This Side of Paradise
Kessinger Publishing, Feb 1, 2011 - 286 pages
(LARGE PRINT EDITION) 1920. Fitzgerald is considered one of the most gifted serious writers of his generation. He became known for his novels and stories of the 1920s; he called it the Jazz Age and described it as a new generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken. This Side of Paradise is a description of life at Princeton among the glittering, bored, and disillusioned post-World War I lost generation, and is the novel that rocketed Fitzgerald to stardom.
