About the Author

James L. W. West III is Sparks Professor of English at Pennsylvania State University.


'As usual, West's introduction is excellent in both its precision and economy.' The F. Scott Fitzgerald Review
"...by giving his work a scholarly imprimatur and by establishing an apparatus to rival those in standard editions of Hawthorne, Conrad, and Faulkner, Cambridge has made it much easier to take Fitzgerald seriously....Spires and Gargoyles offers the first widespread oppurtunity for the non-scholarly reader to discover who Fitzgerald was before her became F. Scott Fitzgerald...West's introduction is excellent in both iits precision and economy. It lays out the facts of Fitzgerald's apprenticeship, noting his proficiency in the various genres represented here, and it provides a reliable list of original publication appearances." - Kirk Curnutt, The F. Scott Fitzgerald Review
