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.
