Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All the glamour and cynicismof the dawning Jazz Age are on display in F. Scott Fitzgeralds debut story collection.

Flappers and Philosophers was first published in 1920, on the heels of the young authors smash hit novel This Side of Paradise. The collection contains some of his most famous early stories, including “Bernice Bobs Her Hair,” “The Ice Palace,” “Head and Shoulders,” and “The Offshore Pirate.” In these pages we meet many of Fitzgeralds trademark character types: the beautiful and headstrong young women and the dissolute young men of what came to be called the Lost Generation. With their bobbed hair and dangling cigarettes, his characters are sophisticated, witty, and, above all, modern: the spoiled heiress who falls for her kidnapper, the intellectual student whose life is turned upside-down by a chorus girl, the feuding debutantes whose weapons are cutting words and a pair of scissors.

Synopsis:

Flappers and Philosophers was the first collection of short stories written by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
