Promotional Information

A mesmerising and lavish story of Hollywood's Golden Age from the author of The Great Gatsby.

About the Author

Born in 1896, Fitzgerald was considered a member of the 'Lost Generation', along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself - and THE GREAT GATSBY is often considered to be 'the great American novel'. In 1937, Fitzgerald moved to Hollywood to try and write himself out of debt - while there he worked on now-forgotten movies such as A Yank at Oxford. It is this insider knowledge that Fitzgerald brings to his final novel THE LAST TYCOON.

Reviews

It would have been Fitzgerald's best novel . . . Even in this truncated form it not only makes absorbing reading; it is the best piece of creative writing that we have about one phase of American life - Hollywood and the movies * New York Times *
Wonderful . . . a novel about Hollywood, written from the inside * Sunday Times *
His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly's wings * Ernest Hemingway *
