dj has a piece absent front top (perhaps chewed off by one of JPK's rivals??) review - "Fine and Hauntingly detailed, evoking the image of a man whose most stunning characteristic was the naked and sustained force of his want.... What makes the story so great is simply that Joseph Kennedy is a great literary character, a character in the oldest tradition, a flawed figure on a grand stage, moving toward his destiny unaware of his flaws. It is precisely because Mr. Whalen recognizes Kennedy as a literary character that this book is so brilliantly memorable." -- Joan Didion, National Review 541pp incl bw pix
