Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Robert Caro (Power Broker, The Years of Lyndon Johnson) and legendary editor Robert Gottlieb, have worked and fought together for 50 years, forging one of publishing’s most iconic and productive partnerships. Caro’s The Power Broker, edited by Gottlieb continues to be a bestseller after 48 years. Now 87, Caro is working to complete the fifth and 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.

Directed by Gottlieb’s daughter, Lizzie Gottlieb, “Turn Every Page” explores their remarkable creative collaboration, including the behind-the-scenes drama of the making of Caro’s The Power Broker and the LBJ series. With humor and insight, this unique double portrait reveals the work habits, peculiarities and professional joys of these two ferocious intellects. It arrives at the culmination of a journey that has consumed both their lives and impacted generations of politicians, activists, writers and readers, and furthered our understanding of power and democracy.

The Power Broker and the first four volumes of The Years of Lyndon Johnson are the seminal biographies of our time. A large audience patiently awaits the fifth and final Lyndon Johnson book which Caro is furiously working to finish. For those that have read any of these books, “Turn Every Page” is a revelation of the writing process and the mysterious relationship between an author and his editor. Those that haven’t will discover surprising and shocking moments of history that are unveiled in the investigative nature with which Caro approached them.
