Description

"First you take a drink," F. Scott Fitzgerald once noted, "then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you." Fitzgerald wrote alcohol into almost every one of his stories. On Booze gathers debutantes and dandies, rowdy jazz musicians, lost children and ragtime riff-raff into a newly compiled collection taken from The Crack-Up, and other works. On Booze portrays "The Jazz Age" as Fitzgerald experienced it: roaring, rambunctious, and lush - with quite a hangover.

About F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1941) was one of the literary titans of the 20th century. A member of the 'Lost Generation' of the 1920s, Fitzgerald's writings best captured what he termed 'The Jazz Age', a period of declining traditional American values, prohibition and speakeasies, and great leaps in modernist trends.
