Interviews with Jackie

Close on the heels of the best selling Letters to Jackie, Hyperion has announced that they will publish a book of previously unreleased interviews with the First Lady, conducted just months after her husband was killed.

The idea doesn’t please everyone. Irish Central, the web site of the Irish Voice and the Irish American, editorialized against the project, saying that, with all we now know about President Kennedy’s personal life,

…Jackie is in danger of looking dangerously naive about her marriage and her husband. The tapes will doubtless reveal a Jackie who will speak about a devoted couple even though the harsh truth was otherwise — and Jackie knew it.

The book will be published in September, 2011.
