My bedside reading right now happens to be Max Perkins: Editor of Genius.
The book fell open at the page where Hemingway takes off for the Ambos Mundos Hotel in Havana to read proofs at his leisure. I made it to Fire Island for four days but without the mss, so I'm back at the local café with the red pen to meet my deadline.
