Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This edition of This Side of Paradise presents at last an accurate text based on Fitzgerald's original manuscript.

The story of Amory Blaine's moral education and sexual awakening as he journeys from prep school to Princeton to adulthood, it brilliantly captures the rhythms of postwar America and the spirit of a generation dedicated to the pursuit of excitement, sophistication, and success.

Originally published in 1920, This Side of Paradise made Fitzgerald famous for the stylish exuberance of his writing — and infamous for the spelling, grammar, and chronology errors that peppered his text. Meticulously restored with explanatory notes on topical and historical references and a detailed account of the novel's creative and textual history, this volume will be welcomed by long-time fans, as well as those discovering Fitzgerald's magical prose for the very first time.
