In this collection of short stories we can enjoy Fitzgerald at his best. The theme is similar in most of the stories but never stereotyped. Each of the sad young men has his own story to tell, which is always absorbing. Wealth, parties, courtship, carefree life, blissfulness. And behind all these, disaster is always ambushing. Just to remind us the vanity. To make us contemplate that money, success, love - and even happiness- can be vanished on the spur of the moment... Moralists would condemn him. Feminists would hate him. Yet, the huge crowd of his followers adored him and the fact that, almost seventy years after his death, his writings gain more and more recognition attests to the greatness of Fitzerald's work.
