Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

You might think of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as a style icon, a gorgeous First Lady, and a patron of the arts, but here's something you might not have known: For many years toward the end of her life, Jackie O was a book editor. (I know, right?!) For two decades, she worked for Viking and then Doubleday, acquiring, editing, and championing books by such authors as Princess Grace of Monaco, Diana Vreeland, George Plimpton, and even Michael Jackson (she edited his 1988 autobiography, Moonwalk). A new tome explores Mrs. Kennedy's life through her books.
