F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-2940) was an American novelist, essayist, and short story writer. Born into a middle-class family in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Fitzgerald was raised primarily in New York state. He attended Princeton University where he befriended future literary critic Edmund Wilson. He is best known for his novels depicting the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age—a term he popularized. During his lifetime, he published four novels, four story collections, and 164 short stories. Although he achieved temporary popular success and fortune in the 1920s, Fitzgerald received critical acclaim only after his death and is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. His novels include THE GREAT GATSBY (1925) and TENDER IS THE NIGHT (1934). After a long struggle with alcoholism, he attained sobriety only to die of a heart attack in 1940, at 44
