    F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 13 Preposterous Ideas for Your Leftover Turkey. :)

  • Teri Stone

    In 1936 Fitzgerald wrote a series of confessional articles for Esquire. Collectively called, "The Crack-Up stories." They describe his "emotional bankruptcy" and explored his feelings of failure. Fitzgerald's friends reacted strongly to the "Crack-Up" series. Maxwell Perkins, his editor at Scribners and Son, was embarrassed for Fitzgerald. Hemingway denounced the essays as cowardly and shameful. John Dos Passos thought the series were an abuse of Fitzgerald's talent through "spilling it in little pieces" All this time, his once immense income dropped considerably, his short stories (his bread and butter) did not command his 1920's price tag. And to make matters worse, he was keeping Zelda in expensive sanitariums, and providing for his daughter Scottie's private education. By his 40th birthday, he had hit bottom, reaching a point where he pitifully tried to commit suicide by drinking a bottle of morphine. Whoops.

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.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald “That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, born September 24, 1896
