Scott Fitzgerald&&L/B&&R was twenty-five and heralded as the most promising writer of his generation, owing to the success of his first novel &&LI&&RThis Side of Paradise&&L/I&&R. Recently married to the girl of his dreams, the former Zelda Sayre, Fitzgerald built upon his sudden prosperity with &&LI&&RThe Beautiful and the Damned&&L/I&&R, a cautionary tale of reckless ambition and squandered talent set amid the glitter of Jazz Age New York.  &&L/P&&R&&LP&&RThe novel chronicles the relationship of Anthony Patch, a Harvard-educated, aspiring writer, and his beautiful young wife, Gloria. While they wait for Anthony’s grandfather to die and pass his millions on to them, the young couple enjoys an endless string of parties, traveling, and extravagance. Beginning with the pop and fizz of life itself, &&LI&&RThe Beautiful and the Damned&&L/I&&R quickly evolves into a scathing chronicle of a dying marriage and a hedonistic society in which beauty is all too fleeting.&&L/P&&R&&LP&&RA fierce parable about the illusory quality of dreams, the intractable nature of reality, and the ruin wrought by time, &&LI&&RThe Beautiful and the Damned&&L/I&&R eerily anticipates the dissipation and decline that would come to the Fitzgeralds themselves before the decade had run its course.&&L/P&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LSTRONG&&RPagan Harleman&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R studied literature at Columbia College, then traveled extensively in the Middle East and West Africa before receiving an MFA from New York University’s graduate film program. While at NYU she made several award-winning shorts and received the Dean’s Fellowship, the Steven Tisch Fellowship, and a Director’s Craft Award.&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R

Book Description:

This edition includes a detailed account of the composition of the novel, a textual apparatus, a chronology of composition, and, uniquely, three versions of the ending. Explanatory notes situate The Beautiful and Damned in its times and deepen the reader's understanding of Fitzgerald's sources for the novel.

From the Inside Flap:

Fitzgerald's second novel, a devastating portrait of the excesses of the Jazz Age, is a largely autobiographical depiction of a glamorous, reckless Manhattan couple and their spectacular spiral into tragedy. Published on the heels of "This Side of Paradise, the story of the Harvard-educated aesthete Anthony Patch and his willful wife, Gloria, is propelled by Fitzgerald's intense romantic imagination and demonstrates an increased technical and emotional maturity. "The Beautiful and Damned is at once a gripping morality tale, a rueful meditation on love, marriage, and money, and an acute social document. As Hortense Calisher observes in her Introduction, "Though Fitzgerald can entrance with stories so joyfully youthful they appear to be safe--when he cuts himself, you will bleed."
