In a note written to Charles Scribner III after Perkins‘ death, Hemingway wrote, “One of my best and most loyal friends and wisest counsellors (sic) in life as well as in writing is dead. But Charles Scribner’s Sons are my publishers and I intend to publish with them for the rest of my life.” And he did, with the novels “Across the River and into the Trees” (1950) and the Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Old Man and the Sea” (1952) — the latter a major factor leading to Hemingway’s being awarded the 1954 Nobel Prize for literature — before intense pain, physical and psychological, led to his suicide in 1961.
Mr. Trogdon writes that “to ignore the relationship between Hemingway the employees of Charles Scribner’s Sons is to ignore an important force in his development as an artist and as a professional writer and to ignore how our perception of the writer and his work was shaped.” Through skillful organization of his material, built upon solid research, the author has provided a fascinating study of one of the most fruitful author-editor relationships in American literature.
James E. Person Jr. is the author of the biography “Earl Hamner: From Walton’s Mountain to Tomorrow” (Cumberland House).
