F. Scott Fitzgerald published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. His masterpieces include The Beautiful and the Damned and Tender is the Night. He died at the age of fourty-four. After his death, the New York Times said that Fitzgerald "was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a generation."
'Reading it now for the seventh or eighth time, I am more convinced than ever not merely that it is Fitzgerald's masterwork but that it is the American masterwork, the finest work of fiction by any of this country's writers... If from all of our country's books I could have only one, The Great Gatsby would be it.' - Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post
