Thanks 🙏 @putnambooks for the bookmail! #partner . . ABOUT THE EDITOR From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a novel about a struggling writer who gets his big break, with a little help from the most famous woman in America. 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… From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a funny, poignant, and highly original novel about an author whose relationship with his very famous book editor will change him forever–both as a writer and a son. . . So.. who thinks this book sounds really interesting? And hello.. Jackie O?! Color me very intrigued! . . #bibliophile #book #booksofig #bookstagram

  2. Sorry for the rough week. I hope you get to have a fun weekend.
    I loved The Dry! Recently finished The Lost Man by the same author.
    The Escape Room was very different than I expected, and The Girl He Used to Know really surprised me. Would love for you to check out my reviews of those books!

    • My mom got some not great health news and it’s just been a time getting to doctors, etc.

      I can’t wait to try The Dry! I signed up for The Escape Room blog tour and I will DEF check out your reviews ASAP!
