About F. Scott Fitzgerald

Chief chronicler of the American Jazz Age, Fitzgerald (1896 - 1940) pursued a high life similar to that of his characters. He spent much of the 1920s shuttling back and forth between America and Europe, while money troubles and the deteriorating mental health of his wife Zelda led to his having to churn out work in order to keep afloat. He endured three unhappy spells as a screenwriter in Hollywood, which resulted in his final (unfinished) novel, 'The Last Tycoon'. He died suddenly in 1940.
