Jackie as Editor
The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy OnassisBook - 2011 | 1st ed.
History remembers Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as the consummate first lady, the nation's tragic widow, the millionaire's wife, and, of course, the quintessential embodiment of elegance. Her biographers, however, skip over an equally important stage in her life: her nearly twenty-year-long career as a book editor. This book focuses exclusively on this remarkable period. At age 46, 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.--From publisher description.
