F Scott Fitzgerald: The Beautiful and Damned

F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Beautiful and Damned transforms the now-familiar stories about his and Zelda’s marriage – the scandalous public behaviour, the nights of drunken revelry and days darkened by the ever-present shadow of insurmountable debt – into a captivating work of fiction.

Geoff Dyer introduces this classic American novel, depicting life amid the glitter of Jazz Age New York.
