Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy

Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Caroline Kennedy, Michael R. Beschloss I got this from the library and amazingly enough, it is a transcript of the actual interviews that Jacqueline Kennedy gave to Arthur Schlesinger in 1964, a mere 4 months after JFK had been killed, and then a set of CD's of those very interviews. I am reading the interviews now, and probably will listen to a few of the CD's.*************Worthwhile reading. Interesting to hear Jackie's "take" on many issues that mostly encompassed JFK's political life as senator of Massachusetts to the presidency. Even more interesting to hear her likes and dislikes of different people. Some sweet moment in listening to the CD were when John, her youngest son, would come into the room and either talk or play with the tape recorder. At one point Schlesinger asks John where his Daddy is, and John replies, "In heaven". That part almost made me weep.
