Release Date :  2003-05-27
Description :  The exemplary novel of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgeralds' third book, <i>The Great Gatsby</i> (1925), stands as the supreme achievement of his career. T. S. Eliot read it three times and saw it as the "first step" American fiction had taken since Henry James; H. L. Mencken praised "the charm and beauty of the writing," as well as Fitzgerald's sharp social sense; and Thomas Wolfe hailed it as Fitzgerald's "best work" thus far. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when, <i>The New York Times</i> remarked, "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s that resonates with the power of myth. A novel of lyrical beauty yet brutal realism, of magic, romance, and mysticism, <i>The Great Gatsby</i> is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.

Description :  Yes, we know there’s been a rather recent movie by David Fincher starring Brad Pitt and the wonderful Cate Blanchett with this very title. But it is perhaps a good idea to plunge ourselves into the depths of the “written version”, actually the “written original”. Brad and Cate are great but, as with all movies, they are not just stories but also interpretations of stories. The original always helps us get in the shoes of a director ourselves and cast our own characters in our private movies inside our heads.<br /> The short story belongs to F. Scott Fitzgerald, otherwise known as the author of the Great Gatsby (movies seem to love Mr. Fitzgerald. This story, however, is part of <i>Tales of the Jazz Age</i>, a collection of short stories from the great ’20s. Benjamin Button is a strange case of backwards-aging person: he is born with the appearance of a 70-year old man and starts getting younger. You can imagine some of the complications of such a life, but can you measure with Fitzgerald when it comes to imagination? Put your imagination power to test and read his story.

Description :  'The Great Gatsby' written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald was first published in 1925. The story is of the year 1922 and characters of this story live in the town of West Egg of the prosperous Long Island. Jay Gatsby is a young millionaire (born in a poor family) with mysterious quixotic passion for the beautiful woman Daisy Buchanan. The story explores the social change with decadence, idealism, resistance to change and excesses. It creates a portrait of the Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties. The novel is a cautionary tale regarding the upheavals created by the disastrous cultural changes in the American society in that period. The Great Gatsby provides a critical social history of contemporary America, which was known for unprecedented economic prosperity, the evolution of jazz music, flapper culture, bootlegging and other criminal activities. These social disturbances are plausibly depicted by a simple beginning with use of automobiles to the discreet allusions to the organized crime. This novel provides the details of the garish society of the Roaring Twenties and serves well as an educative tool for the new generations.

5 The Diamond As Big As the Ritz

Price :  Free
Release Date :  2013-01-21
Description :  It is often said that great writers best reveal themselves in short fiction. Novels can better conceal lack of structure and style coherence but a short story forces you to fit in the life of an entire novel within the confines of just a few pages. Fitzgerald is, in this regard, a real master of short writing. The ebook we now give you is a great example of his mastery.<br /> It was first published in a volume of short stories called “Tales of the Jazz Age” (1922). “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz” is a “sinister fairy tale” that tells the story of a very rich family in possession of a great source of money: a mountain made entirely of diamond. It’s a low-hanging dream for most of us, eager to ignore the twists of fate associated with such a source of unlimited wealth. What happens when you add a love story on this background of wealth and danger?

8 Flappers and Philosophers

Author : F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre :  Classics  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  Free
Release Date :  2013-05-14
Description :  "What you doin'?"<br /> "Eatin' 'n apple."<br /><br /> Published in 1920, his first book after the very successful debut with "This Side of Paradise," ReadFwd’s reading suggestion of today is also Scott Fitzgerald’s first short story collection. Dedicated "To Zelda," it counts eight very different tales, covering a wide range of characters and themes, from the story of the young man who experiments with crime only to live through interesting repercussions to that of a young woman whose yacht is boarded by pirates. One of his recurring themes, very present in this early work that confirmed his talent, is the mismatching of love interests and of people not supposed to find love with each other, as in the novel "The Great Gatsby."<br /><br /> Another story, "The Ice Palace" is about a young southern girl who feels she needs something more in her life, to see "things happen on a big scale." This is a story in which the concept of a Flapper—whose embodiment was Fitzgerald’s own wife Zelda—re-emerges, concept he turned into one of his trademark motifs in his subsequent novels, especially with the character Daisy Buchanan, Gatsby’s doomed love.<br /><br /> "Flappers and Philosophers" is a book that will make you ponder on such a curious proximity of terms, but in the end, after being charmed by Fitzgerald’s unquestionable charisma, pulsing in every single story of this volume, you will realize that to portray women and life with such talent and vigour requires the deeper understanding of a philosopher.<br /><br /> And, because Fitzgerald’s books are all classical gems and this month a new film adaptation is coming out, promising to be spectacular, we suggest you read more of his books in the ReadFwd collection, especially "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (View on the iBookstore) and our latest special illustrated edition of "The Great Gatsby," with an interesting extra chapter on Flappers.

