One of the great American writers whose works enjoy popular appeal as well as critical acclaim, F. Scott Lyric, highly readable novel traces the meteoric rise and fall of glittering young socialites Anthony and Gloria Patch. Building their marriage on the shaky foundation of an expected inheritance, they devote their youth and happiness on hedonistic pursuits that plunge them into moral and financial bankruptcy. Transparently based on the lives of Fitzgerald and his beautiful wife, Zelda, the novel eerily foreshadows the real-life's couple's rapid descent into ruin.
