Description - The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald

'Here's to alcohol, the rose coloured glasses of life.'

Anthony Patch has told his wealthy grandfather that he is writing a medieval history. But he isn't. Instead he's living a life of lazy decadence in the caf scene of early 1920s New York, oscillating between boredom and recklessness.

When he meets Gloria, he finds a kindred spirit, and the young couple quickly fall in love. But together, they're more destructive than they were apart. Easily bored, they throw money into a glamorous and lavish lifestyle. One they can't sustain. And as they wait on Anthony's delayed inheritance, their heady world spins out of control. Because life is only a party for as long as you can afford it. . .

Author Biography - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Born in 1896, Fitzgerald was considered a member of the 'Lost Generation', along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself - and The Great Gatsby is often considered as 'the great American novel'. Fitzgerald's tempestuous marriage Zelda Fitzgerald inspired all of his novels, none more so that The Beautiful and Damned, a story about a marriage on the brink of collapse.
