America's Queen Summary

America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Sarah Bradford

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.

America's Queen Reviews

There has not been, nor will there be, a better biography of Jackie * Times Literary Supplement *
Exceptionally intelligent and well-written . . . a thumping good read * Daily Mail *
The definitive biography -- Anthony Howard * Sunday Times *
A timely reminder of the contradictory and complicated character of the First Lady . . . a revealing portrait * Daily Mail *
Long before Diana Spencer, Jacqueline Kennedy was the world's ultimate fantasy princess . . . 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 *
A masterly biography * Daily Telegraph *
Sarah Bradford is very good, and very detailed, about the Kennedys. A good biography, and a good history * Evening Standard *
Bradford has a real grasp of history and the ability to make it spark into new life -- Anne Chisholm * Sunday Telegraph *
Bradford's forte, ever since she was a history-mad girl, is thinking herself into other lives * Daily Telegraph *
