This Side of Paradise and Other Classic Works (Barnes & Noble Single Volume Leatherbound Classics) Summary

This Side of Paradise and Other Classic Works (Barnes & Noble Single Volume Leatherbound Classics) by F. Scott Fitzgerald

If the 'Roaring Twenties' are remembered as the era of 'flaming youth', it was F. Scott Fitzgerald who lit the fire. This book traces the early life of Amory Blaine from the end of prep school through Princeton to the start of an uncertain career in New York City, and captures the spirit of the roaring twenties.

No writer portrayed America's Roaring Twenties as vividly as F. Scott Fitzgerald. In his effervescent tales of elegant ingenues on the prowl for husbands, Ivy League heirs en route to futures of idle entitlement, and endless alcohol-fuelled dance parties at ritzy country clubs, he limned a culture giddy with excess and as reckless as it was refined. Gifted with remarkable powers of observation and a witty way with words, Fitzgerald wrote stories that seem as fresh and modern today as they did when published nearly a century ago. This Side of Paradise and Other Classic Works features two full-length novels-This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned-and 19 short stories, including the classics 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair', 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz', and 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'.

Written as only they could be by an insider to the society that they portray, the 21 works collected in this volume capture the precarious splendor and doomed glory of that opulent era that their author called the Jazz Age.

About F. Scott Fitzgerald

Inseparably associated with a point in history he claimed to despise, F. Scott Fitzgerald is both the quintessential Jazz-Age writer and perhaps the era's harshest critic. However, the complexity and sheer timelessness of classics such as The Great Gatsby has ensured that Fitzgerald's work will never be regarded as mere period pieces.
