About This Item

New York: Grove Weidenfeld, 1989 Christina Onassis lived,she once said,in a world where everything shimmered.Not yet embarked on her playgirl path,not yet in possession of the fortune that would make her the richest woman on earth,the future beckoned brilliantly.She was seventeen years old,and she would never be happy again. The world followed the tragic tale of Christina Onassis:her childhood in a charmed world of pampered neglect,with her parent"s affection scrawled on postcards and wrapped in second-hand hugs from passing friends;her spoiled,beautiful mother"s quickie divorce and remarriage to an English peer,her father"s scandalous liaisons with Maria Callas and Jackie Kennedy;the violent deaths of her beloved aunt Eugenie Niarchos and her brother Alexander,the battle of wills with her father,and her escape into the international jet set;her inheritance of his empire,which she ruled with the ruthless verve of a true Onassis;and her own long odyssey in search of happiness,ending with sudden death in Argentina,away from her fourth husband and the child she loved so much. Christina"s story - a story of money,sex,drama and intrigue among the very rich - reached out to millions of people.Yet the woman herself,strong and passionate,remained a mystery. Dempster,the gossip columnist for the Daily Mail,knows her story intimately.His Heiress is compulsive reading,packed with new revelations.But it is more than simply an expose.It is a study of wealth and power,and of the woman who wielded both in a fierce hunt for love.s. 1st.US Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
