The National Book Award winner from the #1 New York Times bestselling author is now in Berkley trade for the first time—and celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The talents he nurtured became worldwide literary legends—among them, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Thomas Wolfe. But Maxwell Perkins remained a mystery, a backstage presence who served these authors not only as editor extraordinaire but also as critic, psychoanalyst, father-confessor, and devoted friend. But who really was Maxwell Perkins? “Now the mystery has been solved, in A. Scott Berg's exhaustive, penetrating, and wholly satisfying biography” (Miami Herald).

New York Times Book Review
