The Cape Cod Years of John Fitzgerald Kennedy

by Leo Damore


Leo Damore’s quietly introspective The Cape Cod Years of John F. Kennedy tells a story at once universal—the story of fitting in, or failing to fit in, to a small community—and legendary—the story of one of America’s best loved leaders, and how he became that way.


Buying options

“A book to buy and keep, not only as an important new chapter in the story of J.F.K., but as an expressive chronicle of the Cape.”


Leo Damore (1929–1995) is the bestselling author of Senatorial Privilege and In His Garden, among other titles. A long-time resident of Cape Cod, he died in Connecticut in 1995.
