In a recent interview, author James Patterson said that the story of Kennedy Family was significantly more fascinating than Queen Elizabeth was as an individual.
The new book, "The House of Kennedy," by James Patterson, written with Cynthia Fagen, investigates whether there is a "Kennedy curse," as reported by USA Today.
"This family of widows and fatherless children has been cursed with nearly unimaginable losses," reads the annotation of his book about the Kennedy clan.

Patterson, one of the most prolific and bestselling thriller writers on the planet, explained the reason why he wants to write the book.
"One of the things that drove me to write the book is I just felt that this is the great American family story because the characters," he told Washington Bureau chief Susan Page, "they're so vibrant and interesting."
Patterson added that the book covers a period from the Depression directly through to the present day. TV producer Barbara Hall, he shared, "wants to turn this into one of those five-year series like 'The Crown,' so this would be like the American' Crown.'"

"I loved 'The Crown,' but these people were a lot more interesting really than Queen Elizabeth was as a person," Patterson continued. "The culture inside the family is more interesting than the royal family. This is America's royal family, I guess."
Earlier this year, USA Today reported that one of the most comprehensive private collections of John F. Kennedy memorabilia is available to be purchased.
Boston's RR Auction offered the hundreds of items related to Kennedy as a single lot for at least $1.5 million.

Boston's RR Auction offered the hundreds of items related to Kennedy as a single lot for at least $1.5 million. RR Executive Vice President Robert Livingston, however, said that it could get much more.
The former Democratic president's handwritten draft of his 1960 speech declaring his intention to run for president is included in the collection.

There are also several unpublished photographs and negatives of Kennedy and his family, watercolors he painted, and personal things such as necktie and back brace.
Meanwhile, the episode 11 of the podcast, "Fatal Voyage: The Death of JFK Jr.," discussed how John F. Kennedy Jr.'s radio was only one "digit off the proper frequency" during his final flight.

Jeff Guzzetti, a member of the National Transport Safety Board investigative team that arranged the report about the last trip of JFK Jr. on July 16, 1999, said he had no clue whether it was a result of the impact or whether it was indeed he didn't have the "proper frequency tuned in."
JFK Jr. was born only weeks after his father, John F. Kennedy, was elected president. He became prominent as the three-year-old saluting his dad's coffin after his assassination in 1963.
