Leafing through a wealth of private photo albums and personal archives, Lee Radziwill offers a unique perspective of happy times: from the first trip to Europe and the Bouvier sisters to fond memories of Christmas in Palm Beach with President Kennedy, from her years in London to summer days in Conca, Lee Radziwill has enjoyed a very colourful and successful life. She brings alive, with humor and feeling, privileged moments with family and friends. Happy Times is the credo of a lady who, having witnessed historical moments and shared the lives of characters struck by fate, has made the deliberate choice of only remembering what's beautiful. Through anecdotes and pictures, personal notes and drawings, Happy Times offers readers a very personal perspective on a highly publicized life. AUTHOR: Lee Radziwill is the younger sister of the late Jacqueline Onassis. They both attended Miss Porter's School, and after Lee graduated, the two girls travelled in Europe together. When Jackie became First Lady, her most trusted confidante was her sister, and they travelled together on both state visits and private vacations. Lee's second husband was the Polish prince Stanislaw Radziwill, with whom she had two children, Anthony and Anna Christina. Radziwill has been an interior design consultant and a public relations executive for Giorgio Armani, and she received the Legion d'Honneur from the French government in 2008. Radziwill leads a quiet life, dividing her time between Paris and New York City. 250 illustrations
