From the author of The Great Gatsby comes a beautiful tale of love, wealth and destruction - set to the backdrop of the 1920s French Riviera.
Born in 1896, Fitzgerald was considered a member of the 'Lost Generation', along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself. His masterpieces include: The Great Gatsby, This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned and Tender is the Night. His fifth, unfinished, novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published after his death.
Book of a lifetime...suffused as it is with both the glamour and poignancy of Fitzgerald's own life: in particular, the failure of his marriage to the lovely, unbalanced Zelda and his acute sense of himself as a great and a ruined artist - INDEPENDENT[Tender is the Night is] the novel Fitzgerald liked best of the four he published during his lifetime...has been quietly assuming, over the years, something like the status of an American classic - THE NEW YORKER
