Ted Kennedy: The Dream That Never Died
Author: Edward Klein
Publisher: Crown
Price: $32 (Hardcover)

Perhaps known equally for his political life as his private one, Ted Kennedy has been a subject of public scrutiny for much of his lawmaking career. In this new biography, author Edward Klein speaks candidly with friends and family and Kennedy’s colleagues in politics to express the man’s legislative achievements set against a rocky past. From the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident, in which Kennedy drove off a bridge, resulting in the death of his passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, to his continued womanizing ways, Klein doesn’t ignore the controversy in his chronicle.