Description :  <b>About the Book</b><br /> <b>The Beautiful and Damned</b><br /><br /> Beautiful and Damned, first published by Scribner's in 1922, is F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel. It explores and portrays New York cafe society and the American Eastern elite during the Jazz Age before and after "the Great War" and in the early 1920s. The novel provides a portrait of the Eastern elite during the Jazz Age, exploring New York Cafe Society. As with his other novels, Fitzgerald's characters are complex, especially in their marriage and intimacy, much like how he treats intimacy in Tender Is the Night. The book is believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's relationship and marriage with Zelda Fitzgerald.<br /><br /> It tells the story of Anthony Patch (a 1920s socialite and presumptive heir to a tycoon's fortune), his relationship with his wife Gloria, his service in the army, and alcoholism. Toward the end of the novel, Fitzgerald references himself via a character who is a novelist by quoting this statement given after the novel:<br /><br /> "You know these new novels make me tired. My God! Everywhere I go some silly girl asks me if I've read 'This Side of Paradise.' Are our girls really like that? If it's true to life, which I don't believe, the next generation is going to the dogs. I'm sick of all this shoddy realism."<br /><br /> The novel concerns itself with the question of vocation—what does one do with oneself when one has nothing to do? writes Fitzgerald critic West. He says that Fitzgerald was concerned with the question of vocation for men as well as for women. In the novel, Fitzgerald presents Gloria as woman whose vocation is nothing more than to catch a husband. After her marriage to Anthony, Gloria's sole vocation is to slide into indolence and alcoholism; her husband's sole vocation is to wait for his inheritance.<br /><br /> <b>About the Author</b><br /> <b>F. Scott Fitzgerald</b><br /><br /> Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigm writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined himself. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. He finished four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, Tender Is the Night, and his most famous, The Great Gatsby. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published posthumously. Fitzgerald also wrote many short stories that treat themes of youth and promise along with despair and age.

10 Tender is the Night

Author : F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $13.99
Release Date :  2003-05-27
Description :  F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in a friend's copy of <i>Tender Is the Night,</i> "If you liked <i>The Great Gatsby,</i> for God's sake read this. <i>Gatsby</i> was a tour de force but this is a confession of faith." Set in the South of France in the decade after World War I, <i>Tender Is the Night</i> is the story of a brilliant and magnetic psychiatrist named Dick Diver; the bewitching, wealthy, and dangerously unstable mental patient, Nicole, who becomes his wife; and the beautiful, harrowing ten-year pas de deux they act out along the border between sanity and madness. <br /> In <i>Tender Is the Night,</i> Fitzgerald deliberately set out to write the most ambitious and far-reaching novel of his career, experimenting radically with narrative conventions of chronology and point of view and drawing on early breakthroughs in psychiatry to enrich his account of the makeup and breakdown of character and culture. <br /> <i>Tender Is the Night</i> is also the most intensely, even painfully, autobiographical of Fitzgerald's novels; it smolders with a dark, bitter vitality because it is so utterly true. This account of a caring man who disintegrates under the twin strains of his wife's derangement and a lifestyle that gnaws away at his sense of moral values offers an authorial cri de coeur, while Dick Diver's downward spiral into alcoholic dissolution is an eerie portent of Fitzgerald's own fate. <br /> F. Scott Fitzgerald literally put his soul into <i>Tender Is the Night,</i> and the novel's lack of commercial success upon its initial publication in 1934 shattered him. He would die six years later without having published another novel, and without knowing that <i>Tender Is the Night</i> would come to be seen as perhaps its author's most poignant masterpiece. In Mabel Dodge Luhan's words, it raised him to the heights of "a modern Orpheus."

