Ho amato JFK

Alford Mimi

Italian version.
In the summer of 1962, nineteen-year-old Mimi Beardsley arrived in Washington, D.C., to begin an internship in the White House press office. After just three days on the job, the privileged but sheltered young woman was presented to the President himself. Almost immediately, the two began an affair that would continue for the next eighteen months. Emotionally unprepared to counter the Presidentís charisma and power, Mimi was also ill-equipped to handle the feelings of isolation that would follow as she fell into the double life of a college student who was also the secret lover of the most powerful man in the world. After the Presidentís assassination in Dallas, she grieved alone, locked her secret away, and tried to start a new life, only to be blindsided by her past.
Now, no longer defined by silence or shame, Mimi Alford finally unburdens herself with this unflinchingly honest account of her life and her extremely private moments with a very public man. This paperback edition includes a special Q&A, in which the author reflects on the intense media attention surrounding the bookís initial release. Once Upon a Secret is a moving story of a woman emerging from the shadows to reclaim the truth.

"I'll come back in the springtime" [JFK and the Irish]
Hennessy MauriceD.

This book not only emphasizes his Irish background, his love of Ireland and his association with its people, but also throws some light on how and why he differed from the familiar Irish-American political figure of an earlier day.
The wave of emotion that grew through four summer days in Ireland in 1963 reached its climax as the President boarded the plane for his return to the United States. He said "I certainly will come back in the springtime". and the fact that he did not live enough to carry out his promise gave the words special poignancy for the Irish.
