9780671501914: All Too Human: The Love Story of Jack and Jackie Kennedy

Of all the great love stories that have had an impact on our times - Eleanor and Franklin, Winston and Clementine, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor - none has remained as shrouded in secrecy and misunderstanding as that of John and Jacqueline Kennedy. Here, for the first time, their story is told the way it was always meant to be told - with such depth and amazing detail that it sheds a whole new light on the relationship at the heart of Camelot. For many years, Edward Klein, the former editor in chief of The New York Times Magazine, was a friend of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Drawing on his personal knowledge, major research libraries, private documents and correspondence, FBI files, and more than three hundred interviews, All Too Human is an original and unprecedented work on the Kennedys - a book replete with fresh facts and information, as well as a dramatically new interpretation of the Kennedy marriage.

Review:

Edward Klein shows that, despite their glamorous public lives, the Kennedys were as human as the rest of us. Through details on the couple's most intimate moments, including Jackie's defloration in a Paris elevator, and her amusing, albeit catty, disposition (kept under wraps because of her political standing), the ivory tower of their existence seems less out of reach. With chapter titles such as "Indiscreet," "Love Lies Bleeding," and "Pleasure First" the book reads a bit like a romance novel, but with a biting touch of reality.

From the Publisher:

The private bonds that united John and Jacqueline Kennedy hove always remained shrouded in secrecy and misunderstanding. Now Edward Klein, a former editor of The New York Times Magazine -- and a friend of Jackie -- recreates the Kennedy marriage in unprecedented detail, shedding new light on the relationship at the heart of Camelot. From their first meeting in 1951 to the President's assassination in 1963, this is a rich, personal portrait of the couple, and answers the questions millions hove posed:

  • Was Jack in love with Jackie? And was she in love with him?
  • Did Jack's father Joseph Kennedy, arrange his son's marriage?
  • Did events on their honeymoon shape the future course of their marriage?
  • Was Jackie aware of Jack's compulsive womanizing and how did she react?
  • Did Jackie have affairs of her own?
  • Did the enormous strains of the presidency -- and the tragic death of their infant son Patrick -- draw Jack and Jackie closer together?

    Impeccably researched end brimming with fresh information, ALL TOO HUMAN reveals the private husband end wife behind the grand image -- while presenting their haunting love story for the first time in all its most intimate facets.
