Summary
"RFK, a new biography of Robert Kennedy ... takes as its theme lines from Aeschylus that Kennedy could recite from memory: "He who learns must suffer." RFK is a tragedy in two acts. In part one: The garish sun, Robert Kennedy devotes himself to his glamorous brother John, suppressing his own ambitions for the sake of the Kennedy name. In part two: The awful grace of God, after an assassin's bullet takes his brother's life, RFK is bereft, not only of a brother he loved, but a role that had given meaning to his life. Plunged into unremitting pain and grief, he struggles to find his own voice"--Container
