5.0 out of 5 stars Ten lovely tales from an American Original., 17 Feb 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Babylon Revisted (Paperback)
F. Scott Fitzgerald was as much a master of the short story as he was the novel, and some of these tales attain the classical status achieved by The Great Gatsby. From the O.Henry-like fable of "The Ice Palace" to such masterpieces as "May Day" and the title story, Fitzgerald moves easily from mere entertainment to highbrow artistry, often creating a blend of the two as in the outlandish fantasy "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz". In "The Rich Boy," Fitzgerald creates a character every bit as believable as Nick Carraway and every bit as heartbreaking as Gatsby. This is also the story that gave rise to the famous Fitzgerald maxim that the rich "are very different than you and me."
This collection comes highly recommended to anyone interested in American Classics and short-story masterpieces.
