A novel of the glittering decadence of Hollywood's heyday, this was Fitzgerald's last work and he died without completing it. The novel's tragic tycoon hero is Stahr, and, caught in the crossfire of his own effortless cynicism and his silent, secret vulnerability, he inhabits a world dominated by business, alcohol and promiscuity. If there is a moral or social necessity to film-making in this West Coast never-never land, Stahr does not always believe in it. And if there is love, he does not always see it.

F. Scott Fitzgerald died before he could finish this novel, better known as "The Last Tycoon". Its central character, the great film producer Monroe Stahr, is based on Irving Thalberg and, like Fitzgerald, is a desperately sick man, disenchanted with life, but striving still to work.
