This evocative collection of love letters chronicles one of the most legendary romances of all time. Much has been written about the fascinating marriage between Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. Through his alcoholism and her mental illness, his career highs (and lows) and her institutional confinement, their devotion to each other lasted for more than twenty-two years. Their myth conjures up images of gleaming hotel lobbies, white suits, flappers, lavish parties and smoky speakeasies - a whole world of nostalgia for the Jazz age and the expatriate life in Europe. The Fitzgeralds' courtship and marriage was so tightly linked to their books that it has often been hard to distinguish between life and literature. Now, as a result of the meticulous work of Fitzgerald scholars Jackson R. Bryer and Cathy W. Barks, who have brought many previously unpublished letters together with those published separately in Scott and Zelda's collected writings, the story of their love can be given in their own letters. Introduced by an extensive narrative of the Fitzgeralds, they are illustrated throughout with a selection of both familiar and unpublished photographs.

A vibrant self-portrait of an artist whose work was his life. In this new collection of F. Scott Fitzgerald's letters, edited by leading Fitzgerald scholar and biographer Matthew J. Bruccoli, we see through his own words the artistic and emotional maturation of one of America's most enduring and elegant authors. A Life in Letters is the most comprehensive volume of Fitzgerald's letters -- many of them appearing in print for the first time. The fullness of the selection and the chronological arrangement make this collection the closest thing to an autobiography that Fitzgerald ever wrote. While many readers are familiar with Fitzgerald's legendary "jazz age" social life and his friendships with Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Edmund Wilson, and other famous authors, few are aware of his writings about his life and his views on writing. Letters to his editor Maxwell Perkins illustrate the development of Fitzgerald's literary sensibility; those to his friend and competitor Ernest Hemingway reveal their difficult relationship. The most poignant letters here were written to his wife, Zelda, from the time of their courtship in Montgomery, Alabama, during World War I to her extended convalescence in a sanatorium near Asheville, North Carolina. Fitzgerald is by turns affectionate and proud in his letters to his daughter, Scottie, at college in the East while he was struggling in Hollywood. For readers who think primarily of Fitzgerald as a hard-drinking playboy for whom writing was effortless, these letters show his serious, painstaking concerns with creating realistic, durable art.

The fiction of F. Scott Fitzgerald serves as a compelling and incisive chronicle of the Jazz Age and Depression Era. This collection explores the degree to which Fitzgerald was in tune with, and keenly observant of, the social, historical and cultural contexts of the 1920s and 1930s. Original essays from forty international scholars survey a wide range of critical and biographical scholarship published on Fitzgerald, examining how it has evolved in relation to critical and cultural trends. The essays also reveal the micro-contexts that have particular relevance for Fitzgerald's work - from the literary traditions of naturalism, realism and high modernism to the emergence of youth culture and prohibition, early twentieth-century fashion, architecture and design, and Hollywood - underscoring the full extent to which Fitzgerald internalized the world around him.
