About this product
- DescriptionThe Crack-Up tells the story of Fitzgerald's sudden descent at the age of thirty-nine from glamorous success to empty despair, and his determined recovery. Compiled and edited by Edmund Wilson shortly after F. Scott Fitzgerald's death, this revealing collection of his essays-as well as letters to and from Gertrude Stein, Edith Wharton, T.S. Eliot, John Dos Passos-tells of a man with charm and talent to burn, whose gaiety and genius made him a living symbol of the Jazz Age, and whose recklessness brought him grief and loss. Fitzgerald's physical and spiritual exhaustion is described brilliantly, ted The New York Review of Books: the essays are amazing for the candor.
- Author BiographyF. 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.
