Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Jackie, Ethel, Joan - Women of Camelot, comes an engrossing and revealing portrait of the next generation of Kennedys - now with a new chapter.

For more than half a century, Americans have been captivated by the Kennedys - their joy and heartbreak, tragedy and triumph, the dark side and the remarkable achievements. In this ambitious and sweeping account, J. Randy Taraborrelli continues the family chronicle begun with his bestselling Jackie, Ethel, Joan: Women of Camelot and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the years "after Camelot." He describes the challenges Bobby's children faced as they grew into adulthood; Eunice and Sargent Shriver's remarkable philanthropic work; the sudden death of JFK JR; and the stoicism and grace of his sister Caroline. He also brings into clear focus the complex and intriguing story of Ted Kennedy and shows how he influenced the sensibilities of the next generation and challenged them to uphold the Kennedy name. Based on extensive research, including hundreds of exclusive interviews, After Camelot captures the wealth, glamour, and fortitude for which the Kennedys are so well known. With this book, Taraborrelli takes readers on an epic journey as he unfolds the ongoing saga of the nation's most famous -- and controversial -- family.

Questions for the author

The book was a very interesting read. There were many stories that I never heard about and the book had many resources. My issue is that the author writes as if he was there on many occasions. Also, many of the stories were so vivid it’d make you wonder whether the author embellished the stories for entertainment value or to fill in the blanks. Nonetheless, the book was really good.

Epic

I had all of the familiar facts about the Kennedy family prior to reading this book but nothing could prepare me for the entire story. There were times I felt excitement, for example when JFK won the election. You could feel how much his family loved him and how much the whole ordeal meant to the country. There were also times I felt incredible sadness which is to be expected given all they have been through. By the time I got to Jackie’s passing I was bawling. John Jrs story was heartbreaking to say the least. I have a newfound respect for Ethel Kennedy. I am not very religious and I admired the families strong faith even in the darkest of times. There are a lot of life lessons within this book to be learned but the one I came away with strongest was life puts you through unspeakable heartache and the only way to get through it is by your faith and love for family. Good read for anyone with even a mild interest in the family. I had to exhale once I was done.
