9780099515876: American Adulterer

Like any womaniser, the subject of this novel must go to extraordinary lengths to hide his affairs from his wife and colleagues. But this is no ordinary adulterer - he is John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States. Yet he is also a virtuous man ensnared by an uncontrollable vice.

Startlingly empathetic, darkly witty and deft, American Adulterer takes inspiration from the tantalising details surrounding President Kennedy's sex life and medical secrets to weave a provocatively intricate portrait of the man's affairs, illness, courage and idealism - and in JFK's love for his wife, recreates one of history's most fascinatingly enigmatic marriages.

Review:

"Remarkable... The president's wit, courtesy, peacemaking vision and cool judgement are all here, vividly re-created, as well as courage in the face of near disabling infirmity and pain....gripping and thoughtful" (Hugo Barnacle The Sunday Times)

"Compelling. Glacially elegant prose... depicts a man who, for all his power, remains imprisoned by desire" (Adrian Turpin Financial Times)

"He writes in brilliantly clinical prose...His real success is here is to highlight how JFK moved politics into a culture of celebrity...Mercurio finds a truth in JFK through fiction" (Ben East Metro)

"Mercurio ought to be applauded for the boldness of his project...The Cuban Missile Crisis is brilliantly, claustrophobically handled, and the treatment of the president's tragically premature son Joseph so riveted me that I found my head reluctantly buried in the book as I walked down the street and bumped into things" (Archie Bland Independent)

" American Adulterer is a novel of our times: shameless and prurient, detached and salacious" (Sean O'Hagan The Observer)

Review:

`Mercurio ought to be applauded for the boldness of his project...The Cuban Missile Crisis is brilliantly, claustrophobically handled'
