In his lively, informal, and extremely candid memoir of a lifetime spent among books and authors, Charles Scribner, Jr., offers an intimate view of a family--and family business--from his early childhood in the 1920s, when Max Perkins was editing Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Wolfe, through his classical studies at Princeton and cryptanalysis during WWII, which prepared him for taking the reins of Scribners in 1952 at age 30. 16-page photo insert.
