Save Me The Waltz

9780140032598: Save Me The Waltz

One of the great literary curios of the 20th century, Save Me the Waltz is the first and only novel by the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. During the years when her husband was working on Tender is the Night—which many critics consider his masterpiece—Zelda Fitzgerald was preparing her own story. The novel strangely parallels evens from her husband’s life, throwing a fascinating light on Scott Fitzgerald and his work. In its own right, it is a vivid and moving story—centered upon the confessional of a famous glamour girl of the affluent 1920s and an aspiring ballerina—that captures the spirit of an era.

About the Author:

Zelda Fitzgerald (1900 - 1948) was an American novelist and the wife of writer F.Scott Fitzgerald. She was an icon of the 1920s. She wrote magazine articles and short stories, and at 27 became obsessed with a career as a ballerina. Zelda was diagnosed with schizophrenia and died in a hospital fire.


"Save Me the Waltz is worth reading partly because anything that illuminates the career of F. Scott Fitzgerald is worth reading-and because it is the only published novel of a brave and talented woman who is remembered for her defeats" -- Matthew Bruccoli * Some Sort of Epic Grandeur: The Life of F. Scott Fitzgerald * "Some of her sentences are so bittersweetly delicious I could eat them" -- Jessica Whiteley * Stylist * "A strangely evocative novel, episodic in structure, painterly in its description, almost hallucinatory in overall effect" * New York Times *
