Fitzgerald, F. Scott: Tender is the Night. v1. 06 June 07

Fitzgerald is known for the novel, The Great Gatsby, but there's still a number of other titles that are classic Fitzgerald, such as Tender is the Night.

Here's one in the PD, for your enjoyment.

Here's a quote:

"Published in 1934, Tender Is the Night was one of the most talked-about books of the year. "It's amazing how excellent much of it is," Ernest Hemingway said to Maxwell Perkins. "I will say now," John O'Hara wrote Fitzgerald, "Tender Is the Night is in the early stages of being my favorite book, even more than This Side of Paradise." And Archibald MacLeish exclaimed: 'Great God, Scott...You are a fine writer. Believe it -- not me.' Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, Tender Is the Night is the tragic romance of the young actress Rosemary Hoyt and the stylish American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own, and whose growing strength highlights Dick's harrowing demise. A profound study of the romantic concept of character -- lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative -- Tender Is the Night, Mabel Dodge Luhan remarked, raised F. Scott Fitzgerald to the heights of "a modern Orpheus.'"

I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you, Don!

This reminds me of Myra Meets His Family, a short-story by Fitzgerald I had to write a paper on during English Composition It was all about the flapper generation.

Better than gatsby? I'm all over it, then. This is one of those (many) books I've been planning to read for years. Thanks, Dr Drib!

I agree, MUCH better than Gatsby and I consider some of his short stories to be even better than this.

I also have his wife's answer to this book, "Save me the Waltz" from Zelda Fitzgerald.
