About F. Scott Fitzgerald

F Scott Fitzgerald is one of the most celebrated authors in American literature. A prolific novelist, short story writer, and screenwriter, Fitzgerald is best known for his novel The Great Gatsby. His works are lauded for their romanticism and intricate poetic prose.

The life of F Scott Fitzgerald was as dramatic and extraordinary as his writing.

After the war, he moved to New York City where he wrote short stories as a freelancer while living a wild lifestyle funded by loans from friends and family. He finally achieved success with the publication of This Side of Paradise in 1920; however success did not last long, and his later years were characterized by financial hardship and alcoholism.
