Together the two men set out to work on a version for publication and a seemingly endless struggle over every single phrase ensues.

Tom Tall:
Read the book. Max disliked women. He disliked his own daughters. It seems that he may have had a crush on Thomas Wolfe. He certainly pursued him with constant letters and allowing Wolfe to take over his private life; to the point where Wolfe would show up at Max's house at any time and curse, get drunk and not have any consequences. It was only when other people in the literary world became aware that Max had basically taken over Wolfe's books, re-written them and even told Wolfe when his book was done and would be published as Max wanted it that Wolfe was embarrassed enough to leave Max's influence and seek another publisher.
Alex Moya:
Thomas Wolfe was a big guy. Some 250 lbs and tall too, in stark contrast to the malnourished Jude Law. Also, why would the movie only focus on his relationship with his editor? There's tons of more interesting events captured in his book Look Homeward Angel, like the time he witnessed his native Ashevilleans see their savings evaporate during the great depression.
