Fitzgerald, F. Scott: Babylon Revisited. v1. 03 Jan 09
A famous short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
One critic writes:
"In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s "Babylon Revisited," the protagonist Charlie Wales has come to Paris to try to get custody of his daughter Honoria from his late wife's sister Marion, to whom the child was entrusted after Charlie fell apart several years before. In order to get Honoria back, he needs to present a facade of being much more stable than he really is; but he is fully aware of the split between the fantasy he has created and the reality he lives."
This story was filmed as The Last Time I Saw Paris.
Here's a famous quote from the story:
"Family quarrels are bitter things. They don't go according to any rules. They're not like aches or wounds; they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material."
You won't find any shortage of information on the internet regarding this story.
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.
