Before Gatsby : the first twenty-six stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

Reader's companion to F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the night by Matthew Joseph Bruccoli( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tender Is the Night, the novel F. Scott Fitzgerald worked longest and hardest on, has not achieved its proper recognition because the text is peppered with errors and chronological inconsistencies. Moreover, the novel has a concentration of references to people, places, and events that most readers no longer recognize. In Reader's Companion to F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Tender Is the Night," Matthew J. Bruccoli corrects the errors and explains the factual details. He also offers a selection of maps, photos, correspondence, and notes that demystify the writing of one of literature's most misunderstood - and underrated - masterpieces
Crux : the letters of James Dickey by James Dickey( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Dickey was a great poet, a legend of the reading circuit, and - after the best-selling Deliverance and its celebrated movie version - a celebrity. This collection, reaching from 1943 to his death in 1997, and from a fledgling poet to an ailing man of letters, constitutes a short course in literature and poetry since World War II." "Dickey's correspondents include John Berryman, Harold Bloom, Philip Booth, Richard Howard, Denise Levertov, Robert Lowell, Donald Hall, James Merrill, Ezra Pound, Anne Sexton, Mark Strand, Robert Penn Warren, Richard Wilbur, and James Wright." "Entertaining and erudite, these letters reveal the fierce, complicated literary intellect of the man John Updike called "the high-flyer of American poets.""--Jacket
Modern African American writers( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

F. Scott Fitzgerald on authorship by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a substantial introduction to the volume, Matthew J. Bruccoli positions Fitzgerald as a case history for the profession-of-authorship approach to American literary history formulated by William Charvat. Bruccoli notes that more is known about the professional life of Fitzgerald than about that of any other major American author, and, drawing on that wealth of information, he challenges familiar myths about Fitzgerald's squandering of fortunes and literary genius. Bruccoli exposes the error of segregating Fitzgerald's magazine and movie work from his novels, suggesting instead that a symbiotic relationship exists among these works and ties them together
The sons of Maxwell Perkins : letters of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Wolfe, and their editor( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 1938 F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote to his editor Maxwell Perkins, "What a time you've had with your sons, Max - Ernest gone to Spain, me gone to Hollywood, Tom Wolfe reverting to an artistic hill-billy." As the sole literary editor with name recognition among students of American literature, Perkins remains permanently linked to Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Wolfe in literary history and literary myth. Their relationships, which were largely epistolary, play out in the 221 letters Matthew J. Bruccoli has assembled in this volume. The collection documents the extent of the fatherly forbearance, attention, and encouragement the legendary Scribners editor gave to his authorial sons. The correspondent portrays his ability to juggle the requirements of his three geniuses." "Perkins wanted his stars to be close friends and wrote to each of them about the others. They responded in kind: Fitzgerald on Hemingway and Wolfe, Wolfe on Fitzgerald, Hemingway on Wolfe and Fitzgerald. The novelists also wrote to each other. But contrary to Perkins's hopes for a brotherhood among them, many of their letters express rivalry and suspicion rather than affinity. Perkins encouraged the writers professionally but never took sides in their sibling rivalries." "Addressing an overlooked aspect of literary study, the letters center on the acts of writing, editing, and publishing, and on the writers' relationships with the house of Scribner and one another. In addition to providing insight into the personalities of these literary heroes, the correspondence reveals how editing and publishing have changed since the Twenties and Thirties - a golden era for Scribners and for American literature. In particular, the letters correct the incomplete, oversimplified image of Perkins and his function as an editor - especially his relationship with Thomas Wolfe."--Jacket

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hemingway and the Mechanism of Fame assembles Hemingway's public writings about himself, all framed as documents of support for or criticism of other people and other products. Comprising 103 items - 54 public statements and letters; 20 introductions, forewords, and prefaces; and 29 book blurbs, reviews, and product endorsements - the collection chronicles the means by which Hemingway advanced his own standing through these literary and extraliterary writings." "From his commercial endorsements for the Parker 51 pen and Ballantine Ale to his Nobel Prize acceptance statement and commentary on President Kennedy's inauguration, from his enthusiastic blurbs for sporting books to his statements on Ezra Pound, Hemingway shows himself to be an expert marketing strategist, infusing each piece with thoughtfully crafted autobiography designed to engage his public and promote his image. Arranged in chronological order and spanning more than forty years, the selections in this volume map the development of Hemingway's most complex, studied, criticized, parodied, and celebrated fictional character: Ernest Hemingway himself."--Jacket

The last romantic : a poet among publishers : the oral autobiography of John Hall Wheelock by John Hall Wheelock( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the forty-six years that John Hall Wheelock (1886-1978) - an influential literary figure and respected poet - worked at Charles Scribner's Sons, the company was the leading literary publishing house in America. During this golden era, Scribners included F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, James Jones, Alan Paton, George Santayana, and Thomas Wolfe among its authors. As the editor who assisted and then succeeded the legendary Maxwell Perkins as editor in chief, Wheelock worked with some of the nation's most acclaimed - and difficult - authors. Wheelock's record of his remarkable life and career offers an unparalleled account of New York publishing and the American literary scene during its richest period." "Wheelock's memoir extends beyond the inner workings at Scribners to his own career as a poet and his friendships with a wide circle of literary figures, including Conrad Aiken, Vachel Lindsay, Sara Teasdale, and Elinor Wylie. Wheelock's dictated autobiography traces his writing of poetry from schoolboy beginnings, through a Harvard apprenticeship that led him to publish his first collection in collaboration with Van Wyck Brooks, to his mature years as an esteemed figure in American letters. In addition to documenting the profession of authorship in America, Wheelock's recollections provide a social history of the affluent society of his boyhood and youth before and after the turn of the nineteenth century."--Jacket
