question He had an agent in New York, a tough red-headed woman named Phyllis Sandler who smoked Herbert Tareytons, drank Jim Beam from a paper cup, and thought the literary sun rose and set on Sean O'Casey. Question: What’s the meaning of ‘thought the literary sun rose and set on Sean O'Casey?’

This is just my interpretation: the sun rising and setting is something that happens on earth, earth is the most important and central thing to human existence. I think this sentence implies that the agent thinks Sean O'Casey is the most central, perhaps the most influential person in the world of literature.
