More About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald was one of the major American writers of the twentieth century -- a figure whose life and works embodied powerful myths about our national dreams and aspirations. Fitzgerald was talented and perceptive, gifted with a lyrical style and a pitch-perfect ear for language. He lived his life as a romantic, equally capable of great dedication to his craft and reckless squandering of his artistic capital. He left us one sure masterpiece, The Great Gatsby; a near-masterpiece, Tender Is the Night; and a gathering of stories and essays that together capture the essence of the American experience. His writings are insightful and stylistically brilliant; today he is admired both as a social chronicler and a remarkably gifted artist.

This is a nice little piece, something a writer does in between bigger things. It does have the natural storytelling and spot on prose which Fitzgerald's fans admire. It isn't much, but for fans of Fitzgerald, this is a wonderful find and worth picking up. However, product review note here: The Kindle copy I purchased had several typos in it: Multiple times the should obviously have been then. Very shoddy work from Scribner. Kinda shocking they'd let this thru on such a short piece, from one of their most important writers no less. Oh well. The readers won't mind, though, because no bad copy editing can destroy that beautiful sense of word timing and story drive that Fitzgerald possessed more than any English writer I've read, at least. The guy was darn good.

How satisfying, after so many years, to see this spare but great short story from Fitzgerald. Think of it as the literary equivalent of a shot of espresso--it certainly had me wanting to go back and re-read his other stories too.

It's a short one, to be sure, but so nice to read something 'new' from F. Scott. Despite its economy he creates a satisfying portrait of a woman and engages you with her story and conflict.

This is a stunning little story with a very good message. It is timeless--as a classic should be. Enjoy it.
