   Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy is due out next week. The work is based on a series of interviews made by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. in 1964, and strictly sealed after they were conducted. Here’s what literary critics are saying… Our modern dayCamelot continues to capture our imagination.

   Among recent revelations:

Whitehouseportraitjackie1* John Kennedy and Attorney General  (brother Robert F. Kennedy) openly shared their  contempt over the  premise of Johnson’s succession as our next Chief Executive in 1968.  A game plan was presumably in the works by the siblings as early as 1962 to nix this  strategy that was set forth by the Democratic National Committee.

* Jackie initially believed the 1963 assassination of JFK was orchestrated by LBJ. She changed her  opinion after Johnson wrote a series of notes to her expressing his own personal sorrow and his concern for the former First Lady.

* Jackie and Bobby had a fling that would lead to an alleged affair, initiated by their mutual grief  caused by the tragic events,  which occurred on  November 22, 1963. It continued until his death in 1968. By a number of accounts, RFK’s spouse (Ethel) was sadly aware of the situation.

   The new book is set to be published by Hyperion Books on September 14. An Introduction  has been written by daughter Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, who gave permission to release these candid interviews for use in this book and on a subsequent special to air on television. The availablity of the iconic Q&A coincides with the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s Inauguration.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
