Fitzgerald, F. Scott: A Night At The Fair. v1. 01 Jan 09

This F. Scott Fitzgerald story originally appeared in The Saturday Evening Post (1928), and is part of the Basil and Josephine stories.

It was later collected in that titled edition, edited by Jackson R. Bryer and John Kuehl.

From the Series of Dreams website:

"In 1928, struggling with the writing of his fourth novel Tender Is The Night, Minnesota native F. Scott Fitzgerald decided to reach back into his St. Paul childhood for inspiration. Over the next two years Scott wrote seven short stories about young protagonist Basil Duke Lee and his youthful escapades on the streets of the Summit Hill neighborhood where the author grew up. One of the early stories was A Night At The Fair, whose opening paragraph is above.

"The...story deals with Basilís dilemma over having to wear short pants to the fair, while all of his buddies have graduated to long pants..."


Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.

I hope you enjoy it.
