schema:reviewBody""The Lousy Racket is a thorough examination of Ernest Hemingway's working relationship with his American publisher, Charles Scribner's Sons, and with his editors there: Maxwell Perkins, Wallace Meyer, and Charles Scribner III. This first critical study of Herningway's professional collaboration with Scribners also details the editing, promotion, and sales of the books he published with the firm from 1926 to 1952 and provides a fascinating look into the American publishing industry in the early twentieth century." "This study reveals the working relationship between Hemingway and his editors, with special emphasis on the friendship that developed between Hemingway and the dean of American book editors, Maxwell Perkins. Drawing on many unpublished resources, including correspondence between Hemingway and his editors and others in the firm, as well as printing, advertising records, and sales dummies, Robert W. Trogdon shows how Hemingway's public reputation was shaped in large part by Scribners." "Hemingway scholars will value this contribution to the field, and The Lousy Racket is an important addition to studies in the modernist era in Arnerican literature and to publishing history."--BOOK JACKET."
