Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American Jazz Age author of novels and short stories. 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.Review:
"One of the greatest works of American literature...a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth."
"-- The Times
""It is a marvellously suggestive novel... a parable of modern America, and by extension of modern life."
--A. N. Wilson", Daily Telegraph
""The first and greatest modern novel, it has beautiful women, lavish parties, romance, betrayal and murder woven together in an intricately structured plot. A prescient comment on the dying days of a gilded age that is brilliant entertainment with a very eloquent insight"."
