Book Review: The Editor by Steven Rowley

The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date April 2nd, 2019

After years of trying to make it as a writer in 1990s New York City, James Smale finally sells his novel to an editor at a major publishing house: none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Jackie–or Mrs. Onassis, as she’s known in the office–has fallen in love with James’s candidly autobiographical novel, one that exposes his own dysfunctional family. But when the book’s forthcoming publication threatens to unravel already fragile relationships, both within his family and with his partner, James finds that he can’t bring himself to finish the manuscript. 

Jackie and James develop an unexpected friendship, and she pushes him to write an authentic ending, encouraging him to head home to confront the truth about his relationship with his mother. Then a long-held family secret is revealed, and he realizes his editor may have had a larger plan that goes beyond the page… 

Book Review: The Editor by Steven Rowley

Five stars for this beautiful story of mothers and sons. The Editor is about finding oneself & overcoming the things that have been standing in our way for years. Not to mention, there’s the iconic brilliance of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. What a truly special book!! The Editor is full of heart and humor and one I’ll not soon forget. I’m eager to see what Steven Rowley gives us next.
