About the Author
F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1941) was one of the literary titans of the 20th century. A member of the “Lost Generation” of the 1920s, Fitzgerald’s writings best captured what he termed “The Jazz Age,” a period of declining traditional American values, prohibition and speakeasies, and great leaps in modernist trends.

The Crack Up is "telling it like it is" Scott on Scott and all his famous literary friends.
The Twenties roared, some were destroyed, some made it through to the other side. Scott made it through but died in his forties. His buddy Hemingway lasted until his sixties when a shotgun reunited him with Scott.
I wrote by first novel at 23 and moved to Paris, emulating Hem and FItz.
The Crack Up is terrific and takes me back.
