Scott Fitzgerald's life reads like one of his own stories: a young man of great promise marries into wealth, but beneath the golden surface lie alcoholism, debt, insecurity, and in Fitzgerald's particular case, the mental instability of his beautiful, unconventional wife, Zelda. Many of the photos in this volume have never before been published, including a photo of the location where Fitzgerald and Zelda became engaged, along with rare first edition book jackets, paintings by Zelda, and photos of friends and colleagues. Fitzgerald scholar Ruth Prigozy provides fresh insight into the life of the novelist who, in both his work and life, captured the rise and fall of the Jazz Age.
