Jackie O, working class hero


Sabiam que Jackie O foi book editor? Eu não sabia.

Está aqui um de muitos artigos sobre esses anos da sua vida e sobre uma polémica em que se envolveu. Saltei a parte da polémica e li só as coisas giras. No fim, uma passagem ainda ecoa:

Former Doubleday executive and senior editor Betty Prashker described these changes in publishing for Al Silverman, who chronicled the period in his book The Time of Their Lives: “In the beginning, in the forties and fifties, the editor was at the top of the pyramid, supported by the administration, the art department, the sales department, the promotion department. There was basically no business department. But gradually over the years that pyramid ended, and the editors wound up at the bottom.”
