Author Robert Caro and His Editor, Robert Gottlieb, Know Each Other So Well

From an AP story by Hillel Italie headlined “Robert Caro, Gottlieb and the mystic chords of memory”:

Robert A. Caro and his editor, Robert Gottlieb, know each other so well.

After a half-century together, the pair have lived in each other’s minds for so long that they can anticipate what the other will say. Their collaborations on such epics as “The Power Broker” and the yet unfinished “The Years of Lyndon Johnson” series have established Caro as a leading historian and helped confirm Gottlieb — whose roster has included Toni Morrison, Doris Lessing and Joseph Heller — as one of publishing’s most accomplished editors.
