About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Save Me the Waltz by Fitzgerald, Zelda.

Description:

The fitzgerald mystique continues well into the 21st century, with two important biographies/retrospectives published in 2015 and many articles. First editions of "Gatsby" with all points and DJ now go for upwards of $400,000, and his other books are doing well too. That golden light, absent in his later years when he was considered a failure and a drunkard by Hemingway and others, sometimes shone on his glamorous schizophrenic wife Zelda, whose only novel reflected their lives and tumults together. Modern commentary on "Save Me the Waltz," seems to grant Zelda her own small piece of immortality, making this a rare and unusual copy of the first edition with both strong appeal and frustrating defects. Only 3,010 copies were printed and only 1,392 were sold. The binding is tight, text block firm, interior pages unmarked. Ex Lib, but most of the usual Ex Lib defects are missing -- the ffep bears only a stamp stating "Property of South Texas RENTAL LIBRARY, South Texas, Inc," and the stamped number 22331, a small illegible pencil number and slight fading. The flyleaf from the original DJ is pasted onto the verso of the front cover, (with price of $2.00) and the inside rear cover has some browning but the usual Exib lending slip has been removed, leaving only a narrow stripe. Blue title and author lettering clear and unobstructed on the light green cloth front board, spine sunfaded but lettering (Title and author at top, Scribners at bottom) unsullied. Copyright page states "Copyright 1932 by Charles Scribner's Sons, with first edition "A" and Scribner's icon present. The following is from a Wikipedia entry: "Save Me the Waltz" is Zelda Fitzgerald's only novel. Published in 1932, it is a semi-autobiographical account of her life and marriage.By the 1930s, Zelda had already been in and out of psychiatric facilities, and her husband was stalled writing his next work; he had not produced a novel since 1925's, ("The Great Gatsby). Zelda described her writing to Scott, "You will like my novel -- it is distinctly École Fitzgerald, though more ecstatic than yours¿perhaps too much so." Zelda sent the manuscript to Scott's friend and publisher, Maxwell Perkins at Scribner's. When Scott saw it, he was outraged -- it had drawn heavily on her own life, as had Scott's previous writings, but the novel he had been working on for four years ("Tender is the Night," published in 1934) ) drew on many of the same events. Scott forced her to revise extensively, and later used much of the same autobiographical material in "Tender." "Waltz" was published in 1932 -- the low printing was not unusual for a first novel in the middle of the Depression, on cheap paper, with a cover of green linen. No reprints were issued until after Scott and Zelda's deaths, and the reprint was a UK published, Gray Walls Press. Recent evaluations cite Zelda's "florid" writing style, but also credit her with bringing the gilded era and its attendant excesses and crash landings to life. This is a near unique copy of a novel that is well-known, but few have read it. Even in this condition it is exceedingly rare. Photos available for serious inquiries. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 'Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.'One of the great literary curios of the twentieth century Save Me the Waltz is the first and only novel by the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. During the years when Fitzgerald was working on Tender is the Night, Zelda Fitzgerald was preparing her own story, which strangely parallels the narrative of her husband, throwing a fascinating light on Scott Fitzgerald's life and work. In its own right, it is a vivid and moving story: the confessional of a famous glamour girl of the affluent 1920s and an aspiring ballerina which captures the spirit of an era.
