TOUCHED BY THE SUN: MY FRIENDSHIP WITH JACKIE
by Carly Simon
I really enjoyed this unpretentious telling of the hitherto unknown curious friendship between Simon and Jackie O. The two had much in common: motherhood, homes on, and love of Martha's Vineyard, celebrity, and rewarding and heartbreaking marriages to compelling and complicated men. Their friendship plays out leisurely over lunches, movie nights, shared summer evenings with mutual friends. Ultimately, Jackie encourages and edits two of Simon's books. All in all, an engrossing and rewarding story. A chance to be a fly on a very interesting wall.
