Book Description:

Fitzgerald's second collection of short stories, Tales of the Jazz Age (1922), includes at least two masterpieces --'May Day' and 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz'. Tales of the Jazz Age and Other Stories reproduces Tales of the Jazz Age in full, along with several uncollected stories from the early 1920s, including 'Dice, Brassknuckles and Guitar', which closely anticipates the themes and characters of The Great Gatsby. James L. W. West III traces the textual history of the stories, and provides detailed historical notes, references and glosses.

His short stories and novels are set in the American `Jazz Age' of the Roaring Twenties and include This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, Tender Is the Night, The Great Gatsby, The Last Tycoon, and Tales of the Jazz Age.

From Collins Classics, short stories from the author of `The Great Gatsby and including `The Curious Case of Benjamin Button .In these eleven stories, Fitzgerald depicts the Roaring Twenties as he lived them. He masterfully blends accounts of flappers and the smart set with more fantastical visions of America, always imbuing his narratives with his trademark themes of money, class, ambition and love. In `May Day , Fitzgerald weaves an account of a raucous Yale alumni party, the participants of which are oblivious to the violent socialist demonstration being acted out around them. `The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is an unorthodox account of a man who ages backwards, and `The Diamond as Big as the Ritz tells the story of a young man who discovers that his friend s family possesses a diamond that is literally larger than the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. This 1922 collection confirmed Fitzgerald as the voice of his generation. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780007925506
