9781853260971: Tender Is the Night (Wordsworth Classics)

Tender is the Night is a story set in the hedonistic high society of Europe during the "Roaring Twenties". A wealthy schizophrenic, Nicole Warren, falls in love with Dick Diver - her psychiatrist. The resulting saga of the Diver's troubled marriage and their circle of friends, includes a cast of aristocratic and beautiful people, unhappy love affairs, a duel, incest, and the problems inherent in the possession of great wealth. Despite cataloguing a maelstrom of interpersonal conflict, Tender is the Night has a poignancy and warmth which springs from the quality of F. Scott Fitzgerald's writing and the tragic personal experiences on which the book is based. This edition is being superceded by ISBN 9781840226638 Tender is the Night / The Last Tycoon

Review:

'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-Wood

Book Description:

A heartbreaking American masterpiece of the 'Roaring Twenties' by the author of The Great Gatsby
