ONASSIS: An Extravagant Life by Frank Brady

ONASSIS: An Extravagant Life

Email this review


Onassis the business-whiz kid. Onassis the very young lover, the adept, the connoisseur. Onassis and the sack of Smyrna. Onassis: resentful, revengeful son. Onassis on the doorstep, with the finance minister, in high society. Onassis and the long-term tanker contracts. Onassis vs. Niarchos. Onassis, uncrowned king of Monte Carlo. Onassis' war with Peru. Onassis aboard the Christina. Onassis and Ingebord, Tina, Maria, Jackie . . . Onassis the desolate tycoon. All the old anecdotes, legends, news clips, press quotes, and whatnot are reassembled for a light-romantic run-through-mercifully brief by comparison with the Fraser opus (below) but also, by comparison, incomplete.
