Sex, Drugs, & Murder - Let's talk about the Kennedys! I'm best-selling author Howie Carr AMA
Howie Carr, here. I'm a Boston-based journalist, best-selling author and talk radio Hall of Famer. My new book is Kennedy Babylon: A Century of Scandal and Depravity.
I've tangled with the Kennedys for decades. In 1988, then-Sen. Ted Kennedy became so enraged that I nicknamed him "Fat Boy" in my Boston Herald column that he tried to force Rupert Murdoch to sell the paper! My book busts many myths about the Kennedy family and exposes the sordid truth -- from gangster ties to Marilyn Monroe to Chappaquiddick, I cover it all.
My previous best-sellers include The Brothers Bulger, a review of James J. "Whitey" Bulger's reign of terror in Boston, and Hitman, which I wrote with Whitey's hitman, Johnny Martorano. You can check out the AMA I did last year about Boston organized crime here.
EDIT: I've got to take a break to do my radio show. But keep the questions coming! I'll be back here tonight to answer questions around 7:30 p.m. EST. Thanks!
EDIT2: I'm back!
