Fitzgerald, F. Scott: The Pat Hobby Stories. v1. 06 June 07

The Pat Hobby stories go close to home, hence they approximate self-satire by a great writer who lived to see the decline of his political and artistic coinage.

The stories are light and fun to read.

Here's a quote:

"The setting: Hollywood: the character: Pat Hobby, a down-and-out screenwriter trying to break back into show business, but having better luck getting into bars. Written between 1939 and 1940, when F. Scott Fitzgerald was working for Universal Studios, the seventeen Pat Hobby stories were first published in Esquire magazine and present a bitterly humorous portrait of a once-successful writer who becomes a forgotten hack on a Hollywood lot. 'This was not art' Pat Hobby often said, 'this was an industry' where whom 'you sat with at lunch was more important than what you dictated in your office.'"

Hope you enjoy them.
