Review:

''A work of love, even passion . . . Mr. Manchester's final telling of the death of Kennedy is most moving.'' --Gore Vidal

''Mr. Manchester matches the dislocation and identification which almost everyone experienced during the tragic events of that long weekend. Inescapably.'' --Kirkus Reviews
