Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Bruccoli gives [us]...a virtually new and vastly amplified Fitzgerald." — Joseph Coates, Chicago Tribune

"This is a valuable collection, whether one reads the stories to delight in Fitzgerald's style, to conjure up a lost era, to learn more about the career of a great American novelist, or simply to gain insight into the human condition." — Leonard A. Podis, The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"One pleasure of rereading Fitzgerald's stories now is to rediscover just how good some of them in fact are, and how brilliant a handful." — Jay McInerney, The New York Review of Books

"More than enough to re-establish Fitzgerald as a master of the American short story." — Mark Caldwell, The Philadelphia Inquirer
