America's Queen: the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Author(s): Sarah H. Bradford


Jackie Kennedy was a twentieth-century icon of glamour, elegance and grace. As the beautiful young wife of President John F. Kennedy, she was adored, her style imitated across the world.

Bu beneath the perfection of her public life lay contradiction, passion and, all too often, tragedy. Sarah Bradford's brilliant new biography not only gives a fascinating account of her time with JFK, but also of her life after his assassination in 1963, in all its colour and controversy.
