Fitzgerald, F. Scott: The Diamond As Big As The Ritz. v1. 02 Jan 09

This famous story by F. Scott Fitzgerald was not very well received upon its original publication in 1922. It is now considereed one Fitzgerald's masterpieces, touching upon issues that occupied him in his novels.

Answers.com writes,

"In hindsight, the story seems to occupy a more favorable light. First of all, attacking materialism, the American way of life, was unlikely to draw favorable reactions just a few short years after World War I. In addition, when seen in the context of Fitzgerald's entire career, "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz" stands out as a turning point in the development of a more mature style. James Miller, in his book F. Scott Fitzgerald: His Art and his Technique, explains: "‘May Day’ and ‘The Diamond as Big as the Ritz’ mark important steps in the development of Fitzgerald's fictional technique he was using experimental techniques, and these experiments were to prove valuable to him in his longer works."

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

I hope you enjoy it. This was my very first story I read by Fitzgerald.
