Save Me The Waltz Summary

Save Me The Waltz by Zelda Fitzgerald

'Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.'

One of the great literary curios of the twentieth century Save Me the Waltz is the first and only novel by the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. During the years when Fitzgerald was working on Tender is the Night, Zelda Fitzgerald was preparing her own story, which strangely parallels the narrative of her husband, throwing a fascinating light on Scott Fitzgerald's life and work. In its own right, it is a vivid and moving story: the confessional of a famous glamour girl of the affluent 1920s and an aspiring ballerina which captures the spirit of an era.

Save Me The Waltz Reviews

The only published novel of a brave and talented woman who is remembered for her defeats -- Matthew Bruccoli * Some Sort of Epic Grandeur: The Life of F. Scott Fitzgerald *
Some of her sentences are so bittersweetly delicious I could eat them -- Jessica Whiteley * Stylist *
A strangely evocative novel, episodic in structure, painterly in its description, almost hallucinatory in overall effect * New York Times *
