Robert Caro is America's 'Biographer-in-Chief': a legendary, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist whose epic portraits of the country's political leaders (The Power Broker, The Years of Lyndon Johnson) have changed how the world sees American power. Robert Gottlieb is the greatest book editor of our time, a giant figure in American arts-and-letters who has shepherded the work of writers like Toni Morrison, Joseph Heller, Salman Rushdie and Mordechai Richler into the literary canon.

Turn Every Page explores the remarkable 50-year relationship between these literary legends, as Caro, now 86, works to complete the final volume of his Johnson biography, and Gottlieb, 91, waits to edit it. With humour and insight, and star-studded interviews with the famous thinkers and artists who have worked with both men (Bill Clinton, Ethan Hawke, Conan O'Brien) this unique double portrait reveals the work habits, peculiarities and professional joys of these two ferocious intellects at the culmination of a journey that has consumed both their lives and impacted generations of politicians, activists, writers and readers. One of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, Turn Every Page is an "enthralling" (Entertainment Weekly) story about finishing your life's work.
