‘Once Upon a Secret’ by Mimi Alford
The latest kiss-and-tell memoir comes nearly half a century after JFK’s death: “Once Upon a Secret’’ by Mimi Alford. In 1962, Mimi was a 19-year-old White House press office intern picked to have sex with Kennedy when his wife was out of town. Alford says that she had “an intimate, prolonged relationship’’ with Kennedy. What she goes on to detail, however, is little more than booty calls arranged by a White House aide.
