About the Author


  • F Scott Fitzgerald

    F Scott Fitzgerald was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota on September 24, 1896 and died at the age of 44 on December 21, 1940. He was an American novelist, essayist, short story writer and screenwriter, best known for his novels depicting the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age — a term he popularized. During his lifetime, he published four novels, four story collections, and 164 short stories. Although he achieved temporary popular success and fortune in the 1920s, Fitzgerald received critical acclaim only after his death and is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
