Searching for Jackie



New Book(s)

What does a collection of your friends reveal about you? Might it say more than a collection of photos, or your bookshelf, or what the inside of your house looks like? Could you think of it as a history of your affections?


I've been writing up stories about the friends of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis whom I met 10 years ago while writing my first book on her, Reading Jackie. I'm planning an 8-part series of short ebooks on these people. They'll eventually become audiobooks, and, once they're all published, will be collected together as a paperback. Think of it as me searching for Jackie. I was trying to figure out what it meant when people told me things I didn't understand, or was too embarrassed to repeat, or had to censor from that first book.


Shorter versions of these stories have already appeared several different places, including one on Nancy Tuckerman in Vanity Fair and another called "The Intelligent Person's Guide to Jackie O." on Medium


If you want to be the first to know when the first of these new short pieces is ready, please sign up on my email list highlighted in blue at left. All our inboxes are too full already. So I'll save my messages until I have something important to share. Thank you!  Bill
