Description

A LIFE IN LETTERS is the most comprehensive volume of Fitzgerald's letters to have been published in the UK; many appear in print here for the first time. Spanning over thirty years, these letters chronicle Fitzgerald's artistic and emotional development through his own words. What emerges is not only the familiar Fitzgerald - the hard-drinking, glamorous decadent of the Jazz Age - but also the writer expressing deep concerns about his art, and the man whose relationships with family and friends were often fraught with conflict and insecurity.

About F. Scott Fitzgerald

Fitzgerald is one of America's greatest and most written-about authors. His seemingly effortless style, brilliant evocation of time and place and vivid insights into human behaviour have given him an enduring place in American literature. The majority of his work, both novels and short stories, is published by Penguin on the Twentieth Century Classics list - with titles such as THE GREAT GATSBY remaining perennial best-sellers.
