Product description

Review

“This lavish portrait plumbs the tensions between bookish, regal Jackie and “lady-in-waiting” Lee, who sought the limelight only to be eclipsed by her iconic sister.” (O magazine)

“Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger paint a lush picture of the complicated relationship between sisters Jackie Onassis and Lee Radziwill.... Gossipy gems are studded throughout.” (Vanity Fair)

“Don’t be too put off by the salacious title – though the co-writers definitely don’t avoid gossipy material, their book is no hatchet job, and actually draws from extensive interviews with Radziwill, who’s now 84 years old. The result is a lively and highly entertaining profile of two dynamic and super-stylish sibling-rivals.” (BBC America)

“[A] taut and fascinating work.” (In Style)

The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters is journalism. . . . it is a tale for the curious, with an excellent index allowing readers to retrace their steps as the plot thickens.” (East Hampton Star)

“To-be-devoured-like-a-box-of-chocolates, Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberg’s juicy page-turner, The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters is. . . . a poignant account.” (Wag Mag)

“A complex portrait of Jackie and Lee Bouvier and how their lives and loves defined them and their relationship as sisters.” (Shelf Awareness)

“One would think there couldn’t be much more to say about Jackie Kennedy and Lee Radziwill, but The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters proves otherwise. So many gossipy stories and recollections fill this breezy and entertaining, yet informative, read.” (Bookreporter.com)

“Readers drawn to the Kennedy mystique will savor this intricate chronicle rife with romance, tragedy, and surprising details, such as that Jackie may have helped choose JFK’s paramours. The authors provide an intimate view of two sisters, both famous in their own rights.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Suffice it to say, more than 50 years on, explorations of the truths and fictions of Camelot continue to mesmerize.” (Kirkus Reviews)
