Read full description of the books:
I have long loved F. Scott Fitzgerald. In my opinion, he may have been the greatest American author of the 20th century, as far as his prose is concerned. I never really admired his subject matter, however. It seemed self absorbed, and rather menial to me. I became fascinated with Fitzgerald, the person, when I was in college, when I read his letters, full of that same self absorption but infused with passion. Reading this rather new collection of letters, for me, was just a continuation of my study, not quite an obsession, but not casual reading, either.
The letters catalogue the train wreck of his adult life. He writes to Zelda from the time he's trying to win her (she was 18 or 19, he was about 21, freshly out of college) through their marriage, their breakdowns, their illnesses and her hospitalizations. How much of his burden was self inflicted? How much was it the fault of Zelda, equally or perhaps even more self-absorbed, but angry and fragile? Reading the letters was at times edifying, painful, heart rending, and perplexing .
I highly recommend this collection to those who are intensely interested in the subject. I'm glad I read it.

Read information about the authorFrancis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American writer of novels and short stories, whose works have been seen as evocative of the Jazz Age, a term he himself allegedly coined. He is regarded as one of the greatest twentieth century writers. Fitzgerald was of the self-styled "Lost Generation," Americans born in the 1890s who came of age during World War I. He finished four novels, left a fifth unfinished, and wrote dozens of short stories that treat themes of youth, despair, and age. He was married to Zelda Fitzgerald.
