Winter dreams F. Scott Fitzgerald ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
F. Scott Fitzgerald's story is the classic tale of a boy from the provinces whose talents bring him fame and fortune-temporarily.

Fitzgerald's life has long held a fascination not precisely tied to his literary standing; now, as in his lifetime, he appears as both a serious writer and a notable American figure identified with his fiction. For it is to fiction--filled with the myths of youth, beauty, and destroying time, of searching and striving, of conflict between forces of good and evil--that Fitzgerald has made his own distinguished contribution
