Re(1): Film review: "Genius"

I haven’t seen the movie and I’ve never had a book editor, but that’s not going to stop me from commenting. I can see both sides of this issue. I can sympathize with Wolfe because every story I write is my “baby”. Someone might praise it but then point out a tiny flaw or suggest a minor change. “It’s a beautiful baby except for that tiny, little mole on his back and it would have been nice if he had five fingers instead of six.” On the other hand (snicker), an editor is like a record producer. So Perkins “arranged” Wolfe’s work in the same way that George Martin “arranged” the Beatles’ songs. It seems to me that both editor and writer are necessary to a successful book and when you pair a great writer with a great editor you get a great book.
