Description

A self-portrait of a great writer. A Short Autobiography charts Fitzgerald's progression from exuberant and cocky with "What I think and Feel at 25", to mature and reflective with "One Hundred False Starts" and "The Death of My Father." Compiled and edited by Professor James West, this revealing collection of personal essays and articles reveals the beloved author in his own words.




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.

JAMES L.W. WEST III is Sparks Professor of English at Pennsylvania State University. He has held fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Humanities Center, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and has been a Fulbright scholar to England and Belgium. He is the author of "William Styron: A Life" and is general editor of the Cambridge Edition of the Works of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
