Overview

First published in 1922, The Beautiful and the Damned is F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel. Exploring the elite of New York Café Society, the novel brilliantly captures the louche, sometimes decadent lifestyle of the Eastern elite during the Jazz Age. Fitzgerald's characters - as in all his novels - are complex, difficult people, and Anthony Patch, a 1920s socialite and presumptive heir to a tycoon's fortune, is one of Fitzgerald's most memorable protagonists. His relationship with his wife Gloria, his service in the army, and descent into alcoholism are believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's own relationship and marriage to Zelda Fitzgerald.

Meet the Author

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald rose to prominence during the 1920's as an author of novels and short stories that defined the era known as "the Jazz Age". Considered by many to be one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. He completed numerous short stories but only four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, Tender is the Night and his most famous, The Great Gatsby. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published after his death. His many short stories dealt with themes of youth and promise along with despair and age. The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night were both made into films.
