Inhaltsangabe: The talents Maxwell Perkins nurtured were known worldwide: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Wolfe among numerous others. But the man himself remained a mystery, a backstage presence who served these authors not only as editor but as critic, career manager, moneylender, psychoanalyst, confessor and friend. This outstanding biography, a winner of the National Book Award, is the first to explore the fascinating life of this editor extraordinaire in both professional and personal domains. It tells not only of Perkins' stormy marriage 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.

Rezension: A highly readable work of literary history. "The New York Times Book Review"
""
Berg has told this story unobtrusively and with great feeling, and he has (perhaps just in the nick of time) rescued Perkins from permanent obscurity. "The Atlantic"
[An] exhaustive, penetrating, and wholly satisfying biography...Scrupulous, thoughtful, touching, memorable, and eminently rewarding. Jonathan Yardley, "The Miami Herald"
Talented, intelligent, and marvelously researched...A work that does honor to the subject. "Chicago Tribune"

Berg s whole narrative is first-rate filled with humor and feeling. Max would have published it in a minute. "Newsweek"

Although Perkins would have been embarrassed by the attention, Berg s tribute would have touched him. "Time"
""
A book about Maxwell Perkins? Of course! Why didn t someone think of it before?...Berg has done very well...It s a fascinating and illuminating story. "Chicago Sun-Times"

As complete a Max Perkins as we will ever need. It s an extraordinary vivid portrait. Webster Schott, " The Washington Post Book World"
""
Perkins turns out to have been as fascinating, dark, complex, and sad as any of his golden boys. A lovely book about the age of giants and the extraordinary man in the shadows behind them. Russell Baker
Max Perkins was the best of the best. This book brings him back alive. Erskine Caldwell