Description :  <b>About the Book</b><br /> <b>Tender is the Night</b><br /><br /> Tender Is the Night is a novel by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. It was his fourth and final completed novel, and was first published in Scribner's Magazine between January-April, 1934 in four issues. The title is taken from the poem "Ode to a Nightingale" by John Keats.<br /><br /> Dick and Nicole Diver are a glamorous couple who take a villa in the South of France and surround themselves with a circle of friends, mainly Americans. Also staying at the resort are Rosemary Hoyt, a young actress, and her mother. Rosemary gets sucked into the circle of the Divers; she falls in love with Dick and is also adopted as a close friend by Nicole. Dick first toys with the idea of an affair with Rosemary at this point, which he finally acts upon years later.<br /><br /> However, Rosemary senses something is wrong with the couple, which is brought to light when one of the guests at a party reports having seen something strange in the bathroom. Tommy Barban, another guest, comes loyally to the defense of the Divers. The action involves various other friends, including the Norths, where a frequent occurrence is the drunken behavior of Abe North. The story becomes complicated when Jules Peterson, a black man, is murdered and ends up in Rosemary's bed, in a situation which could destroy Rosemary's career. Dick moves the blood-soaked body to cover up any implied relationship between Rosemary and Peterson.<br /><br /> Once into the book, the history of the Divers emerges. Dick Diver was a doctor and psychoanalyst and had taken on a complicated case of neuroses. This was Nicole, whose complicated, incestuous relationship with her father is suggested as the cause of breakdown. As she becomes infatuated with Dick, Dick is almost driven to marry her as part of the cure. Strong objections are raised: Nicole is an heiress and her sister thinks Dick is marrying her for her money. They do marry, and Nicole’s money pays for Dick's partnership in a Swiss clinic and for their extravagant lifestyle. However, Dick gradually develops a drinking problem. He gets into fights and trouble with the police in various incidents and is bought out of the clinic by his partner. The opening episode almost marks the crossover point whereby Dick becomes the weaker partner, progressively failing in what he attempts while Nicole becomes stronger. Dick's behaviour becomes embarrassing as he mishandles situations with the children and friends. Eventually Nicole has an affair with Tommy Barban, and divorces Dick to marry Barban. Nicole survives, while Dick drifts into ever diminishing circumstances. The underlying theme is then how one person has become strong by destroying another—a point emphasized cynically by Nicole's sister, who having seen Dick originally as the parasite, finally remarks that "That was what he was educated for."

Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books

Release Date :  2013-10-28
Description :  <i>Il grande Gatsby</i> (titolo originale: <i>The Great Gatsby</i>) è un romanzo dello scrittore statunitense Francis Scott Fitzgerald pubblicato per la prima volta a New York il 10 aprile 1925 e definito da T.S. Eliot “<i>il primo passo in avanti fatto dalla narrativa americana dopo Henry James</i>”.<br /> Ambientato a New York e a Long Island durante l'estate del 1922, <i>Il grande Gatsby</i> è il più acuto ritratto dell'anima dell'<i>età del jazz</i>, con le sue contraddizioni, il suo vittimismo e la sua tragicità.<br /> La storia, che seguendo la tecnica di Henry James viene raccontata da uno dei personaggi, narra la tragedia del mito americano che aveva retto il paese dai tempi dello sbarco a Plymouth Rock e può essere considerata l'autobiografia spirituale di Fitzgerald che, ad un certo punto della sua vita, chiuso con l'alcolismo e con la vita da playboy, voleva capire quali fossero stati gli ostacoli che avevano fatto inabissare la sua esistenza.<br /> In questo libro, come scrive il suo biografo Andrew Le Vot, Fitzgerald “<i>riflette, meglio che in tutti i suoi scritti autobiografici, il cuore dei problemi che lui e la sua generazione dovettero affrontare... In Gatsby, pervaso com'è da un senso del peccato e della caduta, Fitzgerald assume su di sé tutta la debolezza e la depravazione della natura umana</i>”.<br /><br /> A partire dagli anni ’30, <i>Il grande Gatsby</i> è stato tradotto svariate volte in italiano.<br /> Ciascuna di queste versioni era il frutto di una logica editoriale di tipo <i>classico</i> abbinata ad una altrettanto <i>classica</i> logica commerciale. L’editore affidava al traduttore l’elaborazione del testo e il risultato era un’opera chiusa alla data del "finito di stampare".<br /> Quello che proponiamo è un nuovo concetto di traduzione, un’opera nata <i>non</i> da un professionista, <i>non</i> messa in vendita e <i>non</i> chiusa. Con essa la ESA intende inaugurare una collana di grandi classici della letteratura mondiale offerti al pubblico in traduzioni da perfezionare nel tempo, col medesimo spirito che anima Wikipedia ovvero in maniera collaborativa, diretta e gratuita.<br /> L’opera, pertanto, non sarà mai <i>chiusa</i> ma <i>aperta</i> a critiche, suggerimenti e spunti riflessivi di ogni tipo e genere.&#xa0;<br /> Solo in questo modo riteniamo si possa dare avvio ad un concreto rilancio della cultura ed in particolare della lettura “critica”.

