Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Defined in the public eye by her two high-profile marriages, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis began 1975

with an ailing husband and the first signs of an empty nest. But 1975 became a year of personal renaissance for Jackie, when she rediscovered talents and passions she had set aside for her role as wife and mother and reinvented herself in our common imagination.

In Jackie After O, Tina Cassidy explores this prolific yet daunting year in the life of Jacqueline Onassis, including her part in the preservation of Grand Central Terminal, her pursuit of a publishing career, the death of Aristotle Onassis, and the bombing that almost stole her own child's life. Cassidy has unearthed new information from archives and interviews and reveals intimate stories of Jackie's earlier years as well.

Jackie After O is an exciting and original portrayal of the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis through the lens of one remarkable year, as she shook the world's expectations and pursued her dreams in middle age.

Synopsis:

Former Boston Globe reporter Tina Cassidy delivers a remarkable account of one year in the life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Americas favorite first lady and an international icon. 1975 was a year of monumental changes for Jackie: it was the year she lost her second husband, shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, saved one of New York Citys cultural landmarks at Grand Central Station, and found her true calling—not as a powerful mans wife or the mother of future leaders, but as a woman of the workforce with a keen mind and a dedication to excellence. Readers of Christopher Andersens Jackie After Jack and Pamela Clarke Keoghs Jackie Style will find no better look at the intimate world of Americas Queen of Camelot than Tina Cassidys Jackie After O.
