Every author needs a great editor standing behind him or her.
This week, we were totally psyched to hear that Colin Firth and Michael Fassbender will be playing Thomas Wolfe and his legendary editor Max Perkins in a film adaption of A. Scott Berg’s National Book Award–winning account of their relationship, Max Perkins: Editor of Genius. And not just for all the Firth/Fassbender it means we’ll be getting.

Read about them after the jump, and if we’ve missed your favorite, tell us the story in the comments.
