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.

"My goodness, Miss Donnelly, Maxwell Perkins was one of the worst businessmen who ever lived." Interview with Charles Scribner, Jr., Chairman of Scribner's, 1980 One of the many legends surrounding Scribner's editor, Maxwell Perkins (1884-1947) is that he was a terrible businessman. If so, how did he manage to get such classic work out of such volatile creative personalities as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway and Thomas Wolfe, among others? And, how did so many of his authors contribute to Scribner's financial success over the decades? Starting with the excellent biography, MAX PERKINS, EDITOR OF GENIUS, by A. Scott Berg, Dr. Kathleen Dixon Donnelly combined information from numerous sources, including several collections of letters, to determine what management skills Perkins used to motivate these three larger than life characters. Based on her thesis for her MBA at Duquesne University in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this version of MANAGER AS MUSE focuses on developing guidelines which today's managers of creative people can use in working with writers, artists, performers---any of those in the creative industries. The principles of management remain the same. What did Perkins do to keep these novelists writing? How much did he push? How much did he keep hands off? Through a detailed analysis of the relationships between Perkins and his three most well-known authors, MANAGER AS MUSE gives you insights in to how best to work with the creative people you manage to motivate them to achieve success.
