History remembers Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as the consummate first lady, the nation's tragic widow, the tycoon's wife, and, of course, the quintessential embodiment of elegance. Her biographers, however, skip over just as equally an important stage in her life: her nearly twenty year long career as a book editor. "Jackie as Editor", 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 was one of her authors and 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 centuries most enduring subjects of fascination through a new angle: her previously untouted skill 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 fulfilment through her creative career during book publishing's legendary Golden Age.

Summary: " Jackie as Editor is a fascinating insider account of her fulfilling final years as a book editor in publishing. A must for Jackie fans." ---Sarah Bradford, author of America 's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis , Lucrezia Borgia: Life, Love, and Death in Renaissance Italy, and Diana "For Jackie Kennedy Onassis, the role of editor was just another version of her role as America's muse. She created the Camelot story in the JFK histories, and years later she wrought the same magic upon the books she edited. I kept wondering as I read Greg Lawrence's book what Mrs. O would have made of this delicious biography. This is a great story about a woman who had everythingmen, money, powerand all she wanted was more to read. I bet she would have loved Jackie as Editor . Every book lover and fan of Jackie will be caught in its magic." ---Harriet Rubin, author of The Princessa: Machiavelli for Women and Dante in Love: The World's Greatest Poem and How It Made History "One of Jacqueline Onassis's authors dishes kindly on her impressive editorial record . [and] fleshes out the editorial career of the enigmatic icon who was the subject of inflated tabloid coverage throughout much of her life yet who proved in her later years to be a surprisingly humble, hardworking team player, first at Viking, then Doubleday. . . . Lawrence lets rip the first-person reminiscences from those who knew and worked with her . . . [and] demonstrates how Onassis grew in confidence and professional stature in promoting books and authors she truly cared about. Chatty without being vulgar, a deeply admiring portrait of a lady the world is just now getting to know." -- Kirkus Reviews. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0312591934
