Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero

Matthews, Chris Author

Image Not Available

“What was he like?”

Jack Kennedy said the reason people read biography is to answer that basic question. What was he like, this man whose own wife called him “that elusive, unforgettable man?” In this New York Times bestselling biography, Chris Matthews answers that question with the verve of a novelist. We see this most beloved president in the company of friends. We see and feel him close-up, having fun and giving off that restlessness of his. We watch him navigate his life from privileged, rebellious youth to gutsy American president. We witness his bravery in war and selfless rescue of his PT boat crew. We watch JFK as a young politician learning to play hardball and watch him grow into the leader who averts a nuclear war. Matthews’s extraordinary biography is based on personal interviews with those closest to JFK, oral histories by top political aide Kenneth O’Donnell and others, documents from his years as a student at Choate, and notes from Jacqueline Kennedy’s first interview after Dallas. As Matthews writes: “I found a fighting prince never free of pain, never far from trouble, never accepting the world he found, never wanting to be his father’s son. He was a far greater hero than he ever wished us to know.”

Book Description Simon & Schuster. 1 Paperback(s), 2011. soft. Book Condition: New. "What was he like?" Jack Kennedy said that the reason people read biography is to answer that basic question. What was he like, this man whose own wife called him "that elusive, unforgettable man?" Television pundit and political journalist Chris Matthews answers that question with verve in this superb portrait of second son John F. Kennedy, who grew up in the shadow of his older brother, but whose character was truly founded by the histories he read in numerous sickbeds. "History made him, this lonely, sick boy. His mother never loved him," said Jacqueline Kennedy in the week after her husband's assassination. "History made Jack, this little boy reading history."If history at its best is about telling stories that bring the past to life, then Chris Matthews is a master storyteller, for this fascinating portrait brings Jack Kennedy more vividly to life than any recent work."—Doris Kearns Goodwin 481.
