Overview

As Aristotle Onassis's personal secretary, Kiki Feroudi Moutsatsos either arranged, witnessed, or heard about every aspect of life in the Onassium during the last decade of the magnate's life, including his longtime affair with Maria Callas, his marriage to Jackie Kennedy, and the death of his son, Alexander. The Onassis Women is Moutsatsos's privileged insider's account of an incredible man and the objects of his love. Kiki Feroudi Moutsatsos is the only intimate witness to these events still living, and only now is she able to tell her story - a glimpse into the private and often painful world of all of these larger-than-life individuals. She has kept silent for many years, wanting to protect their privacy until the end. In bringing her true stories to light, Moutsatsos shares her memories of their remarkable lives and finally puts to rest the many rumors that have circulated about the Onassis family for so long.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As a very young woman in Greece, Moutsatsos worked for the Onassis family and their airline, serving as Aristotle Onassis's personal assistant for much of that time. In this memoir, she gives her own account of the last decade of Onassis's life, a decade that saw him loving one woman, Maria Callas; marrying another, Jackie Kennedy; and constantly trying to please a third, his daughter, Christina. Moutsatsos offers some intriguing information about these women's lives with Onassis; for example, she observes that although Onassis loved Callas, he and Kennedy were also very much in love at the time they wed. In addition, Moutsatsos shows a deep affection for the whole Onassis family, which comes through particularly when she writes about Alexander, the son who died in a plane crash. Despite the air of Greek tragedy that hangs over all her subjects, Moutsatsos's insider's view, love for these people, and the wealth, fame, and glamour of the women make this a fascinating book. Expertly read by actress Judy Kaye, whose use of the slightest hint of a Greek accent brings a bit of authenticity to the performance, this would be a good addition to any biography collection. Highly recommended.--Sally G. Waters, Stetson Coll. of Law Lib., St. Petersburg, FL Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
