Using remarkable new sources - including in-depth interviews with Jackie's sister, Lee Radziwell - Sarah Bradford has written a timely celebration of a life that was more private than commonly supposed.
Jackie's privileged upbringing instilled rigid self-control, while her expedient marriage into the overwhelming Kennedy clan consolidated her determination. Revealing new testimony from many of the couple's friends shows the profound complexities both of this apparently very public relationship and of her controversial marriage to Aristotle Onassis.
Here is the private Jackie - neglected wife, vigilant mother, and working widow - whose contradictory and fascinating nature is illuminated by all that Bradford has discovered.
"Some of the most personally knowledgeable observations about [Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis] that have ever been put into print." ( The Boston Globe)
"Compulsively readable." ( The Washington Post)

This is the most intimate biograghy, and perhaps the most accurate book of Jackie's entire life. It is the second best work ever published about our most beloved First Lady, the finest being Sally Bedell Smith's Grace And Power, which was written some time afterward. This recording of Bradford's biography was originally released on both cassette and CD audio in abridged form, as is this recording. I would have enjoyed this so much more if this audible reading had been unabridged as so many lengthy biographies are, because Sandra Burr's voice is execellent.
