'A tragedy backlist by beauty.' - Daily Express 'For Fitzgerald desolation is a precondition of the lyrical. Hence the most distinctive impression of Tender: A beautiful novel about failure.'- Independent 'It is one of those books that you read and feel a shift... the story is told so poetically and eloquently. It is one of those books that you read and think: if I could only remember that sentence -- it is so beautiful.' --Sam Taylor-WoodBook Description:
A heartbreaking American masterpiece of the 'Roaring Twenties' by the author of The Great Gatsby

Book Description Penguin, Harmondsworth, UK. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. Ohne Schutzumschlag. F. Scott Fitzgerald - Tender is the night 392 S. Taschenbuch Penguin Popular Classics neu . In a Swiss sanatorium, a brilliant psychiatrist encounters a rich patient whose problems exert a seductive fascination. After their marriage, they live on the French Riviera. There, set against the sun-baked stone houses and the drama of the sea, Dick and Nicole Diver's glamour and wealth suggest a fabled existence - the charmed lives of the seriously and breathtakingly frivolous. But as with all confidence tricks, luck can turn out. It is to the theme of money, its coruption and destructive power, that F. Scott Fitzgerald returns in this, his most tantalizing and ambitious novel. The story of Dick and Nicole's disintegrating marriage and spoilt promise reflects Fitzgerald's own dive into drink and despair - and of course, the insanity that so cruelly dogged his wife Zelda.
