Description
First published in 1920, "Flappers and Philosophers" marked F. Scott Fitzgerald's entry into the realm of the short story, in which he adroitly proved himself "a master of the mechanism of short story technique" "(Boston Transcript)." Several of his most beloved tales are represented in this collection of eight, including "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" and "Head and Shoulders," with their particularly O. Henry-like twists; the poignant "Benediction" and "The Cut-Glass Bowl"; and "The Offshore Pirate," the octet's opening and most romantic story. It is a collection of masterful short works from an American literary icon that led "The New York Times Book Review" to note that " no one] can fail to recognize Mr. Fitzgerald's talent and genius."
Pocket Books' Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. Special features include critical perspectives, suggestions for further reading, and a unique visual essay composed of period photographs that help bring every word to life.



About the Author
F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896 1941) was one of the literary titans of the 20th century. A member of the Lost Generation of the 1920s, Fitzgerald s writings best captured what he termed The Jazz Age, a period of declining traditional American values, prohibition and speakeasies, and great leaps in modernist trends.
