ASK NOT The Inauguration of John F. Kennedy and the Speech That Changed the World

by | Read by Edward Herrmann

History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

This affectionate work of scholarship opens a window on a magical week in January 1961, when a stylish, manipulative president-elect mingled with actors, writers, diplomats, and mistresses, all while working on the "spare and elegant prose" that would become one of the most famous addresses in American history. Thurston Clarke's meticulous research uncovers many fascinating nuggets, including the debunking of the popular myth that Ted Sorenson was the primary author of the speech. Read with just the right sense of nobility by Edward Herrmann, this audiobook offers something the print version can't--a recording of the actual JFK speech interspersed with a play-by-play commentary.
