About the Author

F(rancis) Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on September 24, 1896. He was educated at Princeton University and served in the U.S. Army from 1917 to 1919, attaining the rank of second lieutenant. In 1920 Fitzgerald married Zelda Sayre, a young woman of the upper class, and they had a mostrar mais daughter, Frances. Fitzgerald is regarded as one of the finest American writers of the 20th Century. His most notable work was the novel, The Great Gatsby (1925). The novel focused on the themes of the Roaring Twenties and of the loss of innocence and ethics among the nouveau riche. He also made many contributions to American literature in the form of short stories, plays, poetry, music, and letters. Ernest Hemingway, who was greatly influenced by Fitzgerald's short stories, wrote that Fitzgerald's talent was "as fine as the dust on a butterfly's wing." Yet during his lifetime Fitzgerald never had a bestselling novel and, toward the end of his life, he worked sporadically as a screenwriter at motion picture studios in Los Angeles. There he contributed to scripts for such popular films as Winter Carnival and Gone with the Wind. Fitzgerald's work is inseparable from the Roaring 20s. Berenice Bobs Her Hair and A Diamond As Big As The Ritz, are two short stories included in his collections, Tales of the Jazz Age and Flappers and Philosophers. His first novel The Beautiful and Damned was flawed but set up Fitzgerald's major themes of the fleeting nature of youthfulness and innocence, unattainable love, and middle-class aspiration for wealth and respectability, derived from his own courtship of Zelda. This Side of Paradise (1920) was Fitzgerald's first unqualified success. Tender Is the Night, a mature look at the excesses of the exuberant 20s, was published in 1934. Much of Fitzgerald's work has been adapted for film, including Tender is the Night , The Great Gatsby, and Babylon Revisited which was adapted as The Last Time I Saw Paris by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1954. The Last Tycoon, adapted by Paramount in 1976, was a work in progress when Fitzgerald died of a heart attack on December 21, 1940, in Hollywood, California. Fitzgerald is buried in the historic St. Mary's Cemetery in Rockville, Maryland. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Pequena biografia
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and short-story writer, although he was best known for his novels depicting the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age—a term which he coined. During his lifetime, he published four novels, four collections of short stories, and 164 short stories. Although he temporarily achieved popular success and fortune in the 1920s, Fitzgerald only received wide critical and popular acclaim after his death. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

Fitzgerald was born into an upper-middle-class family in St. Paul, Minnesota, but was primarily raised in New York. He attended Princeton University, but due to a failed relationship and a preoccupation with writing, he dropped out in 1917 to join the army. While stationed in Alabama, he fell in love with rich socialite Zelda Sayre. Although she initially rejected him due to his financial situation, Zelda agreed to marry Fitzgerald after he had published the commercially successful This Side of Paradise (1920).

In the 1920s, Fitzgerald frequented Europe, where he was influenced by the modernist writers and artists of the "Lost Generation" expatriate community, particularly Ernest Hemingway. His second novel, The Beautiful and Damned (1922), propelled him into the New York City elite. To maintain his lifestyle during this time, he also wrote several stories for magazines. His third novel, The Great Gatsby (1925), was inspired by his rise to fame and relationship with Zelda. Although it received mixed reviews, The Great Gatsby is now widely praised, with some even labeling it the "Great American Novel". While Zelda was placed at a mental institute for her schizophrenia, Fitzgerald completed his final novel, Tender Is the Night (1934).

Faced with financial difficulties due to the declining popularity of his works, Fitzgerald turned to Hollywood, writing and revising screenplays. After a long struggle with alcoholism, he died in 1940, at the age of 44. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon (1941), was completed by Edmund Wilson and published after Fitzgerald's death.

Resenhas

A primeira história foi a minha favorita, porém assim como as outras duas, tiveram várias coisas e detalhes que ficaram ambíguos ou que simplesmente não foram explicados, não tiveram muitas explicações sobre os personagens ou algum tipo de "worldbuilding" mesmo em um livro curto como esse isso é um problema. A última história é literalmente o ditado; quem brinca com fogo se queima, mona você escolheu ficar de conversa com um zé ninguém do qual dizem que as mulheres se matam por ele, ela jurooouu meeeesmo que seria diferente com ela. Pra ficar melhor o final acho que as duas coitadas deveriam ter se unido para derrubá-lo ou algo do tipo e depois planejarem um date, achei muito querida a Atlanda dando um beijo na testa da outra e depois vazando, deixando a mona assim ? .
E aí, vai fazer o que?

Nick Carraway se muda para uma casa simples ao lado da mansão de Jay Gatsby, um misterioso milionário, que promove constantemente eventos luxuosos em sua residência, regado por gim e ao som do jazz. A vizinhança também é composta pelo rico Tom Buchanan, marido de Daisy, por quem Gatsby possui um amor incondicional. Carraway observa esse mundo extravagante, tão diferente, mas não distante, do seu, movido a riqueza e exuberância.

Scott Fitzgerald baseou-se em sua própria experiência de seu casamento com Zelda para pintar este retrato assombroso e muitas vezes assustador de um relacionamento naufragando nas rochas do sucesso social e financeiro. Dick Diver, um psiquiatra de sucesso, nada pode fazer para evitar o declínio mental movido pelo álcool de sua esposa . Uma vez casados, Nicole e Dick vão viver na Villa Diana, na Riviera Francesa, em 1925, entre os ricos. A família de Nicole é muito rica e seu dinheiro sustenta o bom estilo de vida que ela e Dick desfrutam aqui.
Essas cenas na Riviera capturam perfeitamente como deve ter sido a vida de Scott e Zelda Fitzgerald quando estavam lá com o beautiful people do cenário internacional da época. Os Divers são um casal carismático; todos querem ser seus amigos. Mas essa vida brilhante é apenas o pano de fundo para o condenado romance . Vítima de incesto, Nicole está sujeita a colapsos e foi diagnosticada como maníaco-depressiva.
