Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Commemorating the 100th anniversary of his birth, these essays present a middle-aged Fitzgerald looking back on the era he came to epitomize. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Fitzgerald's 1922 collection isn't his strongest work, but it does contain gems like "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz." This edition also sports several additional stories not included in the original, such as "Diamond Dick, "The Third Casket," and "The Unspeakable Egg," plus a scholarly introduction and other goodies by editor West. Nice if you can afford it. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
With September 24 marking what would have been Fitzgerald's 100th birthday, it is fitting that a book bearing his name and entitled The Jazz Age should emerge, for the two are inseparable in the minds of the reading public. This book of five confessional essays from the 1930s follows Scott and Zelda from the height of their celebrity as the darlings of the 1920s to years of rapid decline leading to the self-proclaimed "Crack Up" in 1936. The poetics of Fitzgerald's style are not lost in nonfiction, and these pieces display some of his finest writing. This volume contains an introduction by E.L. Doctorow.
Booknews
US writer Scott (1896-1940) published the collection of short stories in 1922. Editor James L. W. West III (English, Pennsylvania State U.) characterizes it as uneven, but calls attention to May Day and The Diamond as Big as the Ritz as masterpieces. In addition to the 12 stories of the original collection, he adds seven more written between May 1923 and March 1925, a record of variants, notes explaining period references, photographs of a couple manuscript pages, and information on the first publications of the stories.
