Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda Sayre has been celebrated as one of the greatest of the 20th century. Despite their love, both Scott and Zelda engaged in flirtations that threatened to tear the couple apart. But none had a more profound impact on the two--and on Scott\'s writing--as the liaison between Zelda and French aviator Edouard Jozan. Though other biographers have written of Jozan as one of Scott\'s romantic rivals, accounts of the pilot\'s effect on the couple have been superficial at best. Drawing on conversations and correspondence with Jozan\'s daughter, as well as materials from the Jozan family archives, Taylor sheds new light on this romantic triangle. More than just a casual fling, Zelda\'s tryst with Edouard affected Scott as much as it did his wife--and ultimately shaped the author\'s most famous creation, Jay Gatsby. Both a literary study and a probing look at an iconic couple\'s psychological makeup, The Gatsby Affair offers readers a bold interpretation of how one of America\'s greatest novels was profoundly influenced.\"--Dust jacket.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Explores Zelda Fitzgerald\'s affair with French aviator Edouard Jozan, the man on whom F.
