It is so amazing how Carole Radziwill could tell this story in such an amazing, straight-forward manner never “dropping” names as she writes that Anthony’s “aunt” dies and it takes you a moment to realize she is writing about Jackie Kennedy.

I find it hard to feel entirely sympathetic toward a protagonist who’s a snob, no matter how tragic her narrative is.
