As Diana DuBois demonstrates in this unauthorized biography, the patterns of sibling competition formed in childhood would subtly influence Lee Radziwill throughout her life. Never quite as graceful in the spotlight as Jackie, Lee made up the difference with glitter and glamour, finding husbands, relationships and lovers among the international jet set. She was first married to Michael Canfield, rumoured to be the bastard child of British royalty, then to Prince Stanislas Radziwill - real royalty in exile - and finally to director Herbert Ross

It's old, and I had to order it in paperback, but, in my opinion, this is one of the best books on the Bouvier sisters ever written. Ms. Dubois gathered quotes and anecdotes from practically everyone Radziwill knew in her lifetime. Universally disliked, Radziwill is an aristocratic gold-digger extraordinaire and when she marries Herbert Ross the reader finds out the lengths to which Radziwill will go to in order to finance her lavish lifestyle. I recently read an interview with Radziwill where she trashed the memory of Ross, her last husband and I thought, "Par for the course." He died shortly after their divorce without hearing from her, except to squabble over a house in East Hampton. She knew he was dying and she figured she'd wait it out, thereby robbing Ross' children of the sole remaining asset of his estate. What a shameless, sad person she is. She lacked the warmth that her sister had, as well as the charisma. Jackie, a compassionate woman, cut her sister completely out of her will when she died, though, interestingly, she set up trust funds for Radziwill's children. That, alone, should tell you the type of person Lee Radziwill is.

Amazing this woman could go through virtually her entire life and not learn or grow - pitiful really. Experiencing short bursts of enthusiasm...then deciding being a partner, spouse, mother, actress, decorator, friend or even a human being was just - well - just too much effort...easier to just make a fast grab for the cash, right?!$$?! Just thankful she got old enough to be obsolete along with her warped sense of values and entitlements. This book took me a while to get through but should have been a fast read. It's not the author's fault. She did a good job with the subject of this biography - it's just that the whole story was peat-repeat-peat-repeat. I think she gave the subject a fair shake and even went to great lengths to objectively depict this poor lady. For that alone I could give this book a good rating. Problem was...I was waiting for some form of redemption toward the end. Didn't happen. Felt so sorry for her son and daughter - OMG. This individual may retain enough of her millions to see her through to the end, but don't be expecting her to endow a research hospital or even her local food bank...she'll be too preoccupied with what she's wearing to THE END - period.

This woman takes the phrase "self absorbed" to a new level--or perhaps I should say low. The way she uses and discards people when they are no further use to her is disturbing. Her greed is boundless. She is more shallow than a wading pool. People speak of her in this book, but I don't think she has any friends and how could she? She uses people like I use paper towels, useful then discard.

If she has any self awareness she must be one sad, lonely old lady.

This was an informative book on Lee Radziwill, Jackie's younger sister. Bred to be a fortune hunter, Lee married several times, had many affairs and lived a lavish lifestyle. Yet her life was filled with tumult and despair.. Married to a "Prince," jet setting with Truman Capote,reveling in celebrity, sleeping with Onassis on his yacht( before she introduced him to Jackie,) Lee craved the thrills and lifestyle of the rich and glamorous. Yet something always seems to have been missing in Lee's life. She seemed to have been missing a part of her genuine self, something she would rarely show; then turn it on and off at whim.
It truly broke my heart the way she treated her daughter Tina and how she neglected her emotionally. I wish the book had more of a focus and connection to the deeper, emotional aspects of Lee's life. Many times the author would bring up Lee's feelings about Jackie, her mother and children and this provided a broader understanding of Lee's psyche. However, at times there was so much information about Lee's career as a decorator and actress that seemed to go on and on, and wasn't as interesting.

Excellent acct of Lee's life and her lovers. Detailed psychological analysis of why Lee is wh o she is.

Great book full of gossip and interesting facts about the subject. My God, her life must have been boring! Unlike her sister Lee didn't find a vocation not even late in life and sort of drifted through luxurious maze without direction or joy. She cone off as pretty self entered, maybe that was the problem? Here's a person who could have anything but because she couldn't decide what it was she should've had Lee ended up burning through life. I had a hard find finishing it it was that boring but overall it's a good read if one likes biographies of famous women.

All the hype about the Kennedy woman and this book shows how shallow they are..and so much greed masked as creative people...Never will I think they were so loving...
I love this book. It gives a true picture on the life of Lee Radziwell. And as much as I love this book, I walked away not liking Lee at all. What a Bitch!! I can see why Jackie didn't leave her a cent in her will. She was a horrible mother, wife, and friend. The only thing she had going for her was her beauty (and beautiful she was), and that her sister was the most famous woman in the world at that time. I knew that Jackie didn't leave her anything in her will -- and I couldn't understand why -- after reading this book now I know why. Great weekend read (we're going through a snow strorm right now in Boston so it was a great time to read the book).
