BOSTON -- At Doyle's pub, the odds aren't in Joe Kennedy's favor this evening. The bartender practically spits out his name and swears never to vote for him. Women in the restroom rail about how Kennedy men behave and predict he won't set up shop in the Statehouse.Ed Jesser, unofficial king of this political hangout, sits in a corner booth, rubbing his snow-white beard and nursing a Bass Ale. All this pessimism doesn't dissuade him: Ethel and Bobby's oldest son will win the governor's race in 1998, he says.

For Joe and Joyce Kennedy, the new year came with a new home. Having placed their Bel Air home on the market and sold it in three days, the vibrant pair of empty-nesters chose to buy one of the villa homes built by Bob Ward in the Harford County community of Vale Meadows. Their end-of-group residence, constructed with vinyl siding and elegantly complemented with a brick and stone front, was ready for them by the end of December. They moved on Dec. 30 and were comfortably settled in by the time they toasted 2010.

"Hostage to Fortune: The Letters of Joseph P. Kennedy," edited by Amanda Smith. Viking. 764 pages. $39.95. Never a war hero. Never a president or an attorney general or a senator. Yet Joseph P. Kennedy sired four sons who collectively achieved all of the above and did so with an elan that is the stuff of America's favorite modern folk tale. If the four Kennedy brothers created the legend, it was the father who created the dynasty. "I stand in awe of your relationship with your children," Franklin D. Roosevelt, himself the father of four neglected and nonachieving sons, once remarked to Joseph P. Kennedy.

There aren't enough books about the Kennedy family. The world will continue to read and read more of them, the most recent of which is out this week, "Sins of the Father: Joseph P. Kennedy and the Dynasty He Founded," by Ronald Kessler (Warner Books. 480 pages. $24.95). And the world, or Americans anyway, need this ceaseless outpouring.Can there be anyone in the United States who isn't thoroughly bored of the Kennedys? In your average chain bookstore, literally half the books in the American history section concern the family in one way or another.

"Rose: The Life and Times of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy," by Charles Higham. 454 pages. New York: Pocket Books. $23Charles Higham writes about movie stars and royalty. Now, he turns to Rose Kennedy. And why not? The Kennedys are America's royal family, and icons of popular culture. Books about Joe, John, Bobby and Ted Kennedy could already fill a good-sized book case, but the section on Rose is still pretty empty.Unfortunately, Mr. Higham's addition to the Kennedy bibliography does not do the genre of celebrity biography proud.

HAVRE DE GRACE -- The Kennedy family has treated Maryland as one of its minor colonies for years, which even Marylanders who haven't been brought up to recognize and respect royalty tend to find flattering.But as the recent soap-operatic announcement by Congressman Joseph Kennedy that he won't run for governor of Massachusetts after all makes clear, Maryland's been missing out on most of the imperial fun. And it's fun, rather than scandal or self-importance or rhetorical vapidity, which is the famous family's most important product.
