Description and Biographies

Subtitle: The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

New York Times Bestselling Author

    Written by one of the authors Jackie edited, is the first book to focus 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.
     Greg Lawrence, who had three of his books edited by Jackie, draws from interviews with more than 120 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 untold skills in the career she chose.
     Over the last third of her life, Jackie would master a new industry, weather a very public professional scandal and shepherd over a hundred books through the increasingly corporate halls of Viking and Doubleday.     Away from the public eye, Jackie quietly defined life on her own terms.
    
Jackie as Editor gives intimate new insights into the life of a complex and enigmatic woman who found fulfillment through her creative career during book publishing’s legendary golden age.

     Kirkus Reviews:
"One of Jacqueline Onassisauthors dishes kindly on her impressive editorial record...Chatty without being vulgar, a deeply admiring portrait of a lady the world is just now getting to know."

Greg Lawrence
