The author who brought us the perennially bestselling novel The Great Gatsby was also a prolific author of short stories. This collection includes "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" and "The Jelly-Bean," two of Fitzgerald's finest stories of the Jazz Age. The first tells of a young woman who doesn't fit in her cousin's social life, and the second of love and social class.
Francis Scott (Key) Fitzgerald's (1896-1940) posthumous literary reputation has remained consistently strong despite many highs and lows throughout his brief life. His best-known novel, The Great Gatsby (1925) remains a critical favorite along with Tender is the Night (1934). Most of Fitzgerald's works are loosely based on his life, including his wife Zelda's insanity and his appreciation for personal indulgence and self-destructive excess.
