Sam Kashner, author of The Fabulous Bouvier Sisters: The Tragic and Glamorous Lives of Jackie and Lee

When 64-year-old Jackie Kennedy Onassis died in her Fifth Avenue apartment, her younger sister Lee wept inconsolably. Then Jackie’s 38-page will was read. Lee discovered that substantial cash bequests were left to family members, friends and employees --- but nothing to her. "I have made no provision in this my Will for my sister, Lee B. Radziwill, for whom I have great affection, because I have already done so during my lifetime," read Jackie’s final testament.

Week of September 23, 2019

Paperback releases for the week of September 23rd include Kristin Hannah's New York Times bestseller and book club favorite, THE GREAT ALONE, in which a desperate family seeks a new beginning in the near-isolated wilderness of Alaska, only to find that their unpredictable environment is less threatening than the erratic behavior found in human nature; A SPARK OF LIGHT, Jodi Picoult's powerful and provocative novel about ordinary lives that intersect during a heart-stopping crisis; HOLY GHOST, the 11th installment in John Sandford's thriller series featuring Detective Virgil Flowers, who this time investigates a miracle --- and a murder; and THE FABULOUS BOUVIER SISTERS by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger, a poignant, evocative and wonderfully gossipy account of the two sisters who represented style and class above all else --- Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Lee Radziwill.
