F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final completed novel, Tender is the Night, published in 1934 but written during the previous decade, is a quintessentially decadent story of Americans abroad in the Jazz Age. In this accessible collection of essays, an impressive congregation of North American and European scholars presents eleven new readings of this widely studied book. The list of noteworthy contributors, including the general editor of the Cambridge Edition of the Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald and the editors of the F. Scott Fitzgerald Review, makes this volume required reading for Fitzgerald scholars and fans.

... This collection is thoughtfully put together and rich in its archival, theoretical, and cultural explorations of Tender. It does a service for the Fitzgerald studies in that it manages will the difficult task of presenting a body of critical material that is both complex and accessible. It is essential reading for anyone seeking a sophisticated understanding of Tender and desiring to keep abreast of the ongoing critical reassessment of Fitzgerald's canon. * The F. Scott Fitzgerald Review, Vol. 6 *
