Contraportada:

The forgotten Kennedy is forgotten no longer. Rosemary is a rare thing, a book aboutthe Kennedys that has something new to say. Laurence Leamer, author ofThe Kennedy Women
Kate Clifford Larson delivers an engrossing portrait of Rose and Joe Kennedy s tragic misunderstanding of their oldest daughter s capabilities, and of how her fate changed the Kennedy family forever.And yet it is Rosemary herself who shines from the pages of this profoundly revealing family story. Marya Hornbacher, author ofMadness: A Bipolar Life

In her engaging and compassionate Rosemary, Kate Larson illuminates the poignant story of a resolute girl falling behind in a glamorous and competitive family.Rosemary s own story comes alive against the broader and often shocking background of twentieth-century attitudes toward the intellectually disabled, and sheds fascinating light on how the characters of Rose Kennedy, Joe Kennedy, and Rosemary s famous siblings were indelibly shaped by her determined yet tragic life. Will Swift, author ofThe Kennedys Amidst the Gathering Storm
"

Nota de la solapa:

They were the most prominent American family ofthe twentieth century. The daughter they secreted away made all the difference.

Joe and Rose Kennedy s strikingly beautiful daughter Rosemary attended exclusive schools, was presented as a debutante to the queen of England, and traveled the world with her high-spirited sisters. Yet Rosemary was intellectually disabled, a secret fiercely guarded by her powerful and glamorous family.

Major new sources Rose Kennedy s diaries and correspondence, letters from Rosemary s teachers and doctors, and exclusive family interviews bring Rosemary alive as a girl adored but left far behind by her competitive siblings. Kate Larson reveals both the sensitive care Rose and Joe gave to Rosemary and then as the family s standing reached an apex the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly difficult in her early twenties. Finally, Larson illuminates Joe s decision to have Rosemary lobotomized at age twenty-three and the family s complicity in keeping the secret.

Rosemary delivers a profoundly moving coda: JFK visited Rosemary for the first time while campaigning in the Midwest; she had been living isolated in a Wisconsin institution for ten years. Only then did the siblings understand what had happened to Rosemary and bring her home for loving family visits. It was a reckoning that inspired them to direct attention to the plight of the disabled, transforming the lives of millions.

Descripción Houghton Mifflin. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Estado de conservación: New. Joe and Rose Kennedy's strikingly beautiful daughter Rosemary attended exclusive schools, was presented as a debutante to the queen of England, and traveled the world with her high-spirited sisters, but also suffered from a low IQ, a secret fiercely guarded by her powerful family. Kate Clifford Larson—also the biographer of Harriet Tubman and Mary Surratt—portrays young Rosemary as a sweet, lively girl adored by her siblings, and reveals the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements that the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly difficult in her early 20s. Ultimately, Joe had Rosemary lobotomized at 23, making the family complicit in keeping the secret. Only years later did the Kennedy siblings begin to understand what had happened to Rosemary—inspiring them, Larson posits, to champion people with mental and developmental disabilities. "A biography that chronicles her life with fresh details. By making Rosemary the central character, [Larson] has produced a valuable account of a mental health tragedy and an influential family's belated efforts to make amends."—NYTBR 302. Nº de ref. de la librería 71359
