|F. Scott Fitzgerald|

|The Short Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald: A New Collection|
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Matthew J. Bruccoli (Editor)
Bruccoli's collection of 43 Fitzgerald short pieces includes 23 not featured the 1951 collection presented by Malcolm Cowley. Initially published in magazines like The Saturday Evening Post, the stories brought their author much-needed cash -- but distracted Fitzgerald from work on his novels.