Description :  Taps at Reveille (1935) is a collection of 18 short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It was the fourth and final collection of short stories Fitzgerald published in his lifetime. All were timed to appear a few months to a year after each of his four completed novels were published.<br /><br /> The eighteen stories collected in Taps at Reveille are:<br /><br /> 1. "The Scandal Detectives" 2. "The Freshest Boy" 3. "He Thinks He's Wonderful" 4. "The Captured Shadow" 5. "The Perfect Life" 6. "First Blood" 7. "A Nice Quiet Place" 8. "A Woman with a Past" 9. "Crazy Sunday" 10. "Two Wrongs" 11. "The Night of Chancellorsville" 12. "The Last of the Belles" 13. "Majesty" 14. "Family in the Wind" 15. "A Short Trip Home" 16. "One Interne" 17. "The Fiend" 18. "Babylon Revisited" <br /> In The New York Times, critic Edith Walton gave Fitzgerald's final collection a mixed reception. "The characteristic seal of his brilliance stamps the entire book, but it is a brilliance which splutters off too frequently into mere razzle-dazzle." Citing the Basil Duke Lee stories as "small masterpieces," Walton called Babylon Revisited "probably the most mature and substantial story in the book. A rueful, though incomplete, farewell to the Jazz Age, its setting is Paris and its tone one of anguish for past follies." Walton continues, "It has become a dreadful commonplace to say that Mr. Fitzgerald's material is rarely worthy of his talents. Unfortunately, however, the platitude represents truth. Scott Fitzgerald's mastery of style — swift, sure, polished, firm — is so complete that even his most trivial efforts are dignified by his technical competence. All his writing has a glamorous gloss upon it; it is always entertaining; it is always beautifully executed."<br /><br /> <b>About F.

29 I'd Die for You

Genre :  Literary  Books  Fiction & Literature  Classics  Short Stories

Release Date :  2017-04-25
Description :  <b>A collection including the last complete unpublished short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the iconic American writer of <i>The Great Gatsby</i> who is more widely read today than ever.</b><br /><br /><i>I’d Die For You</i> is a collection of the last remaining unpublished and uncollected short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, edited by Anne Margaret Daniel. Fitzgerald did not design the stories in <i>I’d Die For You</i> as a collection. Most were submitted individually to major magazines during the 1930s and accepted for publication during Fitzgerald’s lifetime, but were never printed. Some were written as movie scenarios and sent to studios or producers, but not filmed. Others are stories that could not be sold because their subject matter or style departed from what editors expected of Fitzgerald. They date from the earliest days of Fitzgerald’s career to the last. They come from various sources, from libraries to private collections, including those of Fitzgerald’s family.<br /><br />Readers will experience Fitzgerald writing about controversial topics, depicting young men and women who actually spoke and thought more as young men and women did, without censorship. Rather than permit changes and sanitizing by his contemporary editors, Fitzgerald preferred to let his work remain unpublished, even at a time when he was in great need of money and review attention.<br /><br />“I’d Die For You,” the collection’s title story, is drawn from Fitzgerald’s stays in the mountains of North Carolina when his health, and that of his wife Zelda, was falling apart. With the addition of a Hollywood star and film crew to the Smoky Mountain lakes and pines, Fitzgerald brings in the cinematic world in which he would soon be living. Most of the stories printed here come from this time period, during the middle and late1930s, though the collection spans Fitzgerald’s career from 1920 to the end of his life.<br /><br />The book is subtitled <i>And Other Lost Stories</i> in recognition of an absence until now. Some of the eighteen stories were physically lost, coming to light only in the past few years. All were lost, in one sense or another: lost in the painful shuffle of the difficulties of Fitzgerald’s life in the middle 1930s; lost to readers because contemporary editors did not understand or accept what he was trying to write; lost because archives are like that, and good things can wait patiently in libraries for many centuries sometimes. <i>I’d Die For You And Other Lost Stories</i> echoes as well the nostalgia and elegy in Gertrude Stein’s famous phrase “a lost generation,” that generation for whom Fitzgerald was a leading figure.<br /><br />Written in his characteristically beautiful, sharp, and surprising language, exploring themes both familiar and fresh, these stories provide new insight into the bold and uncompromising arc of Fitzgerald’s career. <i>I’d Die For You </i>is a revealing, intimate look at Fitzgerald’s creative process that shows him to be a writer working at the fore of modern literature—in all its developing complexities.

