Most widely held works by Matthew Joseph Bruccoli
The great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )
17 editions published between 1925 and 2013 in English and held by 2,382 libraries worldwide
Overview: The mysterious Jay Gatsby embodies the American notion that it is possible to redefine oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition. Gatsby's youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated with the display of enormous wealth in which Gatsby revels, finds himself swept up in the lavish lifestyle of Long Island society during the Jazz Age. Considered Fitzgerald's best work, The Great Gatsby is a mystical, timeless story of integrity and cruelty, vision and despair. The timeless story of Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan is widely acknowledged to be the closest thing to the Great American Novel ever written
Some sort of epic grandeur : the life of F. Scott Fitzgerald by Matthew Joseph Bruccoli( Book )
41 editions published between 1981 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,152 libraries worldwide
"This consummately skillful portrait is Scott Fitzgerald to the life. In 1920, the publication of This Side of Paradise, his first novel, thrust him upon America's literary horizon. Twenty years later, physically burned out, fearful he and his work were destined for obscurity, lacking funds and prospects, he died at the age of 44 while working on his fifth novel, The Last Tycoon. Along that meteoric arc flamed three other novels--The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night--plus scores of short stories and other writings. His obituaries, in the main, patronizingly praised his efforts and regretted his ultimate failure. They laid Fitzgerald, literally and literarily, to rest. In the test of time, F. Scott Fitzgerald now shines in the select company of the greatest writers of this age. His work, read by millions, has been translated into thirty-five languages. Published biographical and analytical studies total more than fifty. Success beyond even his most vivid imaginings came to his work. In the test of time, F. Scott Fitzgerald now shines in the select company of the greatest writers of this age. His work, read by millions, has been translated into thirty-five languages. Published biographical and analytical studies total more than fifty. Success beyond even his most vivid imaginings came to his work. His real life exceeds the possibilities of fiction. Early triumph led Fitzgerald to a glamorous, ebullient existence. Adversity, personal excesses, fickle fate, and the literary myopia of his generation reduced him to repeated desperation. Raw courage, then death, saved him from tragedy. Time, too late for the man, endowed him with the longed-for epic grandeur. This lucid, compelling account by Matthew Bruccoli culminates a thirty-year study. Impeccably researched, it reveals Fitzgerald's work and world in stunning detail, the man in touching, humane, fresh perception. Its publication provides at last the definitive biography, the standard life."--Dust jacket

Correspondence of F. Scott Fitzgerald by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )
13 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 1,194 libraries worldwide
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

Catch as catch can : the collected stories and other writings by Joseph Heller( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,124 libraries worldwide
Long before there was a Catch-22, before there was even a Catch-18 (the novel's original title), Joseph Heller had begun sharpening his skills as a writer, searching for the voice that would best express the peculiarly wry view that he held of the world. Starting in 1945, with the publication in Story magazine of the short story "I Don't Love You Anymore," Heller began to reach out to an audience of readers damaged and disillusioned by their experiences during World War II. That story dealt with the return home of an American soldier who was having more than a little trouble adjusting. The stories published following this debut continued to reflect people at odds with the world around them, usually featuring the "little guy," the "underdog," the "average Joe" who beats the odds by surviving in a generally hostile and unwelcoming world. Written in what is termed the "New York Style," his were stories of urban naturalism, realistic and straightforward, emulating the work of such writers as Irwin Shaw, William Saroyan, John O'Hara, and, perhaps most especially, Nelson Algren. For Heller, writing these stories was a part of the learning process, his education on how to get across his own point of view, leading up to the publication of his masterpiece, Catch-22. Of the stories in this collection, thirteen were written before 1961, when Catch-22 was published; of those, five have never before been published. After Catch-22, Heller forsook the short story form. Though five stories were published after 1961, one-"World Full of Great Cities"--Was actually written in 1949; three of the other four are spin-offs of Catch-22, and one is a preview of Closing Time. Rounding out this collection of the complete published short writings of Joseph Heller are a short play and several nonfiction pieces, mostly related to Catch-22
Bits of paradise : 21 uncollected stories by F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )
35 editions published between 1973 and 1995 in English and held by 1,071 libraries worldwide
This volume brings together, for the first time, eleven uncollected stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald and all of Zelda Fitzgerald's short stories. The Fitzgeralds rarely collaborated on the actual writing of stories but, as shown in this collection, they put into their writing the feelings generated by their life together. As their daughter, Scottie Fitzgerald Smith, writes in the foreword, these stories "all have one thing in common: a sense of breathlessness, as if even their authors still were gasping at the wonders glimpsed as they flew past Heaven."
O lost : a story of the buried life by Thomas Wolfe( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,056 libraries worldwide
"The editing of Thomas Wolfe's first novel, originally titled "O Lost," has been the subject of literary argument since its 1929 publication in abridged form as Look Homeward, Angel. This powerful coming-of-age novel tells the rich story of Eugene Gant, a young North Carolina man who longs to escape the confines of his small-town life and his tumultuous family. At the insistence of Maxwell Perkins, the legendary editor at Charles Scribner's Sons, Wolfe cut the typescript by 22 percent. Sixty-six thousand words were omitted for reasons of propriety and publishing economics, as well as to remove material deemed expendable by Perkins. Published for the first time on October 3, 2000 - the centenary of Wolfe's birth - O Lost presents the complete text of the novel's manuscript." "For seventy years Wolfe scholars have speculated about the merits of the unpublished complete work and about the editorial process - particularly the reputed collaboration of Perkins and Wolfe. In order to present this classic novel in its original form as Wolfe wrote it, Arlyn and Matthew J. Bruccoli have established the text from the carbon copy of the typescript and from Wolfe's pencil manuscript. In addition to restoring passages omitted from Look Homeward, Angel, the editors have corrected errors introduced by the typist and other mistakes in the original text and have explicated problematic readings. An introduction and appendices - including textual, bibliographical, and explanatory notes - reconstruct Wolfe's process of creation and place it in the context of the publishing process."--Jacket
