Often overshadowed by his major novels, Fitzgerald's short stories demonstrate the same originality and inventive range, as he chronicles with wry and astute observation the temper of the hedonistic 1920s. Here is the only critical edition of Tales of the Jazz Age available in paperback as
first published. It was Fitzgerald's second collection of stories, and it contains some of the best of his short fiction, including May Day and The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, two of his greatest, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, recently adapted into a full-length movie. The
collection also highlights Fitzgerald's ability to work in a variety of forms--parody, a one-act play, fantasy--with unrivalled versatility. Fitzgerald scholar Jackson R. Bryer provides an in-depth appreciation of the stories and examines the making of the volume and its reception. The volume also
includes an up-to-date bibliography, a chronology of the author's life and work, and explanatory notes identifying contemporary references and allusions.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert
introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Notă biografică

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in 1896 in St Paul, Minnesota, and went to Princeton University, which he left in 1917 to join the army. He was said to have epitomized the Jazz Age, which he himself denied as 'a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken'. In 1920 he married Zelda Sayre. Their traumatic marriage and her subsequent breakdowns became the leading influence in his writing. Among his publications were five novels, This Side of Paradise, The Great Gatsby, The Beautiful and Damned, Tender is the Night and The Last Tycoon (his last and unfinished work); six volumes of short stories and The Crack-­Up, a selection of autobiographical pieces. Fitzgerald died suddenly in 1940. After his death The New York Times said of him that 'He was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a "generation" ... he might have interpreted and even guided them, as in their middle years they saw a different and nobler freedom threatened with destruction.'

Recenzii

"Tales of the Jazz Age is a superb edition of classic literature that would grace any academic or library collection--and is 'must' reading for F. Scott Fitzgerald enthusiasts and fans." The Midwest Book Review