Published in 1920, and taking its title from a line of the Rupert Brooke poem Tiare Tahiti, the book examines the lives and morality of post-World War I youth. Its protagonist, Amory Blaine, is an attractive Princeton University student who dabbles in literature. The novel explores the theme of love warped by greed and status-seeking.<br /><br /> This book is written in three parts.<br /><br /> "Book One: The Romantic Egotist"—the novel centers on Amory Blaine, a young Midwesterner who, convinced that he has an exceptionally promising future, attends boarding school and later Princeton University. He leaves behind his eccentric mother Beatrice and befriends a close friend of hers, Monsignor Darcy. While at Princeton he goes back to Minneapolis where he re-encounters Isabelle Borgé, a young lady whom he met as a little boy and starts a romantic relationship with her, but after a few days he becomes disillusioned by her and returns to Princeton.<br /><br /> "Interlude"—Following their break-up, Amory is shipped overseas, to serve in the army in World War I. Fitzgerald had been in the army himself, but the war ended while he was still stationed on Long Island. Amory's experiences in the war are not described, other than to say later in the book that he was a bayonet instructor.<br /><br /> "Book Two: The Education of a Personage"—After the war, Amory Blaine falls in love with a New York debutante named Rosalind Connage. Because he is poor, however, this relationship collapses as well; Rosalind decides to marry a wealthy man instead. A devastated Amory is further crushed to learn that his mentor Monsignor Darcy has died. The book ends with Amory's iconic lament, "I know myself, but that is all."<br /><br /> <b>About the Author</b><b><br /> </b><b>F.

33 The Great Gatsby

Author : F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $1.99
Release Date :  2017-04-21
Description :  In 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple + intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's--and his country's--most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning--" Gatsby's rise to glory and eventual fall from grace becomes a kind of cautionary tale about the American Dream.<br />It's also a love story, of sorts, the narrative of Gatsby's quixotic passion for Daisy Buchanan. The pair meet five years before the novel begins, when Daisy is a legendary young Louisville beauty and Gatsby an impoverished officer. They fall in love, but while Gatsby serves overseas, Daisy marries the brutal, bullying, but extremely rich Tom Buchanan. After the war, Gatsby devotes himself blindly to the pursuit of wealth by whatever means--and to the pursuit of Daisy, which amounts to the same thing. "Her voice is full of money," Gatsby says admiringly, in one of the novel's more famous descriptions. His millions made, Gatsby buys a mansion across Long Island Sound from Daisy's patrician East Egg address, throws lavish parties, and waits for her to appear. When she does, events unfold with all the tragic inevitability of a Greek drama, with detached, cynical neighbor Nick Carraway acting as chorus throughout. Spare, elegantly plotted, and written in crystalline prose, The Great Gatsby is as perfectly satisfying as the best kind of poem.<br />* * *<br />"Now we have an American masterpiece in its final form: the original crystal has shaped itself into the true diamond. This is the novel as Fitzgerald wished it to be, and so it is what we have dreamed of, sleeping and waking." -- James Dickey<br />* * *<br />The Great Gatsby is a novel by the American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. First published on April 10, 1925, it is set on Long Island's North Shore and in New York City during the summer of 1922.<br />The novel takes place following the First World War. American society enjoyed prosperity during the "roaring" 1920s as the economy soared. At the same time, Prohibition, the ban on the sale and manufacture of alcohol as mandated by the Eighteenth Amendment, made millionaires out of bootleggers. After its republishing in 1945 and 1953, it quickly found a wide readership and is today widely regarded as a paragon of the Great American Novel, and a literary classic. The Great Gatsby has become a standard text in high school and university courses on American literature in countries around the world, and is ranked second in the Modern Library's lists of the 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century.

