"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.
