In the novel, Dick is eventually ruined--professionally, emotionally, and spiritually--by his union with Nicole. Fitzgerald's fate was not quite so novelistically neat: after Zelda was diagnosed as a schizophrenic and committed, Fitzgerald went to work as a Hollywood screenwriter in 1937 to pay her hospital bills. He died three years later--not melodramatically, like poor Jay Gatsby in his swimming pool, but prosaically, while eating a chocolate bar and reading a newspaper. Of all his novels, Tender Is the Night is arguably the one closest to his heart. As he himself wrote, "Gatsby was a tour de force, but this is a confession of faith." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Very well written and wonderfully descriptive. A bit confusing at some points due to the jump-around timeline, flashbacks etc. I can see why this is considered Fitzgerald's best. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Lenore Koehler

I enjoyed this read--the writing is great, much more lyrical than today's script. F. Scott was a beautiful writer, great gift with language. The story felt real. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Belle