34 The Beautiful and Damned

Description :  <i>"If I wanted anything, I'd take it... I can't be bothered resisting things I want."</i>&#xa0;<br /><br /> First published in 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel <b><i>The Beautiful and Damned</i></b><i> </i>portrays the Eastern elite during the Jazz Age, exploring New York Café Society. The story is believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's stormy relationship with Zelda Fitzgerald.&#xa0;<br /><br /> This is the tale of young couple Anthony and Gloria Patch living out their days to the hilt in New York City as they await the death of Anthony's grandfather, Adam Patch from whom they expect to inherit his massive fortune. They drink and eat in the classiest restaurants and hotels, rent the most expensive apartments, travel out to the West in the spring time driving plush cars, wearing top-of-the-line clothing and just generally living it up high on the hog, as they wait. But as time goes on their lust for life and their similarities threaten to destroy their innocence and their relationship.&#xa0;<br /><br /> A fierce parable about the illusory quality of dreams, the intractable nature of reality, and the ruin wrought by time, <b><i>The Beautiful and Damned</i></b> eerily anticipates the dissipation and decline that would come to the Fitzgeralds themselves before the decade had run its course.&#xa0;<br /><br /> <i>“A curious combination of energy and weariness, eagerness and cruelty.”&#xa0;</i><br /> <i>- </i>The New Republic.&#xa0;

Description :  The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a short story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and published in 1922. The story was later created as a Hollywood film starring Brad Pitt. The story is about a man who ages in reverse: He is born a feeble 70-year-old and becomes younger as the years progress. This faithful graphic-novel adaptation chronicles Benjamin Button's many adventures: He falls in love with a woman who ages normally (this causes complications), starts a family, and establishes a successful business. In his later years, he attends Harvard as a student and plays on their football team. By the time he is an old man, Benjamin Button resembles a newborn baby. And then he remembered nothing.Through the noons and nights he breathed and over him there were soft mumblings and murmurings that he scarcely heard, and faintly differentiated smells, and light and darkness.

Release Date :  2013-05-14
Description :  Between the First World War and the Wall Street Crash the French Riviera was the stylish place for wealthy Americans to visit. Among the most fashionable are the Divers, Dick and Nicole who hold court at their villa. Into their circle comes Rosemary Hoyt, a film star, who is instantly attracted to them, but understands little of the dark secrets and hidden corruption that hold them together. As Dick draws closer to Rosemary, he fractures the delicate structure of his marriage and sets both Nicole and himself on to a dangerous path where only the strongest can survive. In this exquisite, lyrical novel, Fitzgerald has poured much of the essence of his own life; he has also depicted the age of materialism, shattered idealism and broken dreams.

Description :  About the Book<br /> The Pat Hobby stories<br /><br /> The Pat Hobby Stories are a collection of 17 short stories written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, first published by Arnold Gingrich of Esquire magazine between January 1940 and May 1941, and later collected in one volume in 1962. The last installments in Esquire of The Pat Hobby Stories were published posthumously; Fitzgerald had died in 1940.<br /><br /> Pat Hobby is a down-and-out screenwriter in Hollywood, once successful as "a good man for structure" during the silent age of cinema, but now reduced to an alcoholic hack hanging around the studio lot. Most stories find him broke and engaged in some ploy for money or a much-desired screen credit, but his antics usually backfire and end in further humiliation. Drawing on his own experiences as a writer in Hollywood, Scott Fitzgerald portrays Pat Hobby with (self-)mocking humor and nostalgia.<br /><br /> Arnold Gingrich, in an introduction to The Pat Hobby Stories, notes how, "while it would be unfair to judge this book as a novel, it would be less than fair to consider it as anything but a full-length portrait. It was as such that Fitzgerald worked on it, and would have wanted it presented in book form, after its original magazine publication. He thought of it as a comedy."<br /><br /> About the Author<br /> F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1896-1940<br /><br /> Fitzgerald is regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th Century.

