Flappers and Philosophers

F. Scott Fitzgerald and Kirk Curnutt

Oxford World's Classics

  • 2020 marks the centenary of the publication of F. Scott's Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise
  • Fitzgerald's importance as the definer of his times, whether as the chronicler of the Jazz Age or the finest writer of the American Depression, continues into the twenty-first century, and his enduring popularity across all reading constituencies remains the case almost eight decades after his death
  • This story collection provides a unique set of insights into Fitzgerald's parallel interests at particular points in his career
  • If a century on from his first publications we want to understand better Fitzgerald's first forays into fiction and the publishing world, we need to read the stories in Flappers and Philosophers
