PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Short Stories Today F Scott Fitzgerald is known for his novels but in his lifetime his fame stemmed from his prolific achievement as one of America s most gifted and best paid writers of stories and novellas .
In The Short Stories of F Scott Fitzgerald Matthew J Bruccoli the country s premier Fitzgerald scholar and biographer assembles a sparkling collection that encompasses the full scope of Fitzgerald s short fiction .
The forty three masterpieces range from early stories that capture the fashion of the times to later ones written after the author s fabled crack up which are sober reflections on his own youthful excesses .
Included are classic novellas such as The Rich Boy May Day and The Diamond as Big as the Ritz as well as a remarkable body of work he wrote for the Saturday Evening Post and its sister slicks .
These stories can be read as an autobiographical journal of a great writer s career an experience deepened by the illuminating introductory headnotes that Matthew Bruccoli has written for each story placing it in its literary and biographical context .
Together these forty three stories compose a vivid picture of a lost era but their brilliance is timeless As Malcolm Cowley once wrote Fitzgerald remains an exemplar and archetype but not of the s alone in the end he represents the human spirit in one of its permanent forms .
This essential collection is ample testament to that statement and a monument to the genius of one of the great voices in the history of American literature
