Fitzgerald, F. Scott: A Nice Quiet Place. v1. 03 Jan 09

F. Scott Fitzgerald and the genius of literary creation.

Some background on the Basil and Josephine series, quoted:

"In 1928, while struggling with his novel Tender Is the Night, Fitzgerald began writing a series of stories about Basil Duke Lee, a fictionalized version of his younger self. Drawing on his childhood and adolescent experiences, Fitzgerald wrote nine tales that were published in the Saturday Evening Post about his life from the time he was an eleven-year-old boy living in Buffalo, New York, until he entered Princeton University in 1913. Then from 1930 to 1931, with Tender Is the Night still unfinished, Fitzgerald wrote five more stories (also published in the Post) that centered around Josephine Perry, Basil's female counterpart. Although Fitzgerald intended to combine the fourteen Basil Lee and Josephine Perry stories into a single work, he never succeeded in doing so in his lifetime. Here, The Basil and Josephine Stories brings together in one volume the complete set, resulting in one of Fitzgerald's most charming and evocative works."

For those wanting more information on the series, here's the breakdown:

I. Basil
--That Kind of Party, 1951. (Princeton University Library Chronicle, Summer, 1951.)
--The Scandal Detectives, 1928. (The Saturday Evening Post, April 28, 1928.)

--The Freshest Boy, 1929. (The Saturday Evening Post, 1929.)
--He Thinks He's Wonderful, 1929. (The Saturday Evening Post, 1929.)
--The Captured Shadow, 1929. (The Saturday Evening Post, 1929.)
--The Perfect Life, 1929. (The Saturday Evening Post, 1929.)
--Forging Ahead, 1929. (The Saturday Evening Post, 1929.)
--Basil and Cleopatra, 1929. (The Saturday Evening Post, April 27, 1929.)

II. Josephine
--First Blood, 1930. (The Saturday Evening Post, April 5, 1930.)
--A Nice Quiet Place, 1931. (The Saturday Evening Post, 1931.)
--A Woman with a Past, 1931. (The Saturday Evening Post, 1931.)

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

I hope you enjoy it.
