It's disturbing to me that even after the publication of this exhaustively researched book, people still prefer Scotty's version over Zelda's. What I understand is that F. Scott Fitzgerald was jealous of his more talented wife, stole from her diaries and published her words as his own, simultaneously having her committed to various mental institutions and making it worth the psychiatrists' while to keep her there. He tells her that her memories actually belong to him and she has no right to them, since he's the famous writer (and how much of that fame is based on her talent?) I hope the Me-Too movement wakes people up to this sort of abuse that was regularly perpetrated against women at least up into the 1960s. ( )

Poor Zelda!!oh my. I never would have trudged thru this entire book if not for the introduction that implied Patti Smith read/finished this book. The part about Save me the Waltz became so excruciating long with an entire synopsis of the book I skipped the entire 2nd part of the chapter.

I'd like to visit their graves in Maryland.

Such a sad story about a brilliant woman. I suppose it is inevitable that Zelda's story can not be told without Scott's story and vice versa. But so much Scott and even though he took care of her he was the major cause of her mental illness or exacerbated it.

What would he have become without her? Maybe nothing but a hack alcoholic writer. And as he mused, she may have married a boring hometown boy and led a hometown boring life.

I suppose the world should be glad their paths crossed that fateful evening at the Montgomery country club. ( )

All the dirt on one of the most tumultuous relationships in literature. F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda had one of those love/hate relationships that we all recognize as being ultimately doomed. Takes us back to the jazz age, throws in a bunch of alcohol, and then stirs things up. ( )

The biography of Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. This book gives us a look at a literary couple during the 20's and 30's. I found it interesting but it bogged down at times with the exchange of letters between the couple. Zelda's letters at times were hard to follow. I also thought that Scott became the lead character at times. She led a tragic life because of her illness. F. Scott was less than wonderful. ( )
