    Joseph Patrick Kennedy - whose life spanned the First World War, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the Second World War, and the Cold War - was the patriarch of America’s greatest political dynasty. The father of President John F. Kennedy and Senators Robert and Edward Kennedy, 'Joe' Kennedy was an indomitable and elusive figure whose dreams of advancement for his nine children were matched only by his extraordinary personal ambition and shrewd financial skills.

    Robert says: "Wonderfully entertaining and engaging"
    "Very informative and overall very entertaining."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Patriarch to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I enjoyed it very much.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Joseph P Kennedy. He was full of life and wasn't afraid to speak his mind. A strong presence that commanded respect. Infatuated with his family, but especially his children.


    Have you listened to any of Malcolm Hillgartner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end of the book was particularly sad. Such a spectacular human being ending up in such a physical condition. Having to endure the death of his two boys entombed in his own body, unable to express the rage he must have felt. It almost seemed as if he was paying for some unimaginable sin. What he cared for the most was stripped away at the weakest period in his life.
