So As I Was Saying A Memoir of Frank Mankiewicz
I first met Robert Kennedy because I spoke Spanish. I spoke Spanish because the U.S. Army taught me that before sending me to France, Belgium, and Germany to fight Hitler s Army. This makes complete sense if you are familiar with military bureaucracy. Such is the trademark wit of Frank Mankiewicz. With his dry sense of humor and self-deprecating humility despite his many accomplishments Frank s voice speaks from the pages of So as I was Saying... in a way that is both conversational and profound. Before he died in 2014 Frank s fascinating life took him from Beverly Hills to the battlefields of Europe; from the halls of power in Washington D.C. to the far corners of the world. A lifelong student of humanity and mentor to many, including presidents, Frank was a loving father, husband, and friend, and his legacy is will endure for generations. Born into Hollywood royalty but determined to make his own way, Frank served in World War Two, wrote speeches for Robert Kennedy.
