The Kennedy Imprisonment: A Meditation on Power

The Kennedy Imprisonment: A Meditation on Power

By Carry Wills

Atlantic/Little, Brown, 1982, 310 pp.

An unrelenting, gossipy, and self-indulgent attack on the Kennedys, readable but thin. Wills depicts Joseph Kennedy as a thoroughly corrupt man and President Kennedy as his worthy successor. There is a glimmer of compassion and sympathy for Edward.
