About F. Scott Fitzgerald

  • Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American fiction writer, whose works helped to illustrate the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age.
  • While he achieved popular success, fame, and fortune in his lifetime, he did not receive much critical acclaim until after his death.
  • Perhaps the most notable member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s, Fitzgerald is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
  • He finished four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night.
  • A fifth, unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon, was published posthumously.
  • Four collections of his short stories were published, as well as 164 short stories in magazines during his lifetime.
