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.
From the Publisher:
The first book to explore Jackie Kennedy's relationship with her mother examines Jackie's early life and illuminates often-overlooked aspects of the Kennedy family following the assassination of JFK.
This biography of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis focuses on the influence of her mother, Janet Lee Auchincloss.


New York Times Book Review
"[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." - Sally Bedell Smith 11/25/2001
