Clean, tight, unmarked; slight wear to inside corners; otherwise absolute minimal wear; appears unread; F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel brilliantly satirizes a glamorous and doomed marriage in the decadent high society of New York City in the 1920s. Inspired in part by Fitzgerald's own tumultuous union with his wife, Zelda, this book chronicles the downfall of would-be Jazz Age aristocrats Anthony and Gloria Patch. The novel introduces us to the pleasure-seeking Anthony and his beautiful, vain, and shallow golden girl just after their marriage, when - believing a large inheritance to be imminent - they begin living well beyond their means. When the expected windfall is withheld, their lives are consumed by the pursuit of wealth and their alliance begins to disintegrate. Haunting and keenly observed, this book provides a vivid portrait of a lost world and the rootless and materialistic generation that inhabited it.
