Autobiography, love story, and literary history, this classic memoir is "the very best portrait of F. Scott Fitzgerald that has yet been put into print". So wrote critic Edmund Wilson about this international best seller in 1959. Sheilah Graham paints an intimate yet objective portrait of Fitzgerald -- turning out screenplays in late-1930s Hollywood to pay his debts, frequently drunk and increasingly despondent over his declining literary reputation. Strengthened and encouraged by Graham, Fitzgerald started his last and most ambitious novel, "The Last Tycoon". Graham served as his model for the character Kathleen.
