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, Taraborrelli continues the family chronicle begun with his bestselling Jackie, Ethel, Joan 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 emotional turmoil Jackie faced after JFK’s murder and the complexities of her eventual marriage to Aristotle Onassis; the 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 Edward “Teddy” 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, J. Randy Taraborrelli takes readers on an epic journey as he unfolds the ongoing saga of the nation’s most famous—and controversial—family.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dale Stonehouse | 2/15/2014

    " For those into all things Kennedy this is a pretty objective account, albeit not as interesting as a single book on JFK Jr. can be. All the 3rd-generation family members are updated here and all the tragedies post-1968 detailed. Can there be too many Kennedy books? As long as there is anything new to report, I guess not. "

    " This book was a disappointment to me. I checked it out, thinking it would be solid history. But it felt more like reading a gossip magazine. Not my cup of tea. "

    " I loved this book. There was great detail about so many different Kennedy family happenings over the years, both good and bad. I think this is a great starter book for people who are interested in the Kennedy family! "
