The dark side of Camelot is revealed in a new book “These Few Precious Days: The Final Year of Jack with Jackie,” by bestselling biographer Christopher Andersen.
The book, which provides new details about the routine painkiller injections Kennedy received to treat his wartime injuries, breaks new ground in its portrayal of the president’s love affairs.
The first couple (pictured above) suffered from intimacy issues but saw each other often around the White House and always maintained formality around staffers and other onlookers.
“He would never hold hands in public or put his arm around me — that was naturally just distasteful to him,” Jackie once said.
Excerpts from the book were published in the New York Daily News one week ago.
