Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: F. Scott Fitzgerald is regarded as one of the greatest writers in American literary history. His personal search for greatness within himself inspired fiction that redefined the American character, including novels such as The Beautiful and the Damned, Tender Is the Night, The Last Tycoon, and--the ultimate meditation on the American dream--The Great Gatsby. This book describes Fitzgerald's days as a mediocre student at Princeton, his alcoholism, his troubled marriage to Zelda, and his bouts of depression. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: Book by Tessitore, John
From School Library Journal: Gr 8 Up-A slim, highly readable biography about one of America's most studied authors. Beginning with Fitzgerald's early childhood, Tessitore objectively discusses the writer's family life, education, military career, work, marriage, alcoholism, his wife's mental illness, his Hollywood experiences, and his eventual dissolution and death. Black-and-white photos of the subject throughout his life, his wife, daughter, and their contemporaries as well as some movie stills are included. Chapter notes, suggestions for further reading, and a list of film adaptations of the author's books conclude the volume. Since much of Fitzgerald's writing is autobiographical, this clear, concise volume will be a helpful resource for students studying his work.
