Book Review: The Editor

It took me a week to read this. Not because I was bored, or it was slow, simply because I was savoring the words. I borrowed it from the library based on the description of Jackie Kennedy Onassis being “The Editor” in question. I’ve read quite a few books about the Kennedy family but almost none include this time period (the 90’s).

Too late I discovered that it is entirely fictional, I was already emotionally involved in the story. But, it could have a kernel of truth somewhere about her work ethic etc. and it was an excellent plot.

Fictional Jackie sounded like an excellent editor. She pushes James just enough to get him him to dig deeper into his autobiographical story, even though his Mother is still alive and will not like her story being told in a book.

After poking around the internet I see that this is going to be a movie!
