Book Details

When Jackie meets charismatic congressman Jack Kennedy, she is twenty-one and dreaming of a life in Paris. She has won an internship at Vogue and thinks Kennedy is “Too American. Too good-looking”. Yet, she is drawn to his mind, his humour, his drive and the chemistry between them is undeniable. Soon she’s Kennedy’s lady & then America’s. We know what happens next: one shot, which missed the car, and a second, which did not. We are with Jackie through her years of mourning, the rise and death of Bobby Kennedy, her marriage to businessman Aristotle Onassis, her career as an editor at Doubleday and her friendships with remarkable people. Jackie is the story of a woman who forged a legacy out of grief and shaped history. It is the story of a love affair and a complicated marriage. It is at once a deeply human work of imagination that captures what she was thinking and feeling, what she was afraid of, fought for, and believed in. This is Jackie.
