Writing About the Kennedys

There are dozens of books about the Kennedys: their politics, their women, their scandals, the family curse. What else could there possibly be to say about them that hasn't already been said? And how, amid the sea of great reads (and some maybe not-so-great ones) could one more book stand a chance?

O! Jackie is such a book.

It's a fictional, behind the scenes account of Jackie Kennedy's life and what it was like for her to be married to a cheating husband, a husband who also happened to become president. How does a woman endure, survive that kind of constant humiliation? My theory tampers with the notion that Jackie had her sweet revenge.

Enjoy the Kennedys as you knew them, read about them, and remember them from history books. And get to know their secrets, too. 

O! Jackie
