Forgotten Fitzgerald

Echoes of a Lost America

While F. Scott Fitzgerald was writing the novels we remember him for today, he was also publishing short stories in popular magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and Esquire. Although many of Fitzgerald´s short stories are celebrated and anthologised today, more remain out of print than would be expected for a writer of his stature.

Sarah Churchwell, author of the acclaimed Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and the Invention of The Great Gatsby, has selected twelve forgotten stories from throughout Fitzgerald´s career that refract, in different ways, his most familiar motifs: the changing meanings of America in the first decades of the twentieth century, and the desire to reconcile rich and poor through a romantic search for glamour, hope and wonder. Each of these stories offers a riff on the theme of an America that we have lost.

Here are twelve stories that deserve to be rediscovered.

Praise for Careless People

´A suggestive, almost musical evocation of the spirit of the time´ London Review of Books

´A must read, as glamorous as it is clever´ Viv Groskop, Red Book of the Month

These hidden diamonds will delight lovers of jazz-age America Lady
Portrait

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was considered a member of the ´Lost Generation´, along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself - and The Great Gatsby is often considered to be ´the great American novel´.

Sarah Churchwell is Professorial Fellow in American Literature and Chair of Public Understanding of the Humanities at the School of Advanced Study, University of London. She is Director of Being Human Festival and Living Literature, and the author of The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe (Granta 2004), co-editor of Must Read: Rediscovering the Bestseller (Continuum 2012), and author of various scholarly articles, chapters and introductions. Her journalism has appeared in the Guardian, the New Statesman, the Independent, the New York Times Book Review, the TLS, the Observer, the Times, the Telegraph, the Spectator, and the Financial Times, among others, and she frequently appears on UK television and radio, discussing arts, culture and all things American. She lives in London with her English husband.
