Although this novella stands out from his body of work in that it's a playful yet sinister fairy tale, it brilliantly fuses F. Scott Fitzgerald's ongoing lush fantasies about the extremes of wealth with his much more somber understanding of what underpins it. Loosely inspired by a summer he spent as a teenager working on a ranch in Montana, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz is Fitzgerald's hallucinatory paean to the American West and all its promises.It's the story of John T. Unger, a young Southerner who goes to Montana for summer vacation with a wealthy college classmate. But the classmate's family proves to be much more than simply wealthy: They own a mountain made entirely of one solid diamond. And they've gone to dreadful lengths to conceal their secret ... meaning John could be in danger.But the family also has a daughter, lovely Kismine, and with her help, John may yet escape the fate her family has meted out to all their other guests so far

The Great Gatsby has long been celebrated as the archetypal American novel, and its influence on later writers from J.D. Salinger to John OHara cannot be overestimated. Fitzgerald looks deeply into himself and his milieu to create the story of James Gatz, a self-educated nobody from Kentucky who has amassed a fortune and adopted the persona of Jay Gatsby, an Oxford-educated man about town, for the sole purpose of winning back the heart of Daisy, the woman he loved in his youth. Daisy is now married to Tom Buchanan a brutal, ignorant racist who embodies the corruption that can come with unlimited wealth. As Gatsby, Daisy and Tom play out the drama in a small Long Island town, Fitzgerald makes it clear that life is meaningless when it is based on money and glamour at the expense of the solid American values of self-reliance and hard work.

Творчество Фрэнсиса Скотта Фицджеральда, одного из самых известных и блистательных авторов “эпохи джаза”, остаётся актуальным и интересным и по сей день.

Он рисует читателю правдивую картину "золотого века" Голливуда: фейерверки событий из красивой жизни звёзд, километры отснятой киноплёнки и зловещая пустота, которую обязательно придётся чем-то заполнить. Впрочем, все сильные люди имеют свои слабости, и главный герой романа – не исключение... Читайте зарубежную литературу в оригинале!
