9780140082364: Save ME the Waltz (Penguin Modern Classics)

'Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.'

One of the great literary curios of the twentieth century Save Me the Waltz is the first and only novel by the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. During the years when Fitzgerald was working on Tender is the Night, Zelda Fitzgerald was preparing her own story, which strangely parallels the narrative of her husband, throwing a fascinating light on Scott Fitzgerald's life and work. In its own right, it is a vivid and moving story: the confessional of a famous glamour girl of the affluent 1920s and an aspiring ballerina which captures the spirit of an era.

Review:

" 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)

Book Description:

Zelda Fitzgerald was the 'first American Flapper' and this is her thinly veiled autobiography.
