Jackie as Editor
The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy OnassisBook - 2011
An absorbing chronicle of a much overlooked chapter in Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis's life, her nineteen year editorial career. Her biographers, however, skip over this important stage in her life: her nearly twenty year long career as a book editor. This book focuses exclusively on this remarkable woman's editorial career. At the age of forty six, one of the most famous women in the world went to work for the first time in twenty two years. The author, who had three of his books edited by Jackie, draws from interviews with more than 125 of her former collaborators and acquaintances in the publishing world to examine one of the twentieth century's most enduring subjects of fascination through a new angle: her previously untouted skill in the career she chose.
