Excellent for downloading into something to listen to rather than read from is Jacqueline Kennedy’s Historic Conversations. The book’s exactly what’s on the audio CD’s. Don’t be disturbed by the clink of ice in her glass (iced tea? scotch?), cigarette lighter clicks followed by deep inhalations, and occasional children’s interruptions.
Reality check: Young widow with young children at home talking about her murdered husband four months after the funeral.
Seems like there’s an opera libretto here somewhere..
