After Camelot

A Personal History of the Kennedy Family - 1968 to the Present

By J. Randy Taraborrelli

  • Paperback
  • £14.99

From the New York Times bestselling author of Jackie, Ethel, Joan - Women of Camelot, comes an engrossing and revealing portrait of the next generation of Kennedys.

AFTER CAMELOT, Taraborelli's newest book, picks up where Jackie, Ethel and Joan left off, as we follow these three Kennedy women as they continue their lives as high-profile, single women raising their children.This book spotlights the Kennedy sisters - Pat, Eunice and Jean - and, most importantly, focuses on the next generation of Kennedys, since it has fallen upon that fourth generation to fulfill many of the dreams of the third. And, finally, Taraborlli brings into clear focus the complex and intriguing story of Ted Kennedy, the family's patriarch, and how he has influenced that next generation's sensibilities.

Capturing the wealth, glamour and prestige for which the Kennedys are so well-known, as well as their darker side,Taraborrelli takes the reader on an epic and sweeping journey as he becomes intimately familiar with the members of, arguably, the nation's most famous - and controversial - family.

Jeremy Thorpe

Michael Bloch
Authors:
Michael Bloch

The story of Jeremy Thorpe's rapid rise and spectacular fall from grace is one of the most remarkable in British politics. When he became leader of the Liberal Party in 1967 at the age of just thirty-seven, he seemed destined for truly great things. But as his star steadily rose so his nemesis drew ever nearer: a time-bomb in the form of Norman Scott, a homosexual wastrel and sometime male model with whom Jeremy had formed an ill-advised relationship in the early 1960s. Scott's incessant boasts about their 'affair' became increasingly embarrassing, and eventually led to a bizarre murder plot to shut him up for good. Jeremy was acquitted of involvement but his career was in ruins.Michael Bloch's magisterial biography is not just a brilliant retelling of this amazing story; ten years in the making, it is also the definitive character study of one of the most fascinating figures in post-war British politics.

Kill the Messenger (Movie Tie-In Edition)

Nick Schou
Authors:
Nick Schou

Now a major motion picture starring Jeremy Renner! Kill the Messenger tells the story of the tragic death of Gary Webb, the controversial newspaper reporter who committed suicide in December 2004. Webb is the former San Jose Mercury News reporter whose 1996 "Dark Alliance" series on the so-called CIA-crack cocaine connection created a firestorm of controversy and led to his resignation from the paper amid escalating attacks on his work by the mainstream media. Author and investigative journalist Nick Schou published numerous articles on the controversy and was the only reporter to significantly advance Webb's stories.Drawing on exhaustive research and highly personal interviews with Webb's family, colleagues, supporters and critics, this book argues convincingly that Webb's editors betrayed him, despite mounting evidence that his stories were correct. Kill the Messenger examines the "Dark Alliance" controversy, what it says about the current state of journalism in America, and how it led Webb to ultimately take his own life.Webb's widow, Sue Bell Stokes, remains an ardent defender of her ex-husband. By combining her story with a probing examination of the one of the most important media scandals in recent memory, this book provides a gripping view of one of the greatest tragedies in the annals of investigative journalism.

Derek Jarman

Tony Peake
Authors:
Tony Peake

Taken decade by decade, Derek Jarman's life is a virtual encapsulation of the social and cultural history of the latter half of the twentieth century, from post-war austerity through the liberated sixties and the perplexing seventies to the eighties of Aids and Thatcherism.Always influential in artistic and film-making terms, and within the gay community, Jarman had attained before his death a figurehead status that is now very generally recognised, and can only increase with time. His extraordinary garden in Dungeness in Kent has become a major tourist attraction and his films still compel massive critical attention. Tony Peake was Derek Jarman's literary agent, and knew him well. His authorised biography is based on first-hand interviews and primary research and does immense justice to a brilliant - and singular - subject.
