America's Queen

The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

The definitive biography of Jackie Kennedy, by Britain's best royal biographer Jackie Kennedy was a twentieth-century icon of glamour, elegance and grace. As the beautiful young wife of President John F. Kennedy, she was adored, her style imitated across the world.But beneath the perfection of her public life lay contradiction, passion, and, all to often, tragedy. Sarah Bradford's brilliant new biography not only gives a fascinating account of her time with JFK, but also of her life after his assassination in 1963, in all its colour and controversy.

Sarah Bradford is a historian and biographer. Her books include Cesare Borgia (1976), Disraeli (1982), winner of the New York Times Book of the Year, Princess Grace (1984), Sacherevell Sitwell (1993), Elizabeth: A Biography of Her Majesty the Queen (1996), Lucrezia Borgia (2005), Diana (2007) and Queen Elizabeth II: Her Life in Our Times (2011). She frequently appears on television as an authority on her biographical subjects and as a commentator on notable royal events. She is currently working on a full scale biography of Queen Victoria. She lives in London.

In public, at JFK's side, Jackie's air of breathless sophistication, her chic cultural warmth complemented [him] perfectly. In private she could be softly malicious ... scurrilously funny, and full of the entertaining intolerance of those who are young, rich, beautiful ... a lucid, well-written new biography Guardian There has not been, nor will there be, a better biography of Jackie Times Literary Supplement The definitive biography -- Anthony Howard Sunday Times A masterly biography Daily Telegraph
