Scott Fitzgerald’s TENDER IS THE NIGHT is a glamorous romance set in a dazzling 1920s world of beautiful people living on the French Riviera. The story mirrors Fitzgerald’s own tumultuous marriage to Zelda Fitzgerald.This is the definitive, complete, original version in a stylishly presented edition with ten pictures of life in pre-war Europe. The images put the text in context as well as illustrate the story. It also includes a linked table of contents so you can quickly go to the part you want.SynopsisRichard Diver is a brilliant psychiatrist married to his ex-patient the exquisite and wealthy Nicole. They live on the French Riviera among a glamorous set of wealthy beautiful people. But their tempestuous marriage is beset by jealousy and affairs. Can all Dr Diver’s genius save Nicole and his relationship?F. Scott Fitzgerald Fitzgerald named an age- the Jazz Age, which he defined as ’a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken.’ Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was born in 1896 in St Paul, Minnesota, and studied at Princeton which he left in his senior year (1917) to join the army. At one of his army postings near Montgomery, Massachusetts he met Zelda Sayre. His first novel was ‘This Side of Paradise.’ published in 1920, which made the twenty-four-year-old Fitzgerald famous almost overnight, and a week later he married Zelda in New York. Their tumultuous marriage became an inspiration for much of his work. They were young celebrities of the roaring 20s but Fitzgerald wanted to be a great writer though his reputation as a playboy meant some people didn’t take him seriouslyThe Fitzgeralds went to France in the spring of 1924 to get away from all the hubbub, and he wrote ‘The Great Gatsby’ during the summer and autumn in Valescure near St. Raphael, France.‘Tender is the Night’ received a poor critical reaction when it was published in 1934. Fitzgerald was eventually forced to try to earn a living as a screenwriter.He died in December 1940 in Hollywood while working on ‘The Last Tycoon.’ Since then he has been granted his wish to be considered one of the leading writers of the twentieth century.His novels in chronological order are: ‘This Side of Paradise’, ‘The Beautiful and Damned’, ‘The Great Gatsby’, ‘Tender is the Night’, ‘The Last Tycoon’.Other books by F.

1.5 F. Scott Fitzgerald - Tender is the Night
The same warning signs that told me Frog Music is an abomination appear again. The first sentence is stiff. We spend a whole page setting a scene, but the atmosphere isn’t interesting. I know France is an exotic, exciting place. This cliche was boring the first time I read it. Characters appear, and...

Contrairement aux amants, ils n'avaient pas de passé. Contrairement aux époux, ils n'avaient pas d'avenir.
