James Patterson’s Newest Non-Fiction Release Tackles Kennedy Family Tragedies

Nonfiction is the new line in the Patterson program with Little, Brown. His latest release, THE HOUSE OF KENNEDY, fixes its lens on the tragic family legacy of the Kennedy’s. With his focus on strong storytelling, dramatic scenes, and narratively entertaining treatment of nonfiction subjects Patterson’s THE HOUSE OF KENNEDY will likely follow the success of FILTHY RICH and ALL-AMERICAN MURDER.

USAToday sat down with Patterson to discuss his latest release.

Summary: The Kennedys have always been a family of charismatic adventurers, raised to take risks and excel, living by the dual family mottos: “To whom much is given, much is expected” and “Win at all costs.” And they do–but at a price.

Across decades and generations, the Kennedys have occupied a unique place in the American imagination: charmed, cursed, at once familiar and unknowable. The House of Kennedy is a revealing, fascinating account of America’s most storied family, as told by America’s most trusted storyteller.
