"Jackie Under My Skin "is a passionate investigation of the ways Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis transformed America's definition of celebrity, identity, and style. In a gallery of fantasies and tableaux, Wayne Koestenbaum explains the late first lady's hold on Americans by examining the myths and metaphors that we've attached to her. An exuberant paean to a great star, "Jackie Under My Skin" is also a meditation on fame, mortality, and the difficulty of defining desire.
