Thomas Wolfe was a writer who was used to rejection. His constantly lengthy novels didn't seem to appeal to the vast majority of publishers out there and most editors were fazed by his compulsion to write hundreds of pages.
Not willing to give up on his talent, Wolfe send his pages to Maxwell Perkins, the man who originally published Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. When Thomas is summoned to Maxwell's office, he presumes he's once again about to be told that he's been unsuccessful but the chance to meet a man who's had so much literary influence is too much to pass up. The meeting begins as Wolfe thinks it would but he's soon informed by Perkins that the company will take on Wolfe's latest book.
Wolfe and Perkins form a close relationship, Wolfe still delivering copious amounts of words and Perkins seemingly the only man capable of editing them. As their personal and professional relationship deepens, Perkins is taken in more and more by the acclaimed genius.
