“Publishing is not, of course, dependent on the individual taste of the publisher,” Perkins replied to one reader of Hemingway’s novel. “He is under an obligation to his profession which binds him to bring out a work which in the judgment of the literary world is significant in its literary qualities and is a pertinent criticism of the civilization of the time.”
A. Scott Berg, Max Perkins: Editor of Genius: Editor of Genius

“Max said little. His essential quality was always to say little, but by powerful empathy for writers and for books to draw out of them what they had it in them to say and to write.”
A. Scott Berg, Max Perkins: Editor of Genius: Editor of Genius

“There’s a good feeling about them. It’s something I like to find in fiction. So many writers master form and technique, but get so little feeling into their work. I think that’s important.”
A. Scott Berg, Max Perkins: Editor of Genius: Editor of Genius
