Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The firstborn child of famed Rat Pack actor Peter Lawford and Patricia Kennedy, sister to John F. Kennedy, Christopher Kennedy Lawford grew up with presidents, senators, and movie stars as close relatives and personal friends. When he was a toddler, Marilyn Monroe taught him how to dance the twist. He recalls being awakened late at night to hear his uncle Jack announce his candidacy for president. His early life was marked by the traumatic assassinations of two beloved uncles—and during his teen years, he succumbed to the tragic allure of the 1970s drug scene.

Symptoms of Withdrawal is Lawford's unflinchingly honest portrayal of his life as a Kennedy—a journey overflowing with hilarious insider anecdotes, heartbreaking accounts of his addictions to narcotics as well as to celebrity, and, ultimately, the redemption he found by asserting his own independence.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2005-06-15)

The son of actor Peter Lawford and John F. Kennedy's sister Patricia, Lawford was raised in lime lit surroundings that evidently drove him to alcohol and drug addiction. Now he's an actor himself (he appears in The World's Fastest Indian, premiering this fall) and offers a tell-all memoir that can't be too nasty; the publicity vigorously asserts that he maintains warm ties with the Kennedy bunch. With a five-city tour.
