Publisher Comments:

Paris in the 20s: The era of literary expatriates Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald continues to burn in the imagination as a time of unparalleled glamour and romance. Here, in Hemingway vs. Fitzgerald, prize-winning biographer Scott Donaldson goes beyond the mythologyzing to create a true, multi-faceted narrative of a great friendship fueled by admiration, jealousy, and liquor-a heady mixture of literary scholarship, history, and gossip.

The friendship started in Paris and the French Riviera where the more famous Fitzgerald introduced novice writer Hemingway to Gertrude Stein and socialites Gerald and Sara Murphy. As the years progressed, the friendship became as mercurial and complex as the writers themselves. With a dazzling cast of characters that includes legendary Scribner's editor Maxwell Perkins, Zelda Fitzgerald and Hadley Hemingway, and writers Morley Callaghan and Edmund Wilson, Scott Donaldson recounts the glory and pain the great literary friendship of our time.

Synopsis:

This chronicle of the friendship of two of America's literary titans goes beyond the myth to create a true, multi-faceted narrative of a great friendship fueled by admiration, jealousy, and liquor--a heady mixture of literary scholarship, history, and gossip. 29 photos.
