Synopsis: Twenty-two years of correspondence between Ernest Hemingway and his editor, Maxwell Perkins, are covered in a volume that chronicles Hemingway's development from promising young writer to famous novelist and the steadfast loyalty of an expert editor.

Review: Was it his personal desire to be in print like the men whose books he edited that made Maxwell Perkins preserve his correspondence, or a clear appreciation that his pen pals were the century's greatest writers? First there was Dear Scott, Dear Max: The Fitzgerald-Perkins Correspondence, which captured the exchange between Perkins, an editor at Scribner's, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, who introduced Perkins to Papa. Now, with The Only Thing That Counts we have a collection of Perkins's letters to Ernest Hemingway and Hemingway's often poignant replies. The letters offer a fuller view into the relationship between a writer and editor and capture the two men in a way nothing else could.

Will today's great editors and authors care enough to back up their e-mail and thus preserve the next century's literary record?
