9780140030037: Zelda Fitzgerald

Acclaimedbiographer Nancy Milford brings to life the tormented, elusive personality ofZelda Sayre and clarifies as never before her relationship with F. ScottFitzgerald, tracing the inner disintegration of a gifted, despairing womanundone by the clash between her husband’s career and her own talent. Zelda was an instant touchstone forcreatively inspired readers after its initial publication in 1983; Patti Smithhails it in her autobiography, Just Kids,recalling how “reading the story of Zelda Fitzgerald by Nancy Milford, Iidentified with her mutinous spirit.” Now, the penetrating biography of one oftwentieth century literature’s most misunderstood figures—a book the New York Times calls “profound,overwhelmingly moving . . . [and] a richly complex love story” is availableagain in a handsome paperback edition from Harper Perennial.

From the Back Cover:

Zelda Sayre began as a Southern beauty, became an international wonder, and died by fire in a madhouse. With her husband, F. Scott Fitzgerald, she moved in a golden aura of excitement, romance, and promise. The epitome of the Jazz Age, together they rode the crest of the era: to its collapse and their own.

From years of exhaustive research, Nancy Milford brings alive the tormented, elusive personality of Zelda and clarifies as never before her relationship with` Scott Fitzgerald. Zelda traces the inner disintegration of a gifted, despairing woman, torn by the clash between her husband's career and her own talent.
