F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Gatsby Girls

She was an impulsive, fashionable and carefree 1920s woman who embodied the essence of the Gatsby Girl — F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife, Zelda. As Fitzgerald said, “I married the heroine of my stories.” All of the eight short stories contained in this collection were inspired by Zelda.

Fitzgerald, one of the foremost writers of American fiction, found early success as a short story writer for the most widely read magazine of the early 20th century — the Saturday Evening Post. Fitzgerald’s stories, first published by the Post between 1920 and 1922, brought the Jazz Age and the “flapper” to life.

During a moment of great transition in American life, Fitzgerald’s stories confirmed what girls everywhere were beginning to suspect. There was a very big world out there, and there was a party going on where women bobbed their hair and everyone drank and flirted shamelessly.
Fitzgerald’s heroines are brave, charming, resourceful, beautiful and always entertaining.

By the time that The Great Gatsby hit bookstores, F. Scott Fitzgerald was an old friend to readers in America. He had been publishing his stories in the Saturday Evening Post for five years. With a readership of 2,500,000, more people read the Post every week than any other magazine.

A foreword by Jeff Nilsson, archivist for the Post, adds historical context to this wonderful, new collection, which is highlighted by an introduction written by Fitzgerald himself. Each story is accompanied by the original illustrations and the beautiful cover images from the Post. Read the stories that made F. Scott Fitzgerald one of the most beloved writers in America — and around the world — still today.
