Jackie O: Wouldn't Be Surprised
if Clare Booth Luce Were a Lesbian
There's at least one queer nugget of news in the just-released, elegantly hyped interviews with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis involving the author of "The Women" and I hope there are more to come. From the Independent:
Those women she dismissed almost childishly as sexually suspect were Madame Nhu, sister-in-law of the president of South Vietnam, and Clare Boothe Luce, a former member of Congress. "I wouldn't be surprised if they were lesbians," she is heard whispering in conspiratorial manner.
