THE LAST TYCOON: Including Fitzgerald's Notes for The Last Tycoon - The Original 1941 Edition
The Love of The Last Tycoon is an unfinished novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, compiled and published posthumously. The notes for the novel were initially collected and edited by the literary critic Edmund Wilson, who was a close friend of Fitzgerald, and the unfinished novel was published in 1941 as The Last Tycoon, though there is now critical agreement that Fitzgerald intended The Love of the Last Tycoon to be the book's title. Inspired by the life of film producer Irving Thalberg, on whom protagonist Monroe Stahr is based, the story follows Stahr's rise to power in Hollywood, and his conflicts with rival Pat Brady, a character based on studio head Louis B. Mayer. Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896 – 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
