Description
This second novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a devastating portrait of the excesses of the Jazz Age—a largely autobiographical depiction of a glamorous, reckless Manhattan couple and their downward spiral. Anthony Patch and Gloria Gibson are among the golden children of the 1920s. They marry and embark on a life of glittering parties, lavish expenditure, and scandalous revelry, but when the money dries up their marriage founders. In this wistful novel Fitzgerald portrays the decline of youthful promise with devastating clarity. Published on the heels of This Side of Paradise, the story is at once a gripping morality tale, a rueful meditation on love, marriage, and money, and an acute social document, propelled by Fitzgerald's intense romantic imagination and demonstrating an increased technical and emotional maturity.

"If Fitzgerald had not existed, it would have been necessary to invent him. Seldom has there been a character who personified, as well as chronicled, an age with such dexterity and verisimilitude."—Sunday Times (London)
