Overview

Jacqueline Kennedy nos habla por primera vez de su vida con JFK. Un testimonio histórico que sale ahora a la luz en esta edición coordinada por su hija Caroline.

Poco después del asesinato de John F. Kennedy, con la nación entera de luto y en un ambiente de fuerte conmoción internacional, Jacqueline Kennedy encontró la fortaleza necesaria para dejar de lado su dolor y contribuir a mantener vivo el legado de su marido. En enero de 1964 ella y su cuñado, Robert F. Kennedy, aprobaron un proyecto de historia oral que recogiera los acontecimientos más reseñables de la presidencia de Kennedy como ejemplo para las futuras generaciones. A principios de marzo la que fuera primera dama de Norteamérica se sentó junto al historiador y premio Pulitzer, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., para hablar de las aspiraciones políticas de Kennedy, los primeros años de casados, su carácter, los hábitos de lectura de JFK, sus héroes de infancia, la vida en la Casa Blanca, la revolución cubana o Bahía Cochinos, entre otros muchos temas. Aquellas cintas fueron grabadas y la información que contenía nunca se publicó. Hoy, 50 años después, y gracias al impulso de su hija Caroline salen a la luz.

Jacqueline Kennedy. Conversaciones históricas sobre mi vida con John F. Kennedy es una obra de historia oral #trufada de fotografías personales e inéditas# que da voz a uno de los testigos cruciales de aquel tiempo, una mujer que por desgracia ha estado ausente en todos los libros que se han escrito sobre John F. Kennedy hasta el momento. Ahora le toca hablar a ella, a Jacqueline Kennedy. La mañana de su muerte, el 19 de mayo de 1994, The New York Times destacaba el silencio que siempre guardó sobre su pasado, es más sus años junto a Kennedy y su matrimonio fueron siempre un misterio. Estas conversaciones son un documento magistral, una lección de historia y una confesión íntima que supone el final del silencio.

«Grabadas menos de cuatro meses después de la muerte de su marido, estas conversaciones suponen un regalo para la posteridad y una muestra de amor. Mis hijos y yo hemos decidido publicarlas ahora con motivo del 50 aniversario de la presidencia de mi padre. Espero que las generaciones futuras encuentren en estos recuerdos inspiración».
Caroline Kennedy

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Shortly after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, with a nation deep in mourning and the world looking on in stunned disbelief, Jacqueline Kennedy found the strength to set aside her own personal grief for the sake of posterity and begin the task of documenting and preserving her husband’s legacy. In January of 1964, she and Robert F. Kennedy approved a planned oral-history project that would capture their first-hand accounts of the late President as well as the recollections of those closest to him throughout his extraordinary political career. For the rest of her life, the famously private Jacqueline Kennedy steadfastly refused to discuss her memories of those years, but beginning that March, she fulfilled her obligation to future generations of Americans by sitting down with historian and Pulitzer Prize winner Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., and recording an astonishingly detailed and unvarnished account of her experiences and impressions as the wife and confidante of John F. Kennedy: their first years of marriage; his political aspirations, personality and reading habits; his childhood heroes; life at the White House; and the Cuban Revolution or Bay of Pigs; among many other recollections. The tapes of those sessions were then sealed and later deposited in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum upon its completion, in accordance with Mrs. Kennedy’s wishes. Today, on the fiftieth anniversary of President Kennedy’s Inauguration, and thanks to Caroline Kennedy, this unique and compelling record of a tumultuous era is available to the public. Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on life with John F. Kennedy is the first-hand account of Jacqueline Kennedy, key witness and participant in the events of that time—a voice that had, until this day, remained absent from all that has been written on JFK. Mrs. Kennedy’s urbane perspective, her candor, and her flashes of wit give us our clearest glimpse into the active mind of a remarkable First Lady, and perhaps the most informed, genuine, and immediate portrait of John Fitzgerald Kennedy we shall ever have.

this book is available in English or Spanish. I found it fascinating.  Mrs. Kennedy was a very intelligent and cultivated person.

I bought this book with high hopes of learning something new about an American president I barely remember, and a first lady I highly admired. I'm sure these transcripts are a wonderful part of American history, but the transcripts as a book make for difficult reading. It would have helped a lot if a little background narrative were included. Unfortunately, this book is like walking in on the middle of a private, somewhat cryptic, conversation. I tried hard to finish the book, but it was like walking through a dense fog. I finally had to give it up.
