Fool for Love
F. Scott Fitzgerald229Tillfälligt slut – klicka "Bevaka" för att få ett mejl så fort boken går att köpa igen.Fool for Love is Scott Donaldson's masterful biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald-written from a fresh and highly intimate perspective. Fool for Love follows Fitzgerald from his birthplace in St. Paul, Minnesota, to Princeton and upward into the highest reaches of literary and public success-and ultimately to Fitzgerald's untimely death in Hollywood at the age of forty-four, broke and nearly forgotten. This engrossing, definitive study explores two classic Fitzgerald themes throughout-love and class-and the result is a striking portrayal of one of the twentieth century's greatest writers, whose legacy and influence only continue to grow.
