Dice, Brassknuckles & Guitar Synopsis

"Dice, Brassknuckles & Guitar" is a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It was published in Hearst's International Cosmopolitan in May 1923.

Jim Powell was on his way to New Jersey with his servant, and in the middle of the journey, his car broke down. Jim borrowed a tool to fix his car from an old Victorian House in the area, and he encountered a young woman at the house, Amanthis Powell. When they were talking, Amanthis told Jim that she did not feel like she could be a New York society girl, and Jim responded with a promise that she could make her a New York society girl.

Excerpt from Dice, Brassknuckles & Guitar Online Book

Parts of New Jersey, as you know, are under water, and other parts are under continual surveillance by the authorities. But here and there lie patches of garden country dotted with old-fashioned frame mansions, which have wide shady porches and a red swing on the lawn. And perhaps, on the widest and shadiest of the porches there is even a hammock left over from the hammock days, stirring gently in a mid-Victorian wind.

About F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St Paul, Minnesota, in 1896. He studied at Princeton University for three years but left without a degree. He is one of the most influential American authors of all time. Fitzgerald wrote stories that explored wealth, success, romance, and failure. His work from the 1920s established him as a critical figure in the 'Jazz Age,' a period when Americans embraced new forms of art and culture. His best-known novel is The Great Gatsby (1925). Many hailed it as one of America's most significant works of literature for its powerful characters and commentary on society at that time. Find out more about F. Scott Fitzgerald at sevenov.com.
