Meet the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. Upon graduating from Princeton, he served in the Army and worked briefly in advertising. He married his wife, Zelda, in 1920, a week after his first novel, This Side of Paradise, was published. His works, considered by many to be classics, include The Great Gatsby, Tender is the Night, and the uncompleted The Last Tycoon. He died of a heart attack at the age of 44.

Blythe Danner, a Tony® winner, has starred in numerous Broadway productions, and in such films as Meet the Parents, The Great Santini, and The Prince of Tides; she played Zelda Fitzgerald in the telefilm, F. Scott Fitzgerald and "The Last of the Belles."
