A Very Private Woman
A Very Private Woman: The Life and Unsolved Murder of Presidential Mistress Mary Meyer | Nina Burleigh
2 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
In 1964, Mary Pinchot Meyer, the beautiful, rebellious, and intelligent ex-wife of a top CIA official, was killed on a quiet Georgetown towpath near her home. Mary Meyer was a secret mistress of President John F. Kennedy, whom she had known since private school days, and after her death, reports that she had kept a diary set off a tense search by her brother-in-law, newsman Ben Bradlee, and CIA spymaster James Jesus Angleton. But the only suspect in her murder was acquitted, and today her life and death are still a source of intense speculation, as Nina Burleigh reveals in her widely praised book, the first to examine this haunting story. From the Trade Paperback edition.

TommieMarie74 I used to love perusing my mom‘s bookshelves. I found several gems there over the years. 2y
Reviewsbylola Sounds good. I read a memoir written by one of JFK‘s mistresses and thought it was great. Although it‘s hard to reconcile liking JFK with the fact that he was also a shitty, philandering husband. 2y

The book I'm about to start, from last week's library trip. Edit: bailed. Extremely dry, and paints her life only as it pertains to the men around her. Couldn't keep reading it.
