The Divers lead an idyllic life on the French Riviera. Their parties are the talk of the town, and everyone is much taken by their grace and sophistication. Their romance, too, is the stuff of fairytale: Dick Diver, a brilliant, charming clinical psychologist, is madly in love with Nicole, the bewitching, wealthy heiress who was once his patient. Behind the glamorous facade, though, trouble brews. Nicole suffers a relapse and Dick takes refuge in alcohol. And, unable to come to terms with Dicks drinking, his infidelities, and Nicoles swift descent into madness, the Divers idyll crumbles. Ambitious, ground-breaking, and perhaps the most autobiographical of all his works, Tender Is the Night proved Fitzgerald to be one of the most accomplished novelists of the Lost Generation. About the Author F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was an American writer born in Minnesota. Some of his well-known works include This Side of Paradise and The Great Gatsby.

"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 Books, NY, 1986. 9" x 6" Stapled Booklet. Condition: Very Good. From the book, "In Scott Fitzgerald, as in every writer of genius, there was something of the seer. He gave a name to an age - the Jazz Age- and lived through that age, and saw it burn itself out. As a New York Times editorial stated after his death: He was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a 'generation'. He might have interpreted them and even guided them, as in their middle years they saw a different and nobler freedom threatened with destruction." Soft cover in very good condition.
