The Editor Book Description :

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.

  • Publisher : Author House

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Book Description :

"I have known Nagindas for more than 32 years. When I first met him in the early 1980s I was a newly qualified accountant, and Nagindas had already been in practice for more than 15 years. At the time he had just returned from a stint of work in the Middle East, and since I was contemplating going to the Middle East for work also, he was a source of much advice and guidance, and indeed, he was a kind of role model to me--he inspired me to achieve his level of attainment. Since I returned to the UK in the early 2000s, Nagindas has acted as my accountant (as I have moved away from the world of accounting and auditing). The last 15 years has been the time when I have come to know Nagindas at a much closer, professional and personal, level. Professionally, I would say that he is a competent and thorough accountant with integrity and always has the best interests of his clients at heart. I have found that he does not panic in crisis situations--his approach to crisis management is to always act in a cool and calm manner. On any particular aspect involving accounting, auditing or taxation matter, he first develops deep understanding of the subject matter--he does not comment until he has all the facts--and when he does, he goes to the 'crux of the matter'--this is reflected in one of the companies he has set up At a personal level--Nagindas is approachable and jovial--and humorous at times--many a times I can think of examples where his particular take on a matter was accompanied by humorous anecdotes which made a lot of sense and captured the essence of the subject or idea being discussed. I personally think this is reflected in some of the 'Letters to the Editor' that he has written to newspapers over the last decade and a half." S. B. K.

The Editor s Introduction Book Description :

Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president. Also known as "Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf," it represented Eliot's belief that a basic liberal education could be gleaned by reading from an anthology of works that could fit on five feet of bookshelf. Volume L features Eliot's introduction, a reader's guide, and the complete indexes for the entire collection: an index to the first lines of every piece of verse, a general index, and a chronological index.
