She was born with a sense of theater, of carefully choreographed exits and entrances, an eagerly awaited baby, who arrived an improbable six weeks late in Southampton Hospital, Long Island, on July 28, 1929. The birth had been scheduled to take place in a New York City hospital but Jackie, characteristically, chose to make her first appearance on a hot Sunday at the height of the summer season in the newly fashionable Hamptons. She was the first child of Janet Norton Lee and John Vernou Bouvier III, born just over a year after their wedding in nearby East Hampton, where both her grandparents owned comfortable summer houses in what was virtually Wall-Street-on-Sea. Within months of her birth, the stock market crash of October 1929 had cast its shadow over the Bouvier family fortunes, giving Jackie and her younger sister, Lee, born four years later, a sense of insecurity and fear of poverty that was to last almost all their lives.
The definitive portrait of an American icon chronicles the rise of Jackie from debutante of the year in 1947 through her subsequent high-powered marriages to JFK and Aristotle Onassis. Reprint. *Author: Bradford, Sarah *Subtitle: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis *Publication Date: 2001/10/01 *Number of Pages: 500 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 6.25 *Height: 9.25
From the Publisher:
The definitive portrait of an American icon chronicles the rise of Jackie from "debutante of the year" in 1947 through her subsequent high-powered marriages to JFK and Aristotle Onassis. Reprint.
Annotation:
Since Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis entered the American consciousness as "debutante of the year" in 1947, she has occupied a privileged position in the American pantheon. This portrait draws on interviews with her sister, Lee Radziwill, and is amply illustrated with previously unpublished photographs.

Praise

New York Times
"Bradford had access to people who were close to Mrs. Onassis, people who had never spoken publicly about her when she was alive--including her sister, Lee Radziwill. A well-connected British writer (in England, her title is Viscountess Bangor), Bradford is also well regarded...." - William Norwich 12/17/00

Times Literary Supplement
"Bradford is a scrupulous biographer of the most orthodox kind....Bradford has innate integrity as well as the integrity of the biographical method....There has not been, nor will there be, a better biography of Jackie O...." - Grey Gowrie 02/23/2001
