The Collected Writings of Zelda Fitzgerald

The Collected Writings of Zelda Fitzgerald

Edited by: Matthew J. Bruccoli / Introduction by: Mary Gordon
This comprehensive collection of Zelda Fitzgerald’s work—including her only published novel, Save Me the Waltz—puts the jazz-age heroine in an illuminating literary perspective.

Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald has long been an American cultural icon. Born in Montgomery, Alabama, this southern belle turned flapper was talented in dance, painting, and writing but lived in the shadow of her husband F. Scott Fitzgerald’s success.

This meticulously edited collection includes Zelda’s only published novel, Save Me the Waltz, an autobiographical account of the Fitzgeralds’ adventures in Paris and on the Riviera; her celebrated farce, Scandalabra; eleven short stories; twelve articles; and a selection of letters to her husband, written over the span of their marriage, that reveals the couple’s loving and turbulent relationship. The Collected Writings affirms Zelda’s place as a writer and as a symbol of the Lost Generations as she struggled to define herself through her art.
