Partially autobiographical, This Side of Paradise, F. Scott Fitzgerald's first novel and written in 1920, was credited with having invented the American flapper. This dazzling chronicle of youth and the Jazz Age remains bitingly relevant decades later.

Amory Blaine, a handsome, wealthy, spoiled, and snobbish young man from the Midwest attends Princeton University to acquire a refined sense of the proper social values. Lacking all sense of purpose, he interests himself primarily in literary cults, vaguely liberal student activities, and a series of flirtations with some rather predatory young ladies. Amory states that ''It's essentially cleaner to be corrupt and rich than it is to be innocent and poor.''

About the Author:

F. SCOTT FITZGERALD (1896-1940) was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and educated at Princeton, where he was a leader in theatrical and literary activities. He began writing his first novel, This Side of Paradise, while serving in the army. Its publication in 1920 established him as the spokesman for the Jazz Age. His major novels include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night.

Review:

''A truly amazing first novel.'' --H. L. Mencken -- American journalist, essayist, magazine editor, satirist, acerbic critic of American life and culture, and a scholar of American English

''Bears the impress of genius . . . Splendid and fascinating.'' --Chicago Tribune

''The glorious spirit of abounding youth glows throughout this fascinating tale . . . As a picture of the daily existence of what we call loosely 'college men,' this book is as nearly perfect as such a work could be . . . It could have been written only by an artist who knows how to balance his values, plus a delightful literary style.'' --New York Times
