Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New ed. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. Unfinished at the time of his death, F. Scott Fitzgerald s The Last Tycoon is a story of doomed love set against the extravagance of America s booming film industry. This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited with an introduction by Edmund Wilson. The studio lot looks like thirty acres of fairyland the night that a mysterious woman stands and smiles at Monroe Stahr, the last of the great Hollywood princes. Enchanted by one another, they begin a passionate but hopeless love affair, starting with a fast-moving seduction as slick as a scene from one of Stahr s pictures. The romance unfolds, frame by frame, watched by Cecilia, a thoroughly modern girl who has taken her lessons in sentiment and cynicism from all the movies she has seen. Her buoyant humour and satirical eye perfectly complement Fitzgerald s panorama of Hollywood at its most lavish and bewitching. F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) has acquired a mythical status in American literary history, and his masterwork The Great Gatsby is considered by many to be the great American novel . In 1920 he married Zelda Sayre, dubbed the first American Flapper , and their traumatic marriage and Zelda s gradual descent into insanity became the leading influence on his writing. As well as many short stories, Fitzgerald wrote five novels This Side of Paradise , The Great Gatsby , The Beautiful and the Damned , Tender is the Night and, incomplete at the time of his death, The Last Tycoon . After his death The New York Times said of him that in fact and in the literary sense he created a generation . If you enjoyed The Last Tycoon , you might enjoy Fitzgerald s The Beautiful and the Damned , also available in Penguin Classics . Wonderful.a novel about Hollywood, written from the inside .
