Praise for Kick Kennedy"It is Barbara Leaming's achievement to have coaxed some reticent upper-class Englishmen and Englishwomen--all now dead--into sharing their candid memories of Kick. The resultant book is supremely an exercise in European ancient-regime nostalgia--and therefore more strikingly original than yet another tome on the self-seeking Kennedys."--The Wall Street Journal"Biographer Leaming candidly demystifies the life of one of the least-known Kennedys and vividly illuminates the complex world of British aristocracy." --Booklist"The fascinating, little-known story of an unforgettable woman...Riveting." --Examiner.com "Barbara Leaming evokes the luminous spirit of Kick Kennedy." --Vanity Fair"The age of Downton Abbey offers fresh context for this story of American royalty and its more tradition-minded British counterpart." -Kirkus Reviews"The memories of Kennedy's contemporaries...bring to life Kick's effervescence...Leaming excels in providing a rich historical backdrop to Kick's story." --The Washington Post"Barbara Leaming reveals fresh insight into the Kennedy daughter who died in a plane crash." -People Magazine"Leaming, author of groundbreaking books about both John and Jacqueline Kennedy, delivers a vivid, sympathetic portrait of the irresistible charmer known to most as Kick." -Austin American-Statesman"An absolute must-read biography that flows like a richly woven novel." -The Knot"Poignant...Leaming ably intertwines Kennedy family history and English war history into a lively personal drama that is also an important historical record." -The Missourian"Leaming, a Kennedy scholar, has the distinct advantage over Byrne... Leaming's account is more nuanced, more authoritative, more compelling." -The Sydney Morning Herald"Barbara Leaming weaves a colorful, interesting tale...Masterfully written...I found myself intensely reading like there was no tomorrow." -momzinga.com"Barbara Leaming provides by far the more perspicacious and politically astute of the two books. Extensive interviews with surviving members of the Devonshire circle richly supplement the Kennedy archive to present a complex portrait of how English Protestant power and privilege came to admit this American Catholic during the social upheaval of the second World War." -The Irish Times"Leaming's huge amount of research made the story real...an impressive work." -Redding Record Searchlight Praise for Kick Kennedy It is Barbara Leaming s achievement to have coaxed some reticent upper-class Englishmen and Englishwomen all now dead into sharing their candid memories of Kick.

Reseña del editor:

Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy was the incandescent life-force of the Kennedy family. She was the Kennedy of Kennedys, sure of her privilege, magnetically charming and somehow not quite like anyone else on whatever stage she happened to grace. Kick swept into Britain's aristocracy, gloriously, exhilaratingly different in a world of sameness and similarity. Bestselling and award-winning biographer Barbara Leaming draws on her unique access to firsthand accounts, extensive conversations with many of the key players, and previously unseen sources to transport us to a world of immense wealth, arcane rituals and rules, glamour and tragedy that has now disappeared forever. This is the coming-of-age story of the female star of the Kennedy family, and ultimately a tragic, romantic story that will break your heart.
