Description

BERNICE BOBS HER HAIR: When boring Bernice visits her extended family, her glamorous cousin Marjorie desides to make her over, if only to keep her from being a drag on her social life. The transformation is successful and Bernice becomes popular with all the local boys, including Marjorie's beau, Warren. And Marjorie isn't going to stand for that.

"Bernice Bob Her Hair," holds an important place in Fitzgerald work as an early examination of theme of competition for social success: especially among young women.




About the Author

He married his wife, Zelda, in 1920, a week after his first novel, This Side of Paradise, was published. His works, considered by many to be classics, include The Great Gatsby, Tender is the Night, and the uncompleted The Last Tycoon. He died of a heart attack at the age of 44.
