DO NOT READ THIS PENGUIN VERSION- unless you want the re-ordered chronological version, not Fitzgerald's 1934 original, 7 April 2009
Penguin make much of the fact that there were seventeen versions of Tender is the Night; this is to justify the fact which they don't tell you- this green-jacketed version is completely different to the 1934 version. That was told in flashbacks; this version was re-ordered chronologically after Fitzgerald's death by friend and critic Malcolm Cowley.
Do not read this if you are looking for the standard edition; this is an obscure, discredited version which was assumed to have been out of print since the 1970s. It is of scholarly value, but is NOT the 'proper' version.
