Although reluctant to see his poetic prose trimmed, Wolfe agreed and helped by Perkins, who had become a true friend, with the result that it instantly became a favorite with the critics and best seller. Success was even greater in 1935 when Of Time end the River appeared, but the fight for reducing Wolfe’s logorrheic written expression had been even longer, with five thousand pages, Perkins managed to cut ninty thousand words from the book, and bitter ultimately taking its toll, the relationships between the two men gradually deteriorating.
