Inhaltsangabe: A revealing look at the private life of America's most adored first couple -- by an international best-selling author.
Theirs was one of the great love stories of our time. Indeed, John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, captured and have held the world's imagination as perhaps no other husband and wife in modern history. Yet despite the billions of words that have been written about this most golden of couples, the true nature of their relationship has been veiled in mystery and mystique.
Until now. With stunning information from important sources, some of whom were sworn to secrecy until Jackie's death in May 1994, and previously sealed archival material, international best-selling author Christopher Anderson examines their unique partnership and the courage, grace, and humor that defined it.
Jack and Jackie is packed with startling revelations about the secrets and events that shaped their lives, including:
--Never before known details of their courtship, from being caught by the police while necking in Jack's car to a behind-the-scenes look at their spectacular wedding
--The world-famous women whose romances with JFK have previously been unreported, including Audrey Hepburn, Lee Remick and Sophia Loren
-- Jackie's brief romance with William Holden, and at a low point in the marriage, with top Kennedy Administration official Roswell Gilpatric
--New details about Jack's medical condition, and how the disturbing truth was concealed from the press and public
--Their concerns about fertility, and Jackie's troubled pregnancies; the way Caroline and John Jr. transformed their lives -- and the touching story of how the death of their infant son Patrick brought Jack and Jackie closer than they had ever been, only months before Dallas.
Sympathetic yet revealing, Jack and Jackie is more than just a portrait of a marriage. It goes beneath the surface to expose the complex emotional dynamics that fueled one of America's greatest relationships.

Rezension: Christopher Andersen chronicles the childhoods of both Jack Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy and then examines the fabled marriage--a great American love story, as he calls it. Andersen suggests that had it not been for reasons of personal gain, the two would never have married. She would never have married him if he hadn't been rich, and he would never have married her if his father hadn't insisted for career reasons. Andersen, who has also authored books on Madonna and Mick Jagger, contends that Jackie's sheer glamour and poise helped maintain the illusion, even in the most difficult of times.
