Tender is the Night Summary

Tender is the Night (Collins Classics) by F. Scott Fitzgerald

From Collins Classics and the author of 'The Great Gatsby' a marriage unravels in this autobiographical tale.

'Sometimes it is harder to deprive oneself of a pain than of a pleasure.'

Set on the French Riviera in the 1920s, American Dick Diver and his wife Nicole are the epitome of chic, living a glamorous lifestyle and entertaining friends at their villa. Young film star Rosemary Hoyt arrives in France and becomes entranced by the couple. It is not long before she is attracted to the enigmatic Dick, but he and his wife hold dark secrets and as their marriage becomes more fractured, Fitzgerald laments the failure of idealism and the carefully constructed trappings of high society in the Roaring Twenties.

Tender is the Night Reviews

"A tragedy backlist by beauty."
"-- Daily Express

""For Fitzgerald desolation is a precondition of the lyrical. Hence the most distinctive impression of Tender: A beautiful novel about failure."
"-- Independent

""It is one of those books that you read and feel a shift... the story is told so poetically and eloquently. It is one of those books that you read and think: if I could only remember that sentence -- it is so beautiful."
"--" Sam Taylor-Wood
