Product Overview

Despite hundreds of books and thousands of articles on Jackie Kennedy, surprisingly little is known about her mother''s role in her life and achievements. Often dismissed as a social climber who faded into the woodwork after she divorced Jackie''s father-the dashing, disreputable "Black Jack" Bouvier-and married the rich Hugh D. Auchincloss, Janet not only played a pivotal part in Jackie''s own wedding to JFK, but often served as a stand-in for Jackie during the White House years, and helped her cope with John and Caroline after the assassination.
The only book to explore this fascinating mother-daughter relationship, "Janet & Jackie" is filled with stories that shed new light on the personal life of an American icon.

"[A] reliable and balanced account....Pottker interviewed members of Jackie's family, as well as close friends and employees of Janet's, and had access to family papers that she used judiciously. There is abundant evidence to back up Pottker's conclusions."
