9780061131233: Symptoms of Withdrawal: A Memoir of Snapshots and Redemption

The firstborn child of famed Rat Pack actor Peter Lawford and Patricia Kennedy, sister to John F. Kennedy, Christopher Kennedy Lawford grew up with presidents, senators, and movie stars as close relatives and personal friends. When he was a toddler, Marilyn Monroe taught him how to dance the twist. He recalls being awakened late at night to hear his uncle Jack announce his candidacy for president. His early life was marked by the traumatic assassinations of two beloved uncles—and during his teen years, he succumbed to the tragic allure of the 1970s drug scene.

Symptoms of Withdrawal is Lawford's unflinchingly honest portrayal of his life as a Kennedy—a journey overflowing with hilarious insider anecdotes, heartbreaking accounts of his addictions to narcotics as well as to celebrity, and, ultimately, the redemption he found by asserting his own independence.

About the Author:

Christopher Kennedy Lawford is the New York Times bestselling author of Symptoms of Withdrawal. He has worked extensively in Hollywood as an actor, lawyer, executive, and producer. He has three children and lives in Marina Del Rey, California.

From AudioFile:

Christopher Lawford's narration is painful, poignant, and inspiring. He pulls no punches as he tells his terrifying story. The son of Rat Pack movie star Peter Lawford and JFK's sister Patricia, he grew up with Washington politicos and Hollywood royalty. The highs of the privileged life are submerged in family tragedies, and Lawford's descent into alcohol and drug addiction. Even as he reveals Kennedy anecdotes, there are dark undertones. Though there's no self-pity in his voice as he relates fighting his way out of the hell he was in, the listener can't help but feel his pain and rejoice in his redemption.
