Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896–1940), an American novelist, short-story writer, and screenwriter, was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota; was educated at preparatory school in New Jersey; and briefly attended Princeton University, where he nurtured his love of writing. Fitzgerald launched an advertising career in New York City and began selling short stories, but it was his excursions to Europe, notably Paris, that fueled his literary ambitions.

Fitzgerald’s successful debut novel, This Side of Paradise, was followed by The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. Lured to Hollywood with the promise of a more lucrative career as a Hollywood screenwriter, Fitzgerald was inspired to write The Last Tycoon, which was unfinished at the time of his death and published posthumously.

Amazon.com Review

Fitzgerald's first novel, reprinted in the handsome Everyman's Library series of literary classic, uses numerous formal experiments to tell the story of Amory Blaine, as he grows up during the crazy years following the First World War. It also contains a new introduction by Craig Raine that describes critical and popular reception of the book when it came out in 1920. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
