F. Scott Fitzgerald Resources
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896-1940) led a life as colorful as one of his Jazz Age novels. Although he wrote only four complete novels and short stories, he is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. He is best known for The Great Gatsby, a classic American tale of disillusionment with modernity.
