Specially-commissioned essays by major scholars present a clear and comprehensive assessment of F. Scott Fitzgerald. No aspect of his career is overlooked--from his first novel published in 1920, through his more than 170 short stories, to his last unfinished Hollywood novel. Contributions present the reader with an accessible picture of the background of American social and cultural change in the early decades of the twentieth century. The volume offers readers a complete account of Fitzgerald's work as well as suggestions for further reading.

Editorial Reviews

'Ruth Prigozy has done a wonderful job of ensuring that her contributors write in an accessible and jargon-free style and cover the full range of Fitzgerald's writings ... If ... the editor's aim was to produce 'a full and accessible picture' of the author's life and career, then she is to be congratulated on having assembled a set of contributors who provide exactly that.'
