Quick post today--
Here's a page I found that I thought summarizes the career of Max Perkins succinctly. Ever since I've become familiar with Perkins, I have had a deeper appreciation for the role of an editor. Why is it that their names don't appear more prominently on a title page? When you re-read you favorite book again, take time to think about the editor who helped take the author's brainchild of a first draft and turn it into the masterpiece that you enjoy (sometimes over and over again.)
Enjoy your week!
