Excerpt from Design In Plaster Online Book
"How long does the doctor think now?" Mary asked. With his good arm Martin threw back the top of the sheet, disclosing that the plaster armor had been cut away in front in the form of a square, so that his abdomen and the lower part of his diaphragm bulged a little from the aperture. His dislocated arm was still high over his head in an involuntary salute.

Fitzgerald dropped out of college to join the Army during World War I but never saw combat because the armistice was signed before deployment. After leaving the Army, Fitzgerald moved to New York City, where he worked as a copywriter while continuing to write fiction in his spare time. His first novel, "This Side of Paradise," was published in 1920 and became an instant success, making him famous at 24.
