I'd Die for You: And Other Lost Stories
|Author:||F. Scott Fitzgerald|
I'd Die for You is a collection of the last remaining unpublished short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the iconic author of The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night. It comprises sixteen finished stories and one partial short fiction, which provides an intimate look at his creative process and shows the promise in a surviving draft. Some were submitted to major magazines and accepted for publication, but the vagaries of magazine life meant they ultimately did not appear in print. Others did not fit with the public perception of Fitzgerald's style in the 1930s. These dazzling uncut gems, the very last of his completed fictions as yet unpublished, demonstrate Fitzgerald's precision and imaginative power as a writer at the forefront of modern literature, and offer a fascinating insight into his artistry.
F. Scott Fitzgerald stands out as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. His masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night. He was born in St Paul, Minnesota in 1896, attended Princeton University, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. He and his wife Zelda divided their time between New York, Paris and the French Riviera, as part of the circle that included Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos. He died in 1940, while working on The Love of the Last Tycoon, which has inspired a new drama series in development, The Last Tycoon.
