The Fitzgeralds in Print

Last week I spent time discussing the Fitzgeralds, Zelda and Scott, but I wanted to get a quick understanding of the books both by them and about them. So I’m sharing my findings with you for your reading pleasure – and please feel free to tell me if there are any you love or know of that I missed! I’m focusing mostly on books and collections, and not individual stories or the list would be exceptionally long since they both wrote from publications.

  1. Oooh, great list -- I'm mad for the Fitzgeralds so I'll be coming back to this (someday) to read through (someday)!

    1. I hope you have the chance to! I'm just hoping to get to Beautiful and Damned, which has been on my list forever (and on my shelf for the last few years).

  2. There's also The Crack-Up, which is a collection of F. Scott's essays.
