RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 4908127 LA English T1 Correspondence of F. Scott Fitzgerald A1 Fitzgerald, F. Scott, Bruccoli, Matthew J., Duggan, Margaret M., Walker, Susan,, PB Random House PP New York YR 1980 SN 0394417739 9780394417738 AB This extensive collection of letters from F. Scott Fitzgerald, and to him from many of his famous contemporaries, often presents both sides of an exchange. None of the contents of the 1963 volume of Fitzgerald letters is included. Extending from Fitzgerald's boyhood to the last days of his life (he died December 21, 1940), these letters provide, in a sense, an intimate biography of the author and a vivid picture of his times. Of special interest are the many he and his wife, Zelda, wrote to each other: those of the difficult courtship during the First World War and the heartbreaking ones during Zelda's prolonged and recurring breakdown in the 1930s. There are letters here from Fitzgerald to Gertrude Stein, Willa Cather, John O'Hara, Ernest Hemingway; to Fitzgerald from Edmund Wilson, H. L. Mencken, Van Wyck Brooks, T. S. Eliot, Robert Penn Warren, Ring Lardner, Sherwood Anderson, Robert Benchley, John Peale Bishop, Gerald and Sara Murphy - and many others to and from well-known literary figures of the twenties, thirties and forties. -- from dust cover.
