The great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

16 editions published between 1925 and 2003 in English and held by 2,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The mysterious Jay Gatsby embodies the American notion that it is possible to redefine oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition. Gatsby's youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated with the display of enormous wealth in which Gatsby revels, finds himself swept up in the lavish lifestyle of Long Island society during the Jazz Age. Considered Fitzgerald's best work, The Great Gatsby is a mystical, timeless story of integrity and cruelty, vision and despair. The timeless story of Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan is widely acknowledged to be the closest thing to the Great American Novel ever written

The love of the last tycoon : a western by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

25 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 1,735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even in its incomplete form, The Love of The Last Tycoon: A Western has achieved a reputation as the best Hollywood novel. When F. Scott Fitzgerald died in 1940 he had written seventeen of thirty projected episodes. In 1941 the "unfinished novel" was published in a text for general readers by Edmund Wilson under the title The Last Tycoon. For more than fifty years that edition, which disguises the state of Fitzgerald's work in progress, has been the only one available. This critical edition of The Love of The Last Tycoon utilizes Fitzgerald's manuscript drafts, revised typescripts, and working notes to establish the first authoritative text of the brilliant work in progress. The volume includes a detailed history of the gestation, composition, and publication of the novel; an explanation of editorial principles; full textual apparatus with editorial notes; facsimiles of the drafts; and explanatory notes on topical allusions and historical references for contemporary readers. The reconstruction of Fitzgerald's intentions for the thirteen unwritten episodes is particularly useful. F. Scott Fitzgerald's incomplete masterpiece is accurately restored to its 1940 state (with editorial emendation of non-functional errors) and thus made fully accessible to a cross-section of readers

Correspondence of F. Scott Fitzgerald by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extensive collection of letters from F. Scott Fitzgerald, and to him from many of his famous contemporaries, often presents both sides of an exchange. None of the contents of the 1963 volume of Fitzgerald letters is included. Extending from Fitzgerald's boyhood to the last days of his life (he died December 21, 1940), these letters provide, in a sense, an intimate biography of the author and a vivid picture of his times. Of special interest are the many he and his wife, Zelda, wrote to each other: those of the difficult courtship during the First World War and the heartbreaking ones during Zelda's prolonged and recurring breakdown in the 1930s. There are letters here from Fitzgerald to Gertrude Stein, Willa Cather, John O'Hara, Ernest Hemingway; to Fitzgerald from Edmund Wilson, H. L. Mencken, Van Wyck Brooks, T. S. Eliot, Robert Penn Warren, Ring Lardner, Sherwood Anderson, Robert Benchley, John Peale Bishop, Gerald and Sara Murphy - and many others to and from well-known literary figures of the twenties, thirties and forties. -- from dust cover

The romantic egoists : [Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald] by Matthew J Bruccoli( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 2003 in English and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a unique way this book gives Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald's own story. The variety is surprising: Fitzgerald's thoughts about his early loves in St. Paul, Minnesota; a photograph of the country club in Montgomery, Alabama, where the two met, reviews of This Side of Paradise; poems to the couple from Ring Lardner; snapshots of their trips abroad; Fitzgerald's careful accounting of his earnings; a photograph of the house on Long Island where The Great Gatsby was conceived; postcards with Fitzgerald's drawings for his daughter. These rare photos and memorabilia combine into a narrative augmented by selections from Scott's and Zelda's own writings, conveying the spirit of particular moments in their lives."--Jacket
Catch as catch can : the collected stories and other writings by Joseph Heller( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before there was a Catch-22, before there was even a Catch-18 (the novel's original title), Joseph Heller had begun sharpening his skills as a writer, searching for the voice that would best express the peculiarly wry view that he held of the world. Starting in 1945, with the publication in Story magazine of the short story "I Don't Love You Anymore," Heller began to reach out to an audience of readers damaged and disillusioned by their experiences during World War, II. That story dealt with the return home of an American soldier who was having more than a little trouble adjusting. The stories published following this debut continued to reflect people at odds with the world around them, usually featuring the "little guy," the "underdog," the "average Joe" who beats the odds by surviving in a generally hostile and unwelcoming world. Written in what is termed the "New York Style," his were stories of urban naturalism, realistic and straightforward, emulating the work of such writers as Irwin Shaw, William Saroyan, John O'Hara, and -- perhaps most especially -- Nelson Algren. For Heller, writing these stories was a part of the learning process, his education on how to get across his own point of view, leading up to the publication of his masterpiece, Catch-22. Of the stories in this collection, thirteen were written before 1961, when Catch-22 was published; of those, five have never before been published. After Catch-22, Heller forsook the short story form. Though five stories were published after 1961, one -- "World Full of Great Cities" -- was actually written in 1949, three of the other four are spin-offs of Catch-22, and one is a preview of Closing Time. Rounding out this collection of the complete published short writings of Joseph Heller are a short play and several nonfiction pieces, mostly related to Catch-22

O lost : a story of the buried life by Thomas Wolfe( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The editing of Thomas Wolfe's first novel, originally titled "O Lost," has been the subject of literary argument since its 1929 publication in abridged form as Look Homeward, Angel. This powerful coming-of-age novel tells the rich story of Eugene Gant, a young North Carolina man who longs to escape the confines of his small-town life and his tumultuous family. At the insistence of Maxwell Perkins, the legendary editor at Charles Scribner's Sons, Wolfe cut the typescript by 22 percent. Sixty-six thousand words were omitted for reasons of propriety and publishing economics, as well as to remove material deemed expendable by Perkins. Published for the first time on October 3, 2000 - the centenary of Wolfe's birth - O Lost presents the complete text of the novel's manuscript." "For seventy years Wolfe scholars have speculated about the merits of the unpublished complete work and about the editorial process - particularly the reputed collaboration of Perkins and Wolfe. In order to present this classic novel in its original form as Wolfe wrote it, Arlyn and Matthew J. Bruccoli have established the text from the carbon copy of the typescript and from Wolfe's pencil manuscript. In addition to restoring passages omitted from Look Homeward, Angel, the editors have corrected errors introduced by the typist and other mistakes in the original text and have explicated problematic readings. An introduction and appendices - including textual, bibliographical, and explanatory notes - reconstruct Wolfe's process of creation and place it in the context of the publishing process."--Jacket
