Editorial reviews

The Nine of Us

Now, as Jean Kennedy Smith notes in her wistful memoir, “The Nine of Us: Growing Up Kennedy,” she’s the only one left. That’s reason enough to dip into this graceful if gossamer book.

Reading The Nine of Us: Growing Up Kennedy is like sitting down with your great-grandmother to look at a scrapbook of old photographs taken with a Brownie camera loaded with Kodak film. A relic from a bygone era. Sweetly nostalgic.
