In this memoir, former Massachusetts State Senator and White House Chief of Staff William M. Bulger describes his long and varied career in politics, from his childhood in a working-class family to his years in the state senate and his time as the top aide to President John F. Kennedy. Bulger describes the key moments of his career, including his work as a legislator, White House official, and lobbyist; his involvement in the Mafia; and his imprisonment for corruption. While the Music Lasts is an honest and revealing look at one of the most influential political figures of the 20th century, it is also a deeply personal book, illuminating Bulger's struggles with alcoholism and his relationships with family and friends.; B & W Plates; 8vo; 328 pages.
