Newest Study on Zelda Fitzgerald Offers 3-Dimensional View
Soon to be available in the US, this new biography of Zelda Fitzgerald will be a long-awaited treat for those who have placed an advanced order! Sally Cline's wit and wisdom in this tale about a well- known, but highly misunderstood creative and courageous woman, bring to life this much-analyzed literary figure. Through the use of Zelda's own "Voice," Cline helps readers feel what Zelda felt and know what she knew, while still continuing to play the role of the heroine in both her and Scott's fiction, as portrait of courage, with grace under pressure. Debunking many myths about Zelda, heretofore held as Truths, Cline spins a yarn with the golden fleece of a poet's soul. A definite must-read for any Fitzgerald scholar, or anyone who wants to learn why we cling to the myths about women eclipsed by their famous husbands. Cline portrays both Fitzgeralds in a very empathetic way. A very commendable trait for an author who has to approach her subject with an open mind.Was this review helpful?
