Product Details


“An intimate, episodic narrative . . . Tripp’s wonderful, pointillistic skill with physical description and the deft, empathetic leaps she takes—jumping off from letters, contemporary memoirs and photographs snapped of the former first lady—gives ‘Jackie’ undeniable emotional punch. . . . Tripp’s book stands out for its psychological acuity . . . notable for its admirable emphasis on the intelligence and grace of this valiant American woman.”—The Washington Post

“Readers will devour this richly-detailed novel about the heart and soul of the most famous woman of the twentieth century.”—Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of California Golden

“What a wondrous accomplishment Jackie is. I would say the tale feels as if Dawn Tripp took dictation straight from her subject, except that would diminish the work and skill underlying every word of this hypnotic, intelligent, deeply felt accounting of what it may have been like to be the woman who never wanted to be the myth.”—Therese Anne Fowler, New York Times bestselling author of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald

“In her lyrical fever dream of a novel, Tripp offers a glimpse into the heart and soul of a thoughtful, brilliant woman who reluctantly stepped into the spotlight and was dogged by tragedy before ultimately coming into her own. From its gripping opening scene to the final page, I found myself entranced by Tripp’s prose and barely holding back tears. . . . Electrifying.”—Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Spectacular

“Society Bride. Mother. Fashion Plate. First Lady. Saint. Curse. I relished each page of this gorgeous, poetic, and piercing journey into the depths of an iconic woman’s heart, mind, and soul.”—Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author of Finding Margaret Fuller

“The reason we read historical fiction is because sometimes the facts just aren’t enough. A brilliant, beautiful book like Dawn Tripp’s Jackie touches the soul in ways conventional biographies can’t. I devoured this novel and felt the power of history and a remarkable woman.”—Chris Bohjalian, New York Times bestselling author of The Princess of Las Vegas

“Meticulously researched and lyrically written . . . A must-purchase.”Library Journal, starred review

“Expert and insightful . . . a requisite addition to the Jackie canon.”Booklist, starred review

“Luminous . . . a dazzling portrait of a woman growing beyond the myth that often held her captive.”—Shelf Awareness, starred review

“Ethereal . . . An elegiac and meticulously crafted ode to a still somewhat mysterious figure.”Kirkus Reviews

“Tripp brings Jackie and Jack’s romance to life through carefully crafted scenes, and offers a humanizing portrayal of Jackie’s complex love for her husband. Camelot devotees, take note.”Publishers Weekly
