Surprising story of a real working Editor,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Jackie as Editor: The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (Hardcover)
I remember hearing about Jackie taking on the job as an editor back in the late 70's. I had no idea how she built a prolific and meaningful career in publishing. She had a strong eye for ideas that could become successful books. She also was not shy about line editing. She worked extremely hard with her authors, and pushed them to produce a high quality product. Colleagues were initially overwhelmed with her presence, but eventually treated her as any other co-worker. She was a prolific editor, and Lawrence has a way of making it all so interesting. Jackie worked all the way up to her untimely death. I didn't think I could respect this woman anymore than I already did - but this lifted my respect to the highest level possible.
