Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy is due out next week. The work comes from a series of interviews made by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., and were strictly sealed after they were conducted. Based on what literary critics are saying… Camelot continues to capture our imagination.
Among the noted revelations:
* President Kennedy and his Attorney General (brother Robert F. Kennedy) openly shared their contempt over the premise of Lyndon Johnson’s succession as our next Chief Executive in 1968. A game plan was presumably in the works by the brothers as early as 1962 to nix this strategy set forth by the Democratic National Committee.
* Jackie initially believed the 1963 assassination of JFK was orchestrated by LBJ. She changed her opinion after Johnson wrote a series of notes to her expressing his own personal sorrow and his concern for the former First Lady.
* Jackie and Bobby carried on a fling which led to an affair initiated by their mutual grief caused by the tragic events that occurred on November 22, 1963. It continued until his own demise in 1968. By all accounts, RFK’s wife (Ethel) was aware of the situation.
The book is set to be published by Hyperion Books on September 14th. An Introduction in this work has been written by daughter Caroline Kennedy, who gave her personal permission to release the candid chat for use in this book. The publication of the historic interviews coincides with the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s Inauguration.
