From the Publisher
'Ruth Prigozy has done a wonderful job of ensuring that her contributors write in an accessible and jargon-free style and cover the full range of Fitzgerald's writings … If … the editor's aim was to produce 'a full and accessible picture' of the author's life and career, then she is to be congratulated on having assembled a set of contributors who provide exactly that.'
