Excerpt from Between Three and Four Online Book
At the present time no one I know has the slightest desire to hit Samuel Meredith; possibly this is because a man over fifty is liable to be rather severely cracked at the impact of a hostile fist, but, for my part, I am inclined to think that all his hitable qualities have quite vanished. But it is certain that at various times in his life hitable qualities were in his face, as surely as kissable qualities have ever lurked in a girl's lips.
About F. Scott Fitzgerald
Francis Scott Fitzgerald was born in 1896 in St. Paul, Minnesota, to an Irish descent father and mother. He married Zelda Sayre in 1920, and their marriage became the subject of much speculation and gossip during the Jazz Age, a time of extravagance and glamour that Fitzgerald documented so well in his novels and short stories. His works, such as This Side of Paradise, and The Beautiful and Damned, were popular during this period. Later, he wrote Tender is the Night, featuring a character inspired by Zelda herself.
