America's intense interest in Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis continues unabated. In America's Queen, Sarah Bradford, the acclaimed author of Elizabeth: A Biography of Britain's Queen, examines the life and times of a different sort of royalty. Drawing heavily upon in-depth interviews with Jackie's sister Lee Radziwell and illustrated with previously unseen photographs, America's Queen offers an unblinking but evenhanded look at one of the most fascinating women of the 20th century.
[T]he book is probably the definitive one on the subject--providing, among other things, this entirely apt verdict on Jackie's character: "She had all the wrong standards, all the wrong standards," Demi Gates tells Bradford, "and yet she became something very special in spite of this."
...this book is probably the quintessential rap on the world-famous widow.
