Overview

Unparalleled by any other family in the history of our nation, the Kennedys have become a legend for the scandals, the love and the mysteries that surround them.

The Kennedy Men: Three Generations of Sex, Scandal, and Secrets uncovers the truth about this long-admired family. Learn what they have endured and the truth about the men who play by their own rules: JFK’s rumored first marriage, President Kennedy’s Oval Office tapes, the night Marilyn Monroe died and the subsequent cover-up, the Good Friday rape case, Teddy Kennedy and the Chappaquiddick tragedy.

With no-holds-barred candor and insight, New York Times bestselling author Nellie Bly examines the rise and fall of the infamous Kennedy dynasty. Including a complete record of Kennedy arrests, convictions, and notable fines, this is the story of a family of boundless promise, undone by corruption from within. Includes 32 pages of revealing photos.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This is Kennedy family history for a visitor from Saturn, a by-the-clips stampede through the generations from Joe Sr. and his dynastic ambitions through the Joe/Jack/Bobby/Teddy era, trailing off into chronological snippets on every fourth-generation Kennedy infant. There's nothing new here unless one didn't know that Kennedy males drink a lot and have drawn more of their share of tragic cards from the deck. Had we forgotten that Rory Kennedy was arrested in 1984 for demonstrating in D.C. against apartheid in front of the South African embassy? Or that John F. Kennedy Jr. failed his New York bar exam more than once? The short story here is that Kennedy men are aggressive, oversexed spoiled brats and that their women are nobly struggling to full citizenship in the clan. Bly, a pseudonymous author oddly both pictured and named (Sarah Gallick) in the accompanying publicity, assembles her material conscientiously and identifies almost every anecdote and quotation by its origin in another Kennedy volume. She isn't pretending access to any primary sources, but she's read a lot of books by "pocket Kennedy historians," including Arthur Schlesinger and Doris Kearns Goodwin. This is for Kennedy fanatics only. Photos not seen by PW. (Mar.)
