After Camelot
In this groundbreaking biography of the Kennedys, Taraborrelli brings this complex and dynamic family to life as he recounts the years following the murders of Jack and Bobby. He describes the challenges Bobby's children faced as they grew into adulthood; Eunice and Sargent Shriver's remarkable philanthropic work; the emotional turmoil Jackie faced after JFK's assassination and the complexities of her eventual marriage to Aristotle Onassis; 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
