Publisher Comments:

Here is a portrait of greed, ambition, and squandered talent, as depicted in the lives of the very wealthy Anthony Patch and his willful wife Gloria.

Synopsis:

One of Fitzgerald's best-known works, this glittering novel is set against an era of intoxicating excitement and ruinous excess. Hilarious and heartbreaking, this is a scathing, ironic tale whose fictional couple parallels the real-life relationship of Fitzgerald and his wife, from its romantic beginnings to its tragic end. It remains to this day a devastating portrait of insatiable greed, ruthless ambition, and wasted talent.
