F. Scott Fitzgerald died in 1940 before he finished this novel. This text purges the printers' errors and editorial interventions that have appeared in previous editions. The tragic centre of the book is film producer Monroe Stahr, who sees film as art, rather than a money-making device.

Scott Donaldson

"Chicago Tribune Books"

No other Fitzgerald-related work [Bruccoli] has done is likely to be as important as his critical editions of the major works. "The Love of the Last Tycoon" carries the authority of a great writer working very close to the top of his form.

David Freeman

"The Los Angeles Times"

Bruccoli's introduction and account of the composition of the novel are sensitive and nuanced, the result of a lifetime of Fitzgerald study. The book has marvelous set pieces, vivid cinematic images, and sustained invention...a few of the reasons the book endures.
