This is an auction for AMERICA'S QUEEN: JACQUELINE KENNEDY ONASSIS by Sarah Bradford. review:

"FIVE STARS!! This is a solid biography of a complex woman. Bradford does her usual stellar job of peeking behind the curtain of mystery and into the lives of the rich and famous. Bradford takes us from Jackie's earliest years as the adored eldest child of a wayward father; to the White House as the politically advantageous mate to an unfaithful John F Kennedy; to Greece as the trophy wife of Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis; and finally to the freedom and excitement of New York during the 1970s and 1980s. Many of the society wives who moved in Jackie's circle reported how possessive and flirtatious she was with their husbands. Far from being in love with Onassis (who had been having an affair with her sister), Jackie married him for the security his vast fortune could afford. Jackie was far more interested in championing the arts (her helping to start the foundation to restore the White House, her involvement in the campaign to save Grand Central Station), than in humanitarian and charitable causes. This book could well have been subtitled "Iron Butterfly," as Jackie repeatedly gets what she wants (money, donations of antiquities to the White House, clothing) by being manipulative and irresistible at the same time. Yet despite not being the idealized version of herself we've all recognized over the years, Jackie is a fully-realized person in this book. The woman who stated her ambition in her Farmington yearbook as "Never to be a housewife" certainly succeeded in that goal."
