TURN EVERY PAGE explores the remarkable fifty-year relationship between two literary legends: writer Robert Caro and his longtime editor Robert Gottlieb. Now 86, Caro is working to complete the final volume of his masterwork, The Years of Lyndon Johnson; Gottlieb, 91, waits to edit it. The task of finishing their life’s work looms before them. With humor and insight, 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.
“A love letter to many aspects of the publishing world that have more or less fallen by the wayside.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety
“What a pleasure it is to witness these two gentlemen at work, doing something they love. This documentary is as exhilarating to me as any Hollywood action-adventure yarn. I loved every minute.” Leonard Maltin
CRITIC’S PICK! “A great profile, filled with wit, affection and detailed stories of how the books came to be.” Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times
