The subject of this 896-page life is undoubtedly the most gossiped-about presidential father in U.S. history. Joseph P. Kennedy (1888-1969) was a Harvard graduate; a successful businessman, a Hollywood studio executive and Wall Street stock trader, and an American ambassador; but he was also a reputed Nazi sympathizer, Boston bootlegger, and friend of Mafia henchmen. Until now, narratives about the father of JFK, Robert, and Ted Kennedy have often relied on speculation; this biography by Bancroft Prize-winning author David Nasaw (Andrew Carnegie; The Chief) benefits from unrestricted and exclusive access to the elder Kennedy's personal papers. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
