Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This slender volume consists of Fitzgerald's pronouncements on writing and writers. Excerpts are drawn from the author's letters and novels as well as from previously published collections such as The Crack-up (1945) and In His Own Time (1971). They are arranged under ten arbitrary headings including "What Writing Is and Does," "What a Writer Is," "Characters," and "Publishing." No attempt has been made to separate the significant from the banal, nor is biographical or critical background provided. Furthermore, the editor makes no distinctions between Fitzgerald's own comments on writing and those expressed by his fictional characters. This book adds nothing new to Fitzgerald scholarship and will be of little use to beginning students or specialists. William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
