From her media canonization at the time of JFK's death to the rash of criticism provoked by her marriage to Onassis, Jackie has always managed to elude definition and has left us the legacy of a legend. In this take on his subject, Wayne Koestenbaum interprets the cultural impact of this public figure. He considers her status as a gay icon, and compares it with those of other divas such as Maria Callas and Liz Taylor. Koestenbaum derives axioms from Jackie's wardrobe, teases home truths from her White House memoranda, and attaches symbolic significance to the chic and the tragic in Jackie's life.
