Summary, Etc. "FIRST FRIENDS includes the riveting histories of myriad presidential friendships, among them Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed, the man with whom Lincoln once shared a bed and who did more to help him emerge from his crippling depression than anyone else; Harry Truman and Eddie Jacobson, the Kansas City haberdasher who played a pivotal part in America's recognition of the state of Israel in 1948; and Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Daisy Suckley, a distant cousin for whom the president had deep feelings and entrusted with highly classified strategic and diplomatic information that even his cabinet members were not aware of. These and other friendships -- including JFK and David Ormsby-Gore, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, Richard Nixon and Bebe Rebozo -- populate this fresh and provocative exploration of over a dozen seminal presidential friendships"-- Provided by publisher.
