Jacqueline Kennedy

From  Elaine Pasquali
Title:  Jacqueline Kennedy
Author:  Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.
Mr. Schlesinger had 7 conversations with Jacqueline Kennedy in 1964, four months after the President’s assasination. The book is simply the transcribed tapes with footnoted  annotations. Family and political events are discussed. Caroline Kennedy’s forward and Michael Beschiloss’ introduction were interesting and very informative.  The book comes with audio tapes of the interview, but the tapes are poor quality.  I would read an interview and then listen to a tape so I could get the gestalt of the conversation. Overall, an interesting book but a dry read.
