One of Fitzgerald's best-known works, this glittering novel is set against an era of intoxicating excitement and ruinous excess. Hilarious and heartbreaking, this is a scathing, ironic tale of a couple that parallels the real-life relationship of Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, from its romantic beginning to its tragic end. This edition features a lively Introduction with biographical and historical background, and critical essays. (July)
