I’d Die for You: And Other Lost Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I’d Die for You: And Other Lost Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Short story and F. Scott Fitzgerald aficionados will rejoice with this newly published collection by one of the twentieth century’s renowned authors. With these “lost” stories, another side of Fitzgerald emerges, unlike the madcap and glittering 1920s flapper stories of the Jazz Age he is known for. Inspired by events in his own life–his wife Zelda’s institutionalization, his own health issues, his life in Hollywood, his father–as well as current events of the times–the Great Depression, for example– these are darker stories that his usual magazines (The Saturday Evening Post, Esquire) rejected and that he refused to edit. His talent was amazing and, with these rich stories, permanently cements his reputation as one of the greatest writers of our time.
