It's all about music, photography, the short story and politics of living.

True Compass Edward M. Kennedy
For autobiographies this one arrives with a soft touch. It's a boy's recollection of early life within a vibrant, competitive yet respectful family structure. Joy abounds as the youngest Kennedy experiences the day to day exchanges with sisters, brothers and a stern yet giving father. Much is expected. Humility abounds. I'm early on in this marvelous recollection of summers in Cape Cod - sailing and misadventures but savoring every passage.
