"Greek Fire: The Story of Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis," by Nicholas Gage. Knopf. 407 pages. $26.95. On July 22, 1959, a super-luxurious yacht set sail from Monte Carlo for a cruise that would take its passengers through the waters of the once-great empire known as Byzantium. The warships of that ancient state, writes Nicholas Gage, "were famous for bombarding enemy vessels with 'Greek fire' -- an incendiary mixture of mysterious compositions that engulfed and destroyed everything it touched."

Friends said they were like an old married couple, comfortable and serene as they strolled through snowy Central Park or lolled by the shores of Martha's Vineyard on long summer weekends.In fact, when Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis died late Thursday night of cancer, the official statement named three "family members" who were by her bedside: her two children, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg and John F. Kennedy Jr., and Maurice Tempelsman, the man who has been like a husband to her for the last decade and a half in all but name.

Don't think you'll get a clear peek at the memory-impaired days of Ronald Reagan in the Newsweek cover story for Oct. 2. Based mostly on written comments by Nancy Reagan and interviews with Patti Davis and Michael Reagan, the article is severely limited by the family's "pact of silence" about Mr. Reagan's condition, and it dwells mostly on mom and daughter. The current life of the Reagan clan is portrayed as a family-values "happy ending," with all the warring family members lovingly reconciled.

If it weren't for the fact that, following her death from breast cancer in 1974, Jacqueline Susann was cremated, she'd be spinning in her grave right now. (Maybe her ashes are whooshing around in tornado-like fury.) That's because "Isn't She Great?" -- a biopic of the celebrated actress-turned-author of such sex, drugs and schlock classics as "Valley of the Dolls" and "The Love Machine" -- has to be among the worst movies ever made. It's one thing to pay homage to the junk fiction -- and subsequent junk films -- that the Philadelphia-born Susann spawned.

Are you ready for the most bizarre, cartoonish Marilyn Monroe you ever saw telling John F. Kennedy how "penetrating" she finds him and calling his wife, Jacqueline, a "bitch"?Are you ready to see Jackie angrily waving another woman's black silk panties in President Kennedy's face while he's on the phone trying to defuse a school desegregation crisis in the South?Are you ready for another gratuitous, graphic re-creation -- this one featuring a close-up of blood spurting from the throat -- of Kennedy's assassination in Dallas?

Chicago.--The genuine grief expressed by people over the death of Jacqueline Onassis shows what a large part she played in their lives. Something will be missing now, and they lament that fact.It is hard to define, in mere logic, what that something was. Mrs. Onassis did not do anything remarkable.
