Product Description

Review

"A tragedy backlist by beauty." "-- Daily Express""For Fitzgerald desolation is a precondition of the lyrical. Hence the most distinctive impression of Tender: A beautiful novel about failure." "-- Independent""It is one of those books that you read and feel a shift... the story is told so poetically and eloquently. It is one of those books that you read and think: if I could only remember that sentence -- it is so beautiful." "--" Sam Taylor-Wood

Book Description

A heartbreaking American masterpiece of the 'Roaring Twenties' by the author of The Great Gatsby --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

'A beautiful novel about failure' Independent

It is the French Riviera in the 1920s. Nicole and Dick Diver are a wealthy, elegant, magnetic couple. A coterie of admirers are drawn to them, none more so than the blooming young starlet Rosemary Hoyt. When Rosemary falls for Dick, the Diver's calculated perfection begins to crack and dark truths emerge. Tender is the Night is as sad as it is exquisite.

'Haunting... He writes of longing in a way that is heartbreaking' Sunday Telegraph

About the Author

F Scott Fitzgerald was born Minnesota in 1896 and went to Princeton University, which he left to join the army in 1917. He was said to have epitomised the Jazz Age, which he himself emphatically denied. In the 1920s he married Zelda Sayre. Their traumatic marriage and his subsequent breakdowns became the leading influence in his writing, which included THE GREAT GATSBY and THE LAST TYCOON. He died suddenly in 1940.
