REVIEWS & QUOTES
"Leamer has a real gift for writing popular, accessible history that incorporates new research, interviews, psychological insights and an evenhanded approach."
"Impeccable: Leamer never overreaches, delivering accessible and even insightful portraits of Camelot's sons."
"His two joint biographies--Kennedy Women (1994) and Kennedy Men (2001)--remain among the most readable works on the ever-growing Kennedy shelves…It is clear, as Leamer tells their stories, that the research he has done for previous books--and, just as important, the contacts he has made over the years--gives his work an insider status rarely found in the Kennedy oeuvre…Kennedy watchers, who continue to be legion, will find this a fascinating chapter in the never-ending story."
"Buttressed by interviews with several close friends who have never spoken about John Jr. before…Leamer has wisely loaded [SONS OF CAMELOT] with more than enough scandal to satisfy audience expectations."
"Leamer’s portrait of John F. Kennedy Jr., and his marriage to Carolyn Bessette—fleshed out with interview with friends—feels more intimate and immediate than many that have recently appeared."
New York Times
Haunting…Leamer succeeds in weaving a few common threads that show how the Kennedy male offspring often crumbled under the weight of expectations."
