Résumé :

"F. Scott Fitzgerald was a handsome, ambitious sophomore at Princeton when he fell in love for the first time. Ginevra King, though only sixteen, was beautiful, socially poised, and blessed with the confidence that considerable wealth can bring. Their romance began instantly, flourished in heartfelt letters, and quickly ran its course - but Scott never forgot it. Now, for the first time, scholar and biographer James L. W. West III tells the story of the youthful passion that shaped Scott Fitzgerald's life as a writer.".

"Though he fell in love with Zelda Sayres soon after learning of Ginevra's engagement to a well-to-do midwesterner, Scott drew on memories of Ginevra for his most unforgettable female characters - Isabelle Borge and Rosalind Connage in This Side of Paradise, Judy Jones in "Winter Dreams," and above all Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby. Transformed by Scott's art, Ginevra became a new American heroine who inspired an entire generation." "For Scott and Ginevra, "the perfect hour" was private code for a fleeting time they almost shared and then yearned after for the rest of their lives."--BOOK JACKET.
