writers have immersed themselves in the world of the Kennedys as
completely or successfully as C. David Heymann, whose biographies of
Jackie, Robert, John F. Kennedy Jr., and Caroline together have sold
millions of copies and have shed light on the private lives of the most
prominent members of this iconic American family. Now he draws on more
than two decades’ worth of personal interviews, as well as previously
unavailable reports and briefs from the Secret Service and the FBI, to
create a complete picture of the complex relationship that existed
between two of the most heralded figures of the twentieth century.
Americans have long been fascinated by the rumored love affair between Jackie Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy. With Bobby and Jackie
they will finally get more than a glimpse of their emotional and
romantic connection. An open secret for decades among family insiders,
their affair began as a result of their shared grief over the
assassination of the president in 1963 and lasted until Bobby began his
run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1968.
Audiences will gain behind-closed-doors access to Bobby and Jackie’s
liaison, from late-night trysts at Jackie’s Fifth Avenue apartment to
fervent embraces at the Kennedy estate in Palm Beach. They will also
learn more about the deep friendship that grew out of the couple’s
shared tragedies, their family loyalty, and their overflowing ambition.
It was “perhaps the most normal relationship either one ever had,”
Truman Capote observed. “In retrospect, it seems hard to believe that it
happened, but it did.” Poignant, illuminating, and enormously
entertaining, Bobby and Jackie is a glorious account of a legendary romance. Download and start listening now!
