Hilarious, brilliant, and at times, knowing the author's own experiences, a bit poignant. No stories today come near these stories' wordcraft and sharp but touching humor.

Ever since I first read 'The Great Gatsby' I have been hooked on Fitzgerald. I quickly read all of his full length novels, and stumbled upon collections of his short stories. 'The Pat Hobby' collection is extremely witty and reveals a comedic side to Fitz that is not prominent in his other work. A must read.
