An intimate look into the world of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis -- from the people who knew her best
In As We Remember Her, Carl Sferrazza Anthony, a historian of first ladies, paints the most personal, revealing portrait of Jackie to date -- one that shows her not in the shadow of her famous husbands or frozen in the light of flashbulbs but as she viewed herself over the years and as she was known by those closest to her.
To understand Jackie on her own terms, Anthony conducted exhaustive interviews with an impressive collection of Jackie's friends, family members, and colleagues -- many of whom speak here about her publicly for the first time -- and drew upon rarely published but quite revealing autobiographical accounts. Those interviewed include Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Ted Kennedy, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Joan Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, former senator John Glenn, Pamela Harriman, Kitty Carlisle Hart, Gloria Steinem, Yusha Auchincloss, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., John Kenneth Galbraith, Robert McNamara, Ted Sorenson, Pierre Salinger, Rose Styron, former senator Claiborne Pell, and George Plimpton. And from previously sealed oral histories housed in the Kennedy Library, we hear from Jackie's mother, Janet Auchincloss, and lifetime confidante, Nancy Tuckerman, among others.
With never-before-seen family photographs and letters throughout, Carl Sferrazza Anthony has created a beautiful tribute to the private woman who forever captured the world's attention.
