Editorial Reviews

Review

“Where Taraborrelli excels is in excavating the personal histories of the three women and how they were forever shadowed by painful episodes in their lives. [The Bush women] created a singular, admirable legacy, and this book portrays them as genuine, struggling human beings.” ―Washington Post

“Bestselling celebrity biographer Taraborrelli engagingly presents the background and stories of First Ladies Barbara and Laura, as well as Barbara’s mother-in-law Dorothy Walker Bush…[Grace & Steel] portrays the women of the Bush family as far more interesting, and occasionally more ambitious, than the men.” ―Library Journal

“A unique and colorful look at one of America’s most powerful political families.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Taraborrelli gives the Bushes the royal treatment...A glossy dissection of the women members of a family that has loomed large over decades of U.S politics.” ―Kirkus Reviews

Praise for The Kennedy Heirs:

“Leaves no stone unturned as it retraces the lives of the Kennedy children.” ―Hollywood Reporter, “Hollywood’s Top 10 Beach Reads”

“Taraborrelli has become a leading Kennedy historian…an authoritative, irresistible page-turner.” ―Shelf Awareness

"Kennedy followers will be intrigued by this absorbing narrative of the dynasty's continuing hold on American life." ―Library Journal (starred)

"A dishy group portrait...Kennedy worshippers―and haters―will feast on the juicy details in Taraborrelli’s soap opera." ―Publishers Weekly

"In this sprawling post-Camelot account, Taraborrelli details the lives of the third generation―the grandchildren of Joe and Rose Kennedy―as they have tried to live up to Kennedy values…No scandal or luxurious dining room goes overlooked. Kennedy die-hards will love it.” ―Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Jackie, Janet, and Lee (currently being developed for TV by Tomorrow Studios)

“Riveting [and] deliciously readable.” ―New York Times Book Review

“Revealing...Taraborrelli explores the complicated relationship between Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, her mother Janet Lee Auchincloss, and her sister, Princess Lee Radziwill.” ―People Magazine, "Best Books About the Kennedy Family"

"Taraborrelli takes an intimate look at the sisters’ complicated relationship with [Aristotle Onassis], and reveals for the first time what really happened when Lee learned her sister was marrying Onassis five years after John F. Kennedy’s death." ―Harper's Bazaar

"Taraborrelli captures the glamorous, tragic, seductive and completely absorbing world of the Kennedys and those who married them...irresistible, intimate and revealing." ―Shelf Awareness

“Taraborrelli’s gossipy narrative revels in luxurious decor, stunning outfits, and soap-operatic fights in this entertaining saga of how wealthy, fashionable women got that way.” ―Publishers Weekly

“A narrative about money and the seemingly unlimited power that goes with it...The aura of Camelot lives on in a book for Kennedy completists and those who enjoy tales of the rich and powerful.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Engrossing...a voyeuristic look into a world of patrician privilege.” ―Library Journal
