On Booze

Available

Description

First you take a drink, F. Scott Fitzgerald once noted, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you. Fitzgerald wrote alcohol into almost every one of his stories. On Booze gathers debutantes and dandies, rowdy jazz musicians, lost children and ragtime riff-raff into a newly compiled collection taken from The Crack-Up, and other works never before published by New Directions. On Booze portrays The Jazz Age as Fitzgerald experienced it: roaring, rambunctious, and lush with quite a hangover."

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896. He attended Princeton University, joined the United States Army during World War I, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. That same year he married Zelda Sayre and for the next decade the couple lived in New York, Paris, and on the Riviera. Fitzgerald's masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. He died at the age of forty-four while working on The Last Tycoon. Fitzgerald's fiction has secured his reputation as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.

Reviews

Smart, sophisticated, and evocative.
Smart, sophisticated, and evocative. "
His writing is a kind of subdued magic, controlled and exquisite, the sort of thing you get from good string quartets. --Raymond Chandler"
His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly s wings. --Ernest Hemingway"
