Description
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis never wrote a memoir, but she revealed much of herself through the nearly 100 books she brought into print during the last two decades of her life as an editor at Viking and Doubleday. Biographer William Kuhn explores this significant period to reveal both the serious and the mischievous woman underneath the public image, giving us a Jackie who sits on her office floor laying out illustrations, flies to California to persuade Michael Jackson to write his autobiography, and helps to shape stories that spoke to her strongly.

"Unexpectedly and intelligently dishy.... In the end, this is quite a fascinating portrait of a complex woman, who had the interests and enthusiasms of her class and was allowed to indulge those passions with singular force and focus."Boston Globe

"William Kuhn reveals the Jackie I knew as a person and professional: serious, smart, intuitive about ideas and aesthetics, but also down to earth in the sense of understanding the potential audience for a book. In Reading Jackie I learned so much about her I didn't know, and Kuhn tells the story with such flowing grace of phrase and structure. A splendid work."Bill Moyers

"Jackie appears (as she was) a well-liked, respected colleague, often slyly funny and not given to showboating.... If we're going to have a myth, why not one with her nose in a book?"Washington Post
