Forgotten Fitzgerald Echoes of a Lost America Synopsis

While F. Scott Fitzgerald was writing the novels we remember him for today, he was also publishing short stories in popular magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and Esquire. Although many of Fitzgerald's short stories are celebrated and anthologised today, more remain out of print than would be expected for a writer of his stature. Some of these forgotten stories deserve to be rediscovered by the many readers who love Fitzgerald's work. Sarah Churchwell, author of the acclaimed Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and the Invention of The Great Gatsby, has selected eleven forgotten stories from throughout Fitzgerald's career that refract, in different ways, his most familiar motifs: the changing meanings of America in the first decades of the twentieth century, and the desire to reconcile rich and poor through a romantic search for glamour, hope and wonder.

The Good Book Guide Review

On his tragic early death, the great American novelist F Scott Fitzgerald left behind a substantial body of work; four completed novels and nearly 200 short stories. While his novels and many of the stories have remained in circulation, a good number have been neglected. In this timely collection, Fitzgerald scholar Sarah Churchwell brings together twelve of these forgotten stories from across the author’s career, featuring his trademark exploration of the American consciousness, jazz-age glamour and despair, and investigating themes of idealism and identity. A great treat for Fitzgerald fans, this is a wonderful addition to the great writer’s hitherto available work.
