Farewell, Jackie: A Portrait of Her Final Daysby Edward Klein
In November 1993 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis took a tumble from her horse during a hunt in Virginia. A scarce six months later, on May 19, 1994, this fascinating woman of substance, style, and steely will passed away in her Park Avenue home. Farewell, Jackie by bestselling author Edward Klein, who knew Jackie for more than a dozen years, is the moving account of those last months and a celebration of the life of an American icon who faced death as she faced life-with all the bravery and grace of a woman who had long inspired the nation.
Chronicling the circumstances of Jackie's diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the astonishing pace of the cancer's progress, the treatments she endured, and the ones she refused, Klein recounts her heart-wrenching story, celebrating Jackie's life. Farewell, Jackie is a regal tribute and an inspiring account of the last days of a woman whose legacy endures in post- Camelot America.
