Drawing from a vast array of original source materials, including letters, autobiography, correspondence, reviews, and interviews with those who knew him, including his daughter Scottie, the author assembles the records of Fitzgerald's career not only as a literary artist and professional writer but also as a young man, husband, father and lover, and Hollywood screenwriter. This comprehensive and compelling collection includes more than 2,200 extensively cross-referenced entries on Fitzgerald's life and work; detailed synopses of all his major and most of his minor works; descriptions of all characters, fictional and factual, and coverage of all settings of his works; an overview of the critical reception to each of his works; and discussions of important people in his life, including family, friends, and literary associates. The entries are enhanced by more than 75 original illustrations of first-edition dust jackets, family photographs and portraits, memorabilia from Fitzgerald's private collection, and personal photos, some never before published in one source.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-An essential book for anyone interested in Fitzgerald. This marvelous encyclopedia encompasses not only facts about the writer's life and works, but also his family, his influence (and influences upon him), and even his editors. One need only turn to an alphabetical listing of a title, a character, or even a friend (or associate) to find concise and insightful information. The Great Gatsby is required reading in most high schools today, and this book is the ultimate research tool for anyone interested, either by choice or assignment. Unfortunately, most young adults will explore its gems of information solely because they are compelled to do so. Mature readers, once they begin perusing this excellently written and catalogued work, may find themselves reading everything by Fitzgerald, the addicting voice of not only the "Lost Generation," but of every generation that is emotional or romantic, or both.-William Byrd, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
Contains a vast compendium of information on all the works, along with many biographical details. Includes rare and rarely seen items from the private collection of Matthew J. Bruccoli, Fitzgerald scholar and archivist, including first edition book covers, handwritten notes and letters, photos, manuscript pages, telegrams, and Fitzgerald's private ledgers. Other entries include synopses, information on major literary icons of the time, and descriptions of all the places Fitzgerald lived and worked. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
