Portrait Of A PresidenteBook - 2017
Written by one of President John F. Kennedy's greatest admirers and closest confidants, this intimately detailed account provides a rarely seen glimpse into the emotions behind the Kennedy administration-from the elation of victory to the frustrating challenges facing a young president at this pivotal turning point in U. S. history. Originally published in 1962-before the assassination of JFK-Portrait of a President is William Manchester's first biography of the 35th President of the United States. In addition to personal encounters with JFK, the biography draws from over forty interviews conducted in the first year of his presidency. In speaking with those closest to the president, both in his administration and his family, Manchester captures a complete portrait of one of the most highly regarded figures of the twentieth century. This updated edition includes a new introduction and epilogue written by Manchester in the aftermath of November 1963, adding to the mythos by documenting not just how President Kennedy lived, but also the legacy he left behind.
