"...But remember, also, young man: you are not the first person who has ever been alone and alone." -- F. Scott Fitzgerald, August, 1934 / Excerpted from the 1934 Introduction to The Great Gatsby

Pretty cover for this book! I didn't like this at first, but it's really grown on me and it is absolutely the definition of a classic.

"Through all he said, even through his appalling sentimentality, I was reminded of something - an elusive rhythm, a fragment of lost words, that I had heard somewhere a long time ago. For a moment a phrase tried to take shape in my mouth and my lips parted like a dumb man's, as though there was more struggling upon them than a wisp of startled air. But they made no sound, and what I had almost remembered was uncommunicable forever." Nick Carraway

F. Scott Fitzgerald was an author during the Great Despression and Jazz Age. He is considered a member of the "Lost Generation." He completed four novels and one half of a fifth one. His most famous book was called, "The Great Gatsby". He also wrote short stories about different ages and promises and despairs. And he was named after his second cousin, Francis Scott Key.
