Scott Fitzgerald's short fiction, this collection spans his career, from the early stories of the glittering "Jazz Age", through the lost hopes of the thirties, to the last, twilight decade of his life. It brings together his most famous stories, including "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz", a fairy tale of unlimited wealth; the sad and hilarious stories of Hollywood hack "Pat Hobby"; and "The Lost Decade", written in Fitzgerald's last years.

F Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) left Princeton University in 1917 to join the army. He is said to have epitomized the Jazz Age, which he himself defined as 'a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken'. In 1920 he entered a traumatic marriage which was to influence much of his writing.
