7 Meyers, Jeffrey Scott Fitzgerald A Biography
London Macmillan 1994 Hardcover Very Good Good 24 Cm 
Scott Fitzgerald, a romantic and tragic figure who embodied the decades between the two world wars, was a writer who took his material almost entirely from his life: "My characters are all Scott Fitzgerald. Even the female characters are Scott Fitzgerald." In this much-needed new biography, Jeffrey Meyers offers a perceptive interpretation of both the life and the work of one of America's finest novelists. Despite his early success with The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald's life became a battle against failure and disappointment. Struggling for artistic integrity, he compromised his talent to support his extravagant way of life. His friend and lifelong hero, Ernest Hemingway, was a harsh critic of both his behavior and his novels. reviews >>> This book is a cross between a biography and a history textbook. It takes each chapter and focuses on his life and its comparison with a book he wrote. and >>> This is truly one of the saddest books I have ever read, but I loved it. What a flawed, gifted man. 900g 400pp photo section amidships.

12 Runyon, Damon Runyon from First to Last : Containing the Stories not included in Runyon on Broadway
U.K. Constable 1964 Hardcover Very Good Fair 
Runyon from First to Last : Containing the Stories not included in Runyon on Broadway review >>> covers some interesting but largely forgotten stuff like the violent strikebreaking action against the Wobblies before World War 1, and the Last bits are ruminations on mortality as Runyon neared death. This guy is a great writer, with a unique style - at least in the Broadway bits - which can encapsulate tragedy and comedy in the same paragraph, even the same sentence. Buy this book - and the other one: you won't regret it. and >>> This collection of Runyon's short stories tells tales as good as any film noir. He takes you to a world of criminal exploit as a casual onlooker if not a junior participant. He has some great turns of phrase, "ever loving wife", I'll leave the rest to you to enjoy. Sit back, with some time on your hands and be entertained. They don't make them like this too often. 478pp, dj has wear to edges, owner name.
