David A. Rennie

  • Offers new readings of works by major authors, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night and Ernest Hemingway's The Torrents of Spring and A Moveable Feast
  • By focusing on authors as individuals, this study offers a significant departure from the trend of demarcating socio-political identity groups which experienced the war
  • Discusses a large quantity of under studied or ignored material including Ellen La Motte's post-war stories, Mary Borden's novels outside The Forbidden Zone, and Thomas Boyd's Points of Honor and In Time of Peace, Fitzgerald's The Vegetable, and Laurence Stallings's short stories and The Doughboys
