I’m looking forward to this movie — Duos of 'Genius' — about legendary editor Maxwell Perkins and authors Thomas Wolfe, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway. Quote: “[Wolfe] was . . . famously undisciplined, turning in manuscripts in overflowing crates; his books came into being only with his editor’s perceptive eye, and steady, patient hand.” I have looked up to Maxwell Perkins for many years. But to imagine a movie made about a book editor? Even I would have laughed.
