About this Item: Frankfurt am Main : Rogner & Bernhard bei Zweitausendeins 2001, 1984. Condition: Sehr gut. Deutsche Erstausgabe. 287 (1) Seiten und 4 Blatt mit Abbildungen. 19 cm. Sehr guter Zustand. - Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald (* 24. Juli 1900 in Montgomery, Alabama, als Zelda Sayre; † 10. März 1948 in Asheville) war eine US-amerikanische Autorin und die Ehefrau des Schriftstellers F. Scott Fitzgerald. Zelda Fitzgerald galt vielen Zeitgenossen als Verkörperung des typischen „flapper girls". Nach einem ausschweifenden Leben an der Seite ihres Mannes, das sich zunehmend schwieriger gestaltete, erlitt sie 1930 einen ersten Nervenzusammenbruch. Sie verbrachte die letzten Jahre bis zu ihrem Tod überwiegend in psychiatrischen Kliniken. 1932 veröffentlichte sie den autobiographischen Roman Save Me the Waltz. . Gemeinsames Leben in der literarischen Boheme: Das Paar ließ sich zunächst in New York nieder, wo sie die Größen der amerikanischen Literatur kennenlernten. Aufgrund der Prohibition und da die Lebenshaltungskosten in Frankreich durch den günstigen Franc geringer waren, lebte das Paar in den Zwanzigern häufig für längere Zeit in Frankreich. In dieser Zeit wurden Zelda und Scott von der Presse als Ebenbild des jugendlichen Zeitgeistes der Roaring Twenties gefeiert und erreichten einen Status ähnlich dem großer Filmstars ihrer Zeit. Nicht enden wollende Partys und große Mengen des von Scott konsumierten Alkohols führten zu einem kraftraubenden Leben. Das Paar verausgabte nahezu die gesamten Einnahmen, die Scott aus seiner Schriftstellerei bezog, etwa 30.000 US$ im Jahr – zu jener Zeit eine stolze Summe. Die ab Frühjahr 1925 bestehende enge Freundschaft ihres Mannes mit Ernest Hemingway betrachtete Zelda mit Argwohn, vor allem wegen ihres Abscheus vor den gemeinsamen Trinkereien.[4] Die Geburt ihres einzigen Kindes Frances Scottie Fitzgerald im Jahr 1921 trug wenig dazu bei, den Lebensrhythmus der beiden zu verlangsamen. Das Mädchen wurde hauptsächlich von Kindermädchen erzogen. Zunehmende Eigenständigkeit und eheliche Misere, Arbeit als Schriftstellerin: Im Jahr 1924 ließ Zelda sich auf eine kurze Bekanntschaft mit dem französischen Piloten Edouard Jozan ein, in den sie sich verliebte. Dies veranlasste ihren Ehemann, sie in ihrer gemieteten Ferienvilla an der Côte d'Azur einzusperren, um sie davon abzuhalten, Jozan zu treffen. Ab 1923 schrieb Zelda Erzählungen, die jedoch unter Scotts oder unter ihrer beider Namen veröffentlicht wurden, da es ein Mehrfaches an Honorar brachte. Eine erste Erzählung hatte sie bereits als Schülerin an der Highschool geschrieben. Während ihrer Pariser Zeit, im Alter von 26 Jahren, begeisterte Zelda sich erneut für das klassische Ballett, das sie von ihrem 9. bis zu ihrem 18. Lebensjahr ausgeübt hatte. Sie trainierte mit immensem Fleiß. Ihre Pariser Ballettlehrerin Ljubow Jegorowa verschaffte ihr an der Oper Neapel ein Engagement als Primaballerina, das Zelda jedoch aus Sorge um ihre Tochter, die in Paris hätte zurückbleiben müssen, nicht annahm. Scott stand dem Verlangen seiner Frau, Profitänzerin zu werden, ablehnend entgegen. Die Konflikte zwischen Zelda und Scott wurden noch stärker, als Zelda eine eigenständige Karriere als Balletttänzerin, Schriftstellerin und Malerin anstrebte, was Scott zu unterdrücken suchte, da er fürchtete, seine Frau könne ihn bei finanzieller Unabhängigkeit verlassen. Zelda äußerte im Februar 1930 die Absicht, sich scheiden zu lassen, wobei Fitzgerald mit einer Vase nach ihr warf.[7] Wenig später brach sie erstmals mit einem Burnout zusammen. In der Nervenklinik Les Rives de Prangins am Genfersee schrieb sie ein Ballettlibretto sowie drei Erzählungen, die verloren gingen, später ebenso weitere fünf. Im Oktober 1931, nach der Rückkehr des Paares aus Europa nach Montgomery, begann Zelda ihren ersten Roman, den sie Ende März 1932 in der psychiatrischen Phipps-Klinik Baltimore beendete, wo sie mit Erlaubnis ihrer Ärztin Mildred Squires täglich zwei Stunden schreiben durfte.[8] Der Roman erschien im Oktober 1932 unter dem Titel "Save Me The Waltz" und war von Zelda als Enthüllungsroman angelegt, der jedoch.

About this Item: Jonathan Cape, London, 1968. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very good. Third edition, first printing thus, with a preface by Harry T. Moore and a note on the text by Matthew J. Bruccoli. Save Me the Waltz was written by Zelda Fitzgerald (1900-48) in six hectic weeks while recovering from a breakdown. The novel is intensely autobiographical, portraying a Southern belle's struggle to rise above being "a back-seat driver about life" and to earn respect for her own accomplishments - to establish herself independently of her husband. It is a forceful, truthful picture of a legendary marriage in a fabulous age, and one of the most shattering self-portraits of a woman ever committed to paper. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. Period bookseller's label to the front pastedown. Light bumping to the corners and tips. Some general browning and minor soiling to the dust jacket; else very good. Bruccoli ZF-A1.3.b. Seller Inventory # 66136

About this Item: London: Grey Walls Press, 1953. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. First English Edition. First English edition. Publisher's light blue cloth, lettered in gilt to spine, in original pink pictorial dust jacket. Near fine with a slight lean to spine and a touch of wear to spine ends, light offsetting to endpapers, a few tiny spots to top edge; dust jacket with a few tiny nicks to spine ends and corners, spine faded but front panel extremely bright. Overall, a tight and attractive copy. Originally published by Scribner's in the US in 1932, Save Me the Waltz is the first and only novel by Zelda Fitzgerald, better known as an artist and wife of the renowned author F. Scott Fitzgerald. An extremely autobiographical text, it tells the story of "a young artist to whom success comes very early," and "a Southern girl" who would travel the world, live as an expatriate in Paris, and ultimately "return to the Southern town in which she was born." Similarly, Zelda and F. Scott were married young, lived abroad for several years, and then returned to the American Southeast for health reasons. Increasingly afflicted with mental illness in her adult years, Zelda was admitted to the Sheppard Pratt sanatorium in Towson, Maryland in 1930, and began writing Save Me the Waltz as part of her ongoing therapy.
