F. Scott Fitzgerald: A Life in Letters
One volume collection of correspondence, chronologically arranged beginning in 1907 with a childhood letter to his father, Edward Fitzgerald, and ending in 1940 with a letter to his daughter, Scottie. Includes correspondence with his editor, Maxwell Perkins, wife Zelda Sayre, and friends such as Hemingway, Edmund Wilson, and Sara and Gerald Murphy. Early letters make frequent reference to the young Hemingway’s authorial promise and their growing friendship, while later correspondence captures Fitzgerald’s response to Hemingway’s disparaging comments on him in “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” and deteriorating relationship. Features a brief biography, chronology, footnotes, and facsimiles of several original letters. References to Hemingway throughout.
