More About Max Perkins by A. Scott Berg
 
 
 
Overview
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.-
