Born in 1896, ____________ and his wife Zelda became high society during the time of Prohibition after his first novels became smashing successes.
F. Scott Fitzgerald. Much of Fitzgerald�s work is commentary on the boozing, wasteful lifestyle led by American high society�even as much as he yearned to be, and was, a part of that same culture. His storylines, particularly This Side of Paradise, are loosely based on his own life. Fitzgerald�s greatest works include The Great Gatsby, The Beautiful and the Damned, and Tender is the Night. He died with his last novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, unfinished.
