Steven Rowley - The Editor


A Funny & Poignant Novel About an Author's Relationship With His Editor, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing

Steven Rowley is the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus, which has been translated into nineteen languages. He will discuss and sign The Editor ($27.00 Putnam), 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 finally sells his novel to an editor at a major publishing house: none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. 

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...
