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.

The latest stage version of William Shakespeare's historic epic Henry V is currently playing to packed-out audiences at the Noel Coward Theatre on London's West End, with critics being particularly taken by lead man Jude Law, who portrays the embattled monarch in Michael Grandage's take on the show.

Jude Law is being roundly praised for his depiction of Henry V

The last instalment of the Michael Grandage Company’s season on the West End, it may also be the best too, thanks largely to the star performance from its lead performer. After a successful 15-month season, consisting of five plays each performed at the Noel Coward Theatre, Henry V marks the end of Grandage's triumphant run, but he couldn't have ended things on higher note. Whilst praise has been distributed to the direction and stage design for the show, it is Law's lead performance that has captured critics and audiences alike, as the Dom Hemingway actor continues his good run of form as a critically acclaimed acting talent.
