BOOKS
October 25, 1992 | ALEX RAKSIN
THE SENATOR: My Ten Years With Ted Kennedy by Richard E. Burke with William and Marilyn Hoffer (St. Martin's: $23.95; 328 pp.). From Chappaquiddick to his mea culpa speech at Harvard last year ("I recognize . . . the faults in the conduct of my private life"), it seems that scandal has pursued Ted Kennedy (or vice versa) as doggedly as bullets pursued his older brothers. Whether this book creates yet another will depend on your view of a senator's primary job.

Carol Felsenthal distinguished herself as a digger not easily intimidated by a mighty subject when she wrote "Power, Privilege and the Post," a biography of Washington Post owner Katharine Graham. Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons in 1993, over the expressed concerns of Graham's attorney, the 500-page book still managed to earn the respect of the Post's appointed reviewer. Ronald Steel said the book was "unlikely to please its subject" but that it painted "a persuasive portrait of a gutsy woman."
