Max Perkins by A Scott Berg

Book Description

Now the Major Motion Picture "Genius," Starring Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Jude Law. The National Book Award winner from Pulitzer-Prize winning author A. Scott Berg. The talents he nurtured were known worldwide: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Wolfe, and numerous others. But Maxwell Perkins remained a mystery, a backstage presence who served these authors not only as editor but also as critic, career manager, moneylender, psychoanalyst, father-confessor, and friend. This outstanding biography, a winner of the National Book Award, is the first to explore the fascinating life of this genius editor "extraordinare" in both the professional and personal domains. It tells not only of Perkin s stormy marriage, endearing eccentricities, and secret twenty-five-year romance with Elizabeth Lemmon, but also of his intensely intimate relationships with the leading literary lights of the twentieth century. It is, in the words of "Newsweek," an admirable biography of a wholly admirable man. "
