I went through a phase of reading everything about Sara and Gerald Murphy and am completely fascinated by their lives, the impact that their lives had on their friends and the frank look at the lives of their friends. These friends happened to include: Hemingway, Leger, Dorothy Parker, Fitzgerald and more. Letters from the Lost Generation is a sampling of actual correspondence between the friends. Through this you learn of the beginning and ends of lives, marriages, and friendships.

This is a remarkable, poignant account of an incredible generation. It provides a deep sense of the pluses and minuses of fame, money and privilege. The times really come alive in the collection of letters and the narrative. Better than any novel.
