Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis never wrote a memoir, but she told her life story and revealed herself in intimate ways through the nearly 100 books she brought into print as an editor at Viking and Doubleday.  Many Americans regarded Jackie as the paragon of grace, but few knew that she was a remarkably perceptive and sensitive editor with a regard for writing and a sense of what makes writing good.

William Kuhn provides a behind-the-scenes look at her work. Based on archives and interviews with her authors, colleagues and friends Reading Jackie reveals the serious and the mischievous woman underneath the glamorous public image.
