by | Read by Ray Porter

Biography & Memoir • 20.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Ray Porter’s authoritative voice is well suited to Thomas’s meticulously researched biography. The listener meets the young RFK, a sensitive boy largely ignored by his powerful father. Thomas doesn’t gloss over the truth—as a teenager, RFK was angry. He had few close friends; his grades were poor. While RFK eventually found his place as his brother’s keeper and, later, a political force in his own right, he understood disenfranchisement and felt driven to fight for social reform. Thomas shows us Robert Kennedy in all his complexity—as family man, ruthless adversary, champion of the poor, idealist. In sync with Thomas’s text, Porter’s narration is simultaneously matter-of-fact and reverent. For Kennedy fans and political history buffs, this biography delivers.
