Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy

In 1964, merely months after losing her husband, Jacqueline Kennedy was interviewed by close friend Arthur Schlesinger about her memories of John F. Kennedy. Released to the public nearly 50 years later, Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy is a window into the personal thoughts and aspirations of JFK, and the remarkable life of a First Lady.

Jacqueline speaks candidly about political leaders like Vice President Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover, as well as historic events of the 1960s including the Cuban Missile Crisis. At times the interviews seem more like gossip sessions, but one cannot help but be moved by her loyalty and devotion to her husband’s legacy. One also has to admire Jacqueline’s resiliency for completing the interviews, while even the nation was still in shock and mourning.

For a truly memorable experience, listen to the audiobook rather than read the transcripts. Jackie Kennedy’s voice is mesmerizing and will take you back in time. There are a few surprises too, including a visit from 3 year old “John-John.”
