About This Book

`Ideal for students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the literary works of an iconic American author. Very highly recommended.` ― The Midwest Book Review
Although better known today for his novels, in the 1920s F. Scott Fitzgerald ranked among the top writers of magazine fiction. Fitzgerald represented the dreams and aspirations of the post-World War I generation in his life as well as his works. With his glamorous wife, Zelda, and cosmopolitan social circle, the gifted young wordsmith projected the perfect image for narrating tales of restless youth in a hectic world.
These short stories offer insights into many themes, characters, and techniques that emerged in Fitzgerald's later works. `Winter Dreams,` written three years before The Great Gatsby, shares the concept of commitment to an idealized dream. `Babes in the Woods,` developed while the author was still a student at Princeton, evidences the roots of This Side of Paradise. A dozen other selections ― including `The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,` `The Camel's Back,` `The Four Fists,` and `The Cut-Glass Bowl` ― offer further insights into the author's growing skills as well as individual examples of his sparkling prose, understated wit, and deft characterizations.
