Description
In the summer of 1962, 19-year-old Mimi Beardsley arrived in Washington, D.C., to begin an internship in the White House press office. Within days she was introduced to President Kennedy himself, and almost immediately the two began an affair that would continue for the next 18 months, until his assassination in Dallas. She locked her secret away and started her life over, until a Kennedy biographer finally tracked her down in 2003. In this remarkably clear-sighted book, Beardsley—now Mimi Alford—reflects on how keeping that secret has shaped her life ever since.

"With the benefit of hindsight and good old-fashioned maturity, she does not judge her young self, or indeed JFK, too harshly. She writes not just about the secret, but about the corrosive effect of keeping that secret.... In short, she's a wise old bird, and you can't help liking her, or her elegant and thoroughly good-natured book."—Spectator (London)
