A Woman Named Jackie: An Intimate Biography of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis needs no introduction. For more than twenty-five years she has been the focus of unparalleled fascination and uninterrupted curiosity, the most pursued, written-about, photographed and famous woman of our time.

She has been admired, vilified, argued about and scrutinized. She has been the subject of endless news reports, gossip columns, memoirs and case histories. Through it all she has remained an enigma, a riddle, a person shrouded in mystery and mystique.

Now C. David Heymann has written a book that gives new meaning to the words "compelling" and "fascinating." In the pages of A Woman Named Jackie he unravels the riddle of Jacqueline Onassis's complex life and character.

Heymann wrote A Woman Named Jackie based on hundreds of exclusive interviews with members of Jackie's family, friends, and acquaintances. In addition, he was given unprecedented access to personal correspondence and other source materials. These included never-before released FBI, Secret Service and White House files.

Here is the most comprehensive portrait of this complex woman ever published. It reveals the real Jackie, creative and intelligent, yet driven by ambition and the enjoyment of power. And it tells why and how she got that way.

About the Author

C. David Heymann is the author of A Woman Named Jackie, Liz: An Intimate Biography Of Elizabeth Taylor, and Poor Little Rich Girl: The Life And Legend Of Barbara Hutton. He lives in New York City.
