Description
"From New York Times bestselling author of Jackie, Janet & Lee comes a fresh and often startling look at the life of the legendary former first lady, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Based on hundreds of interviews with friends, family, and lovers over a thirty-year period -- as well as previously unreleased material from the JFK Library -- Kennedy historian J. Randy Taraborrelli paints an unforgettable new portrait of a woman whose flaws and contradictions only serve to make her even more iconic. "I have three lives," Jackie told a former lover, "public, private and secret." In this revealing biography, readers will become intimately familiar with all three. New insights from the book include: -- Jackie's cold feet before her wedding to Jack Kennedy and her secret plan to avoid moving into the White House with him. -- Jackie's plan to meet with the woman with whom her husband, Aristotle Onassis, was again having an affair, Maria Callas...and why, in the end, she decided against it. -- The truth about the nude photos of Jackie which scandalized her in the 1970s...and which family member had betrayed her by selling them. -- Her unusual relationship with Maurice Templesman, which was never what outsiders believed it to be. -- The never-before-reported, last-ditch efforts to save Jackie's life with experimental cancer treatments, and the doctor who wouldn't risk jail time in order to treat her. Twenty-nine years after her death and sixty years after the assassination of President Kennedy, Jackie delivers the last word on one of the most famous women in the world"--,Provided by publisher.
