Description
A dazzling novel that captures all of the romance, glamour, and tragedy of the first flapper, Zelda Fitzgerald Picture a late-May morning in 1918, a time when Montgomery wore her prettiest spring dress and finest floral perfume-same as I would wear that evening. Thus begins the story of beautiful, reckless, seventeen-year-old Zelda Sayre on the day she meets Lieutenant Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald at a country club dance. Fitzgerald isn't rich or settled; no one knows his people; and he wants, of all things, to be a writer in New York. No matter how wildly in love they may be, Zelda's father firmly opposes the match. But when Scott finally sells his first novel, This Side of Paradise, Zelda defies her parents and boards a train to New York to marry him in the vestry of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Life is a sudden whirl of glamour and excitement: Everyone wants to meet the dashing young author of the scandalous novel-and his beautiful, perhaps even more scandalous wife. Zelda bobs her hair, trades in her provincial finery for daring dresses and plunges into the endless party that welcomes the darlings of the literary world to New York, then Paris and the French Riviera. It is the Jazz Age, when everything seems new and possible-except that dazzling success does not always last. Surrounded by a thrilling array of magnificent hosts and mercurial geniuses-including Sara and Gerald Murphy, Gertrude Stein, and the great and terrible Ernest Hemingway-Zelda and Scott find the future both grander and stranger than they could have ever imagined.
