9780241967430: America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

From Sarah Bradford, Britain's best Royal biographer comes America's Queen, the definitive biography of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis - a fascinating account of an extraordinary life.

Jackie Bouvier's privileged upbringing instilled rigid self-control, while her expedient marriage into the Kennedy clan consolidated her determination. Revealing new testimony from many of the couple's closest friends show the profound complexities both of this very public relationship, including the affairs that threatened it, and of her controversial marriage to Onassis. Here is the private Jackie - neglected wife, vigilant mother, obsessive shopper and working widow - whose fascinating nature is illuminated by all that Bradford has discovered.

'Exceptionally intelligent and well-written . . . a thumping good read' Daily Mail

'There has not been, nor will there be, a better biography of Jackie' TLS

'Lucid, well-written. Long before Diana Spencer, Jacqueline Kennedy was the world's ultimate fantasy princess' Guardian

Recensione:

Exceptionally intelligent and well-written . . . a thumping good read ( Daily Mail)

Bradford has a real grasp of history and the ability to make it spark into new life (Anne Chisholm Sunday Telegraph)

Bradford's forte, ever since she was a history-mad girl, is thinking herself into other lives ( Daily Telegraph)

Long before Diana Spencer, Jacqueline Kennedy was the world's ultimate fantasy princess . . . In public, at JFK's side, Jackie's air of breathless sophistication, her chic cultural warmth complemented [him] perfectly. In private she could be softly malicious . . . scurrilously funny, and full of the entertaining intolerance of those who are young, rich, beautiful . . . a lucid, well-written new biography ( Guardian)

There has not been, nor will there be, a better biography of Jackie ( Times Literary Supplement)

The definitive biography (Anthony Howard Sunday Times)

A masterly biography ( Daily Telegraph)

A timely reminder of the contradictory and complicated character of the First Lady . . . a revealing portrait ( Daily Mail)

Sarah Bradford is very good, and very detailed, about the Kennedys. A good biography, and a good history ( Evening Standard)
