About the Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American writer of novels and short stories, whose works have been seen as evocative of the Jazz Age, a term he himself allegedly coined. He is regarded as one of the greatest twentieth century writers. Fitzgerald was of the self-styled "Lost Generation," Americans born in the 1890s who came of age during World War I. He finished four novels, left a fifth unfinished, and wrote dozens of short stories that treat themes of youth, despair, and age. He was married to Zelda Fitzgerald.

Set in an era of intoxicating excitement and ruinous excess, changing manners and challenged morals, F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel chronicles the lives of Harvard-educated Anthony Patch and his beautiful, willful wife, Gloria. This bitingly ironic story eerily foretells the fate of the author and his own wife, Zelda—from its giddy romantic beginnings to its alcohol-fueled end. A portrait of greed, ambition, and squandered talent, The Beautiful and Damned depicts American embarked on the greatest spree in its history, a world Fitzgerald saw, according to Tobias Wolff, "with clearer eyes than any of his contemporaries." By turns hilarious, heartbreaking, and chillingly prophetic, it remains one of Fitzgerald's most acclaimed works, which Gertrude Stein correctly predicted "will be read when many of his well-known contemporaries are forgotten."
