In 1936 F. Scott Fitzgerald was convalescing in a hotel in Asheville, North Carolina, when he gave his nurse a list of 22 books he thought essential. (Here in the nurse’s hand.) He had moved into a hotel that April after transferring Zelda to nearby Highland Hospital. Esquire had just published “The Crack Up' where he said that “my life had been a drawing on resources that I did not possess, that I had been mortgaging myself physically and spiritually up to the hilt.”

"Listen! The world only exists in your eyes – your conception of it. You can make it as big or as small as you want to. And you’re trying to be a little puny individual. By God, if I ever cracked, I’d try to make the world crack with me. Listen! The world only exists through your apprehension of it, and so it’s much better to say that it’s not you that’s cracked – it’s the Grand Canyon.” -- The Crack-Up by F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1936
