Synopsis

A chronicle of Max Perkins' time as book editor at Scribner. A renowned and highly respected literary editor, Perkins oversaw seminal works by Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. 'Genius' centres on Perkins' relationship with literary giant Thomas Wolfe, a blazing talent with a larger-than-life personality. They formed a complex, transformative and irrepressible friendship that changed the lives of these brilliant but very different men forever.
