New edition of Fitzgerald's second novel, one of the most popular modern classics. Beautiful cover illustration by Art Deco artist George Barbier. Lavishly produced edition printed on Arctic paper with flaps, and four black-and-white plates. Contains notes and extensive apparatus on Fitzgerald's life and works. The heir to his grandfather's considerable fortune, Anthony Patch is led astray from the path to gainful employment by the temptations and distractions of the 1920s Jazz Age. His descent into dissolution and profligacy is accelerated by his marriage to the attractive but turbulent Gloria, and the couple soon discover the dangerous flip side of a life of glamour and debauchery.
