Introduction by Hortense Calisher

Commentary by Edmund Wilson, Henry Seidel Canby, and Arthur Mizener

 

Fitzgerald’s second novel, a devastating portrait of the excesses of the Jazz Age, is a largely autobiographical depiction of a glamorous, reckless Manhattan couple and their spectacular spiral into tragedy. Published on the heels of This Side of Paradise, the story of the Harvard-educated aesthete Anthony Patch and his willful wife, Gloria, is propelled by Fitzgerald’s intense romantic imagination and demonstrates an increased technical and emotional maturity. The Beautiful and Damned is at once a gripping morality tale, a rueful meditation on love, marriage, and money, and an acute social document. As Hortense Calisher observes in her Introduction, “Though Fitzgerald can entrance with stories so joyfully youthful they appear to be safe—when he cuts himself, you will bleed.”

Patrick Fontaine, January 2, 2011 (view all comments by Patrick Fontaine)
Fitzgerald's darker more personal novel about alcoholism and excess. Almost a rock'n roll star's lifestyle in 1920s New York, the intense drama of this book blows The Great Gatsby out of the water. Highly reccomended book from America's greatest writer.
