Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Beautiful and Damned is the story of Anthony Patch and his wife, Gloria. Harvard-educated and an aspiring aesthete, Patch is waiting for his inheritance upon his grandfather's death. His reckless marriage to Gloria is fueled by alcohol and is destroyed by greed. The Patches race through a series of alcohol-induced fiascoes — first in hilarity, and then in despair. The Beautiful and Damned, a devastating portrait of the nouveaux riches, New York night life, reckless ambition, and squandered talent, was published in 1922 on the heels of Fitzgerald's first novel. It signaled his maturity as a storyteller and, more important, as a novelist.

Synopsis:

Introducing a fresh, practical approach to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s enduring classic—ideal for students and general readers.

Simon & Schuster Enriched Classics are designed to enable readers to enjoy, appreciate, and understand great works of literature to their fullest potential.

     Anthony Patch, Harvard-educated, aspiring aesthete, falls in love and marries Gloria Gilbert, a stunning, beautiful woman. On the outside they look like the golden couple—rich, beautiful, young, and in love. However, beneath the surface, the marriage is not at all what it seems. Anthony and Gloria must wait to inherit Anthony's grandfather’s fortune. And wait they do, while drinking, and jetsetting to Europe and back to the states. The Beautiful and the Damned is a timeless story about society, money, and the deterioration of a marriage.

About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896, attended Princeton University, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. That same year he married Zelda Sayre, and the couple divided their time between New York, Paris, and the Riviera, becoming a part of the American expatriate circle that included Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, and John Dos Passos. Fitzgerald was a major new literary voice, and his masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. He died of a heart attack in 1940 at the age of forty-four, while working on The Love of the Last Tycoon. For his sharp social insight and breathtaking lyricism, Fitzgerald stands as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.