41 Thank You for the Light

Author : F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre :  Short Stories  Books  Fiction & Literature  Literary 
Price :  $0.99
Release Date :  2012-11-13
Description :  <b>This newly discovered short story by one of the greatest writers of twentieth-century American literature, F. Scott Fitzgerald, will surprise and delight. <i>Thank You for the Light</i> is a masterfully crafted story—spare, strange, and wonderful, albeit a departure from Fitzgerald’s usual style.</b><br /><br />A widowed, corset saleswoman, Mrs. Hanson, whose chief pleasure in life is cigarettes, discovers that social disapproval of smoking is widespread in her new sales territory. Deprived of this simple comfort, she receives solace, and a light, from an unexpected source.<br /><br />Fitzgerald originally submitted the story to <i>The New Yorker</i> in 1936, four years before his death, but it was rejected. The editors said that it was “altogether out of the question” and added, “It seems to us so curious and so unlike the kind of thing we associate with him and really too fantastic.” Almost eighty years later, Fitzgerald’s grandchildren found the story among his papers and the Fitzgerald scholar James West encouraged them to send the story to the magazine once again. This time around the magazine decided to publish it, and now it is available in this special eBook edition.

Dick and Nicole Diver are a glamorous couple who take a villa in the South of France and surround themselves with a circle of friends, mainly Americans. Also staying at the resort are Rosemary Hoyt, a young actress, and her mother. Rosemary gets sucked into the circle of the Divers; she becomes infatuated with Dick and is also adopted as a close friend by Nicole. Dick first toys with the idea of an affair with Rosemary at this point, which he finally acts upon years later. Once into the book, the history of the Divers emerges.

This novel delves into the mysteries and complexities of marriage, taking as its focus the relationship of heir and bon vivant Anthony Patch and his wife Gloria, a couple that critics believe reflect many autobiographical elements of the tempestuous bond between F.

47 The Beautiful And Damned

Author : F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre :  Classics  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $0.99
Release Date :  2014-09-03
Description :  The novel provides a portrait of the Eastern elite during the Jazz Age, exploring New York Cafe Society. As with his other novels, Fitzgerald's characters are complex, especially in their marriage and intimacy, much like how he treats intimacy in Tender Is the Night. The book is believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's relationship and marriage with Zelda Fitzgerald.<br /><br /> "You know these new novels make me tired. My God! Everywhere I go some silly girl asks me if I've read 'This Side of Paradise.' Are our girls really like that? If it's true to life, which I don't believe, the next generation is going to the dogs. I'm sick of all this shoddy realism."<br /><br /> The novel concerns itself with the question of vocation—what does one do with oneself when one has nothing to do? writes Fitzgerald critic West. He says that Fitzgerald was concerned with the question of vocation for men as well as for women. In the novel, Fitzgerald presents Gloria as woman whose vocation is nothing more than to catch a husband. After her marriage to Anthony, Gloria's sole vocation is to slide into indolence and alcoholism; her husband's sole vocation is to wait for his inheritance.<br /><br /> <b>About the Author</b><br /> <b>F.

50 Tender is the Night

Author : F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre :  Classics  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $0.99
Release Date :  2013-08-13
Description :  This unique edition of Tender is the Night from Dead Dodo Vintage includes the full original text as well as exclusive features not available in other editions.<br /><br />Tender Is the Night is a novel by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. It was his fourth and final completed novel, and was first published in Scribner's Magazine between January–April, 1934 in four issues. The title is taken from the poem "Ode to a Nightingale" by John Keats.<br /><br />In 1932, Fitzgerald's wife Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald was hospitalized for schizophrenia in Baltimore, Maryland. The author rented the "la Paix" estate in the suburb of Towson to work on this book, the story of the rise and fall of Dick Diver, a promising young psychoanalyst and his wife, Nicole, who is also one of his patients. It was Fitzgerald's first novel in nine years, and the last that he would complete. While working on the book he several times ran out of cash and had to borrow from his editor and agent, and write short stories for commercial magazines. The early 1930s, when Fitzgerald was conceiving and working on the book, were certainly the darkest years of his life, and accordingly, the novel has its bleak elements.<br /><br />Two versions of this novel are in print. The first version, published in 1934, uses flashbacks while the second revised version, prepared by Fitzgerald's friend and noted critic Malcolm Cowley on the basis of notes for a revision left by Fitzgerald, is ordered chronologically; this version was first published posthumously in 1951. Critics have suggested that Cowley's revision was undertaken due to negative reviews of the temporal structure of the book on its first release. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Tender Is the Night 28th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.
