5.0 out of 5 stars Fictional account of the original flapper girl., 10 April 2013
This review is from: Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am a huge fan of F Scott Fitzgerald, and have always been fascinated with the relationship between himself and Zelda. Their complex relationship makes for great reading, they were a fascinating couple who both had their own personal demons to contend with.

In Z Therese Anne Fowler has produced a fictional account of the life of Zelda and Scott and has produced a wonderful novel. It reminded me of The Paris Wife by Paula Mclain, which deals with Ernest Hemingways marriage to Hadley Richardson, where Hadley shines out of the novel, and in fact Zelda and Scott appear. Here it's Zelda who takes centre stage, and we are given an insight into her life as a wife, mother and an artist/writer whose star was clouded by that of her husband. As many biographers and critics have suggested as well as Fowler, people tend to either believe that Zelda destroyed Scott's life or that infact it was the other way around and that it was Scott who ruined hers.

Z is a great read showing how two people who came together, became iconic figures of the 20th century due to his incredible talent and due to the tragedy of their lives fascinated and captivated all who followed.
