More Information
F Scott Fitzgerald was born on September 24 1896 and is regarded not only as one of America's greatest novelists but the supreme chronicler of the 1920's Jazz Age. He had a comfortable, though not wealthy, upbringing though he lived somewhat in a fantasy and was ashamed of his family's lack of wealth and standing. He went to Princeton but failed to graduate, spending too much time writing, eventually being forced to leave and take a commission in the army. He later met his wife to be Zelda, a beautiful, daring and vivacious woman whom he fell helplessly in love with, whilst she reciprocated his feelings she refused to marry him due to his financial situation. This fuelled a desperate bid to get work published though with little success until the acceptance of his first novel. Their subsequent lavish lifestyle and over indulgence became the talk of the town. The lifestyle took its toll, personally, physically and financially, they were living constantly beyond their means and to make matters worse Zelda started to have mental problems, eventually being hospitalised. Fitzgerald died from a heart attack in 1940.
