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.
