Description
When beautiful, reckless Southern belle Zelda Sayre meets F. Scott Fitzgerald at a country club dance in 1918, she is 17 years old and he is a young army lieutenant stationed in Alabama. Before long, the "ungettable" Zelda has fallen for him despite his unsuitability—Scott isn't wealthy or prominent or even a Southerner, and keeps insisting, absurdly, that his writing will bring him fortune and fame. But after Scott sells This Side of Paradise to Scribner's, Zelda optimistically boards a train headed north to marry him and take the rest as it comes. She bobs her hair, adopts daring new fashions, and revels in this wild new world of success and celebrity, where they join the endless party of the glamorous, sometimes doomed Lost Generation that includes Ernest Hemingway, Sara and Gerald Murphy, and Gertrude Stein.

"An utterly engrossing portrayal of Zelda Fitzgerald and the legendary circles in which she moved. In the spirit of Loving Frank and The Paris Wife, Therese Anne Fowler shines a light on Zelda instead of her more famous husband, providing both justice and the voice she struggled to have heard in her lifetime."—Sara Gruen

"Fowler's Zelda is all we would expect and more.... Once she meets the handsome Scott, her life takes off on an arc of indulgence and decadence that still causes us to shake our heads in wonder ... soirées with Picasso and his mistress, with Cole Porter and his wife, with Gerald and Sara Murphy, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Ezra Pound, and Jean Cocteau. Scott's friendship with Hemingway verges on a love affair—at least it's close enough to one to make Zelda jealous. Ultimately, both of these tragic, pathetic and grand characters are torn apart by their inability to love or leave each other. Fowler has given us a lovely, sad and compulsively readable book."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
