Now this is grading on a curve. From a New York Times article on competing books about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis‘s tenure as a book editor — during which she published such important tomes as Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker — comes this wondrous anecdote from her fellow editor Nan Talese:
Ms. Talese said she recognized her office colleague’s “wicked sense of humor.” “She got into the elevator one day, and someone said, ‘Oh, you’re Jackie Onassis!’ And she said, ‘No I’m not.’ ”
Oh, my sides! How wicked! What a sense of humor!
