family,” he conducted interviews with family members and their intimates, such people as Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Oleg Cassini, Robert McNamara, Pierre Salinger, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., and numerous confidential sources. He also relied heavily on the 40 years of personal correspondence between Jackie Kennedy and Lady Bird Johnson. There’s a parade of triumphs and tragedies, along with an insider’s view of family dynamics in crises both public and private: financial negotiations before Jackie’s marriage to Onassis; family interference in Pat Kennedy and Peter Lawford’s troubled marriage; Ted Kennedy’s bad behavior at Chappaquiddick, and his support of Caroline’s abortive Senate run to carry on the “family dynasty.” Taraborrelli has a fine flair for turning dry facts into dramatic descriptions so that many oft-told stories take on a new perspective. Meticulous multilayered details breathe life into remarkable recreations of family gatherings throughout this superb “fly on the wall” survey of the Camelot clan. Photos.

Customer Reviews

Enough of the Kennedy's

There isnt anything new on the Kennedy subject. He was really not a good president and his family behaved horribly at times. Wish someone would write a non-biased history of this complicated family.

Dont wadte you money on the same old same old.

After Camelot

Its a little too sentimental and not objective enough to make it interesting or valuable
Pretty much a re-hash of the same old story
Its a perfect beach book where you don't have to think

Mr. Camelot President Kennedy

The great men who have to save the world and better future of mankind were killed by the same ignorant humanity. Sample Jesus, Lincoln, Kennedy …
WITH THE DEATH OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY USA FAIL FOREVER.
