About The Book

“Because desire just cheats on you.” She is a reveler. He is a socialite. They are young, haughty, and selfish. And they do not understand the idea of working. Meet Gloria Gilbert, the beautiful, narcissistic dancer, and Anthony Patch, the prospective heir to his grandfather’s fortune. Stunned by Gloria’s beauty, Anthony is desperately in love with her; and soon she becomes his wife. But as the passionate and glamorous couple await the inheritance, indulging in the luxurious and thrilling lifestyle of New York, they are chafed under financial pressures. What happens as their marriage begins to fail in the face of reality? With characters representing the extravagance of the upper echelons and the intrinsic conflicts of a changing social environment, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Beautiful and Damned probes into the café society of New York, exploring the ideas of money and decadence. This Jazz Age novel is considered a masterpiece and continues to remain a bestseller.

About The Author

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century, was born on September 24, 1896, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, to an upper-middle-class Irish Catholic family. A renowned American author of novels and short stories, Fitzgerald’s first piece of writing—a detective story published in the school newspaper—appeared in print in 1909, at the age of thirteen. His works form the epitome of writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined himself. He is considered a member of the ‘Lost Generation’ of the 1920s. He finished four novels, This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby—his most famous—and Tender Is the Night, in his lifetime. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published posthumously. Fitzgerald also wrote many short stories on themes of youth and promise along with despair and age.
