    review The Editor Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB The Editor45 starsSteven Rowley's The Editor really hit the spot for me It was utterly charming it had so much heart and it dealt with some of my favorite subjects—family dysfunction struggles with self confidence writing secrets and the relationships that crop up in the most unlikely of placesJames Smale has always dreamed of being a writer After having his first few short stories published he imagined the path to literary success would be easy But writing a novel never seemed to come easy and although he hoped inspiration would hit he wondered if he was destined to be one of those people whose early promise fizzled out Living in New York City in the early 1990s it seemed as if he was suited to random temp jobs than wearing the mantle of a writerThen he decided to write about what he knew better than anything—his relationship with his mother an enigmatic wo

    review The Editor Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB The EditorI actually suealed when I first read the synopsis for this one I thought it was such a clever idea for a historical fiction book and I was really impressed with the author's ability to think a little outside the box Instead of having a story revolve around Jackie Kennedy Onassis and her time as First Lady this book features a writer who receives uite the surprise when he finds out Mrs Onassis is going to be the editor for his book Her time working for a publishing house and the last few years of her life haven't been written about as much as some of the earlier periods of her life so I was excited to read this oneI wouldn't even say I'm a big fan of the Kennedy family but I do find th

    review The Editor Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB The EditorHow would you react if you show up at a meeting with a publisher and find out to your surprise that the editor is none other than Jackie Kennedy Onassis This is the situation James Smale finds himself in when the book opens It seems Jackie has fallen in love with his autobiographical novel based on his dysfunctional family and she a

    review The Editor Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB The EditorUnpublished author James Smale is star struck Who wouldn’t be When he finally secures a book deal his editor is none other than Mrs Jackie Onassis However there is one major snag Mrs Onassis is less than thrilled with the ending which she urges him to re write This leads James to confront and untangle the knot of his relationship with his mother Who among us doesn’t struggle with relationships James’ observations actions and revelations are sardonic droll and uite relatable even if you’ve never been a mother or a son Overall an agreeable novel that also provides a glimpse into the way authors and editors craft a finished book

    review The Editor Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB The EditorI had high hopes and high expectations for this book I loved the premise of the book and was interested to see how the author would portray Jackie Kennedy Onassis in her elusive later years and role as an editor coming full circle from her pre JFK days as a writer I thought the author did a really good job of imaginin

    review The Editor Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB The EditorThere are some books that start up out of the gate as gang busters and make you think that this book is one for you That is how this book began for me When I got to the fifty percent point I started to think oh no this book is sliding downhill but hoped that it would once again be the five star read it was in the beginning Unfortunately that didn't occur and as I continued to read I became and disappointedThe premise of a new author's book being edited by the indomitable Jacueline Kennedy Onasis was a draw into the story though of course not the main idea James Smale the author is a man who is initially elated and develops a relationship with Mrs Onassis Then however as we learn about James and his tenuous relationship to his mother and his doubts abo
