THE EDITOR How Publishing Legend Judith Jones Shaped Culture in America

by | Read by Eunice Wong

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

This biographical audiobook is an intimate portrait of Judith Jones, the legendary editor at Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., for five decades. She oversaw the publication of authors Anne Tyler, Sylvia Plath, John Updike, and other literary icons. She is perhaps best known for publishing a new line of popular cookbooks, most famously those of Julia Child. Award-winning narrator Eunice Wong chronicles Jones's life, capturing her strength of character, sense of purpose, and personal warmth. Wong's delivery is crisp, clear, and pleasing to the ear. Hearing about the many cookbooks that changed how Americans prepared meals in the late twentieth century is both interesting and inspirational. Listeners will no doubt want to search for some of these treasured Knopf titles. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2024]
