This Side of Paradise

F. Scott Fitzgerald
Edited by Jackson R. Bryer Bryer

Oxford World's Classics

  • Jackson R. Bryer's introduction establishes the novel as an important work in its own right, and analyses its enduring strengths for the modern reader; it considers the book's interesting composition history and its initial reception in 1920.

  • Chronology of the life of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
  • Explanatory notes provide context for references and allusions.
