9780060817053: Jack's Widow

The iconic First Lady, Jackie lived her life in a fishbowl yet she was shrouded in mystery. She was the epitome of style, poise, grace, and femininity, but her lifelong silence in front of the media has left many unanswered questions.

In this juicy yet reverential examination of her life, Eve Pollard's insight into what made America's most admired woman tick is blended into a page-turning, believable thriller. Starting from the somber days following the shocking assassination of Jackie's husband, President John F. Kennedy, Pollard explores the emotions that guided her existence as the world's most famous widow. Everything in Jackie's life is encompassed: the painful childhood that prepared her for the dual role of dramatic chatelaine of the White House and cheated wife; the hidden mental torture behind her marriage to Jack as she attempted to maintain her self-esteem—an anguish that doubled when his debauched love life became public after his death. To cope, Jackie developed a self-defense system to deal with the friends and family who were revealed as the willing helpers in her late husband's constant quest for new sexual partners. And, finally, she used different methods from sunglasses to psychiatry, from remarriage to realpolitik to protect herself and her precious children.

With brilliant storytelling, Pollard, one of the former First Lady's first biographers, entangles Jackie during her early days as a senator's wife in the complex world of espionage with startling and thrilling consequences after the tragic murder of her husband. Pollard's wealth of information on the adored Jackie produces a captivating and realistic tale that both surprises and entertains.

About the Author:

Eve Pollard has had a long and successful career in both television and print journalism. She made her mark in the United States as launch editor in chief of American Elle, and makes frequent appearances on the Today show and MSNBC. She is one of the few women to have edited two British national newspapers. She lives in London.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this shameless thriller, British tabloid journalist Pollard, the author of the biography Jackie, presents Jackie Kennedy as nave and insecure even before she's rocked by JFK's assassination, her family's abrupt departure from the White House and the growing revelations about her late husband's dalliances. As Jackie struggles to regain her balance, the suicide of Marilyn Monroe (Pollard transposes this event to after JFK's death) sets off a new round of revelations. The CIA cynically exploits Jackie, using her as a source for intelligence gathered during her dinner parties and even encouraging her involvement with Aristotle Onassis in hopes of forwarding plans of their own. A flimsy plot develops only after the author has squeezed dry Jackie's extended period of mourning. Readers who enjoy historical personages cast in an unflattering, unsavory or unappealing light will be most rewarded.
