Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was an American writer and novelist.
His autobiographical novel This Side of Paradise in 1920 made him known in the postwar society of the East Coast, and The Great Gatsby in 1925 epitomizes the Jazz Age.
His wife Zelda's descent into mental illness forms the subject of Tender is the Night in 1934.
Fitzgerald was born in Minnesota. His first book, This Side of Paradise, reflected his experiences at Princeton University.
In The Great Gatsby in 1925 the narrator resembles his author, and Gatsby, the self-made millionaire, is lost in the soulless society he enters.
Fitzgerald's wife Zelda Sayre (1900-1947), a schizophrenic, entered an asylum in 1930, after which he declined into alcoholism.
His other works include numerous short stories and the novels The Beautiful and the Damned in 1922 and The Last Tycoon, which was unfinished at his death.
