About the Author
F Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was a novelist and short story writer, celebrated worldwide for his touching and tragic portrayals of the American Jazz Age, in all its tantalizing but hollow glamour. His fiction drew heavily on his own life, particularly on his passionate but turbulent marriage to beautiful Zelda Saure, dubbed 'the first American Flapper'. After receiving only moderate critical success in his lifetime, Fitzgerald is now heralded as one of the greatest writers in American history.
