THE SUMMER READ
Selected by Christopher Niquet.
“Jackie Oh!” by Kitty Kelley.
“Published in 1978, at the height of Jackie fever, this book chronicles it all: the socially impeccable childhood, the teenage years at Miss Porter, the marriage of convenience
into the Kennedy family, the presidential years, the extravagant lifestyle and overspending of the Onassis years and finally the reinvention of the Martha’s Vineyard and Manhattan years.
Illustrated by dozens of dynamic Ron Galella photographs that display both the bizarre behaviors as well as the captivating charm of America’s most loved First Lady.
Its author, the glamorous Kitty Kelley, worked as a press secretary for Senator Eugene McCarthy and wrote for the Washington Post, the New York Times
as well as Cosmopolitan (in its Helen Gurley Brown days) and interviewed close to 300 people off-the-record for this gossipy book.”
Christopher Niquet is an author and co-founder of 65CPW a portrait portfolio about people and their relationship with New York City.
In 2020 he will be launching a limited edition book publishing company as well as a perfume with fragrance company Régime des Fleurs.
