Watermark's Book of the Week is The Editor by Steven Rowley.
From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a funny, poignant and wholly original novel about an author whose relationship with his very famous book editor will change him forever--both as a writer and a son. Rowley serves up an immersive plot, consisting of sublime wit and lots of tasty nuggets from the world of publishing. But, then, as the secrets, family dynamics, and James Smales' relationship with his famous editor unfold, The Editor becomes so much more. Humor, heart, and history combine to make The Editor a top-class novel; one that elicits plenty of laughs, plus a few tears.
