Reader's Companion to F. Scott Fitzgerald's

Matthew J. Bruccoli
with Judith S. Baughman

Solves the mysteries surrounding a much maligned masterpiece


Tender Is the Night, the novel F. Scott Fitzgerald worked longest and hardest on, has not achieved its proper recognition because the text is peppered with errors and chronological inconsistencies. Moreover, the novel has a concentration of references to people, places, and events that most readers no longer recognize. In this guide to the novel, Matthew J. Bruccoli corrects those errors and explains the factual details. He also offers maps, photos, correspondence, and notes that demystify the writing of one of literature's most misunderstood -- and underrated -- masterpieces.

The leading authority on F. Scott Fitzgerald, Matthew J. Bruccoli is the author of the standard biography of Fitzgerald.
