This Side of Paradise (Legend Classics) (F Scott Fitzgerald)
Part of the Legend Classics series
I'm not sentimental--I'm as romantic as you are. The idea, you know, is that the sentimental person thinks things will last--the romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won't.
From one of the finest American writers of the twentieth century, This Side of Paradise was rumoured to have helped F. Scott Fitzgerald gain Zelda's hand in marriage.
Amory Blaine is an ambitious, aspiring young writer, haunted by intellectual curiosity, doomed relationships, adolescence, and the danger of seeking status in the early-twentieth century.
This is vintage Fitzgerald, a perfect example of his ability to capture a particular period of American history.
With this modern edition, you can dive into the back catalogue of a writer synonymous with both the flamboyant Jazz Age and the lost generation of 1920s America.
