Fitzgerald, F. Scott: The Rich Boy. v1. 31 Dec 08

F. Scott Fitzgerald - more than just a writer who wrote The Great Gatsby.

From Amazon:

"Anson Hunter is old money – he knows his position, he can afford to condescend. From his lofty position, he dispenses tips and advice to others on finance and romance, but his own empty life is haunted by the memory of lovely Paula Legendre.

"Anson and Paula, Michael and Caroline, Andy and Ailie: their flawed and illusory relationships lie at the centre of this trio of stories. Fitzgerald’s men yearn for beautiful, untouchable women, convincing themselves that only with someone utterly out of reach can they be truly happy.

"Anson clings to a moment of his youth, growing fat and stagnant on his wealth and his emasculating romantic ideal, while time, money and lovers slip away.

"Written at a time when Fitzgerald’s own difficult marriage was starting to deteriorate, these stories stab at the heart of the enduring myth of true love, focusing instead on the destructive scramble for position, and the petty vanities of money and class."


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

I hope you enjoy it.
