Synopsis

The Beautiful and Damned, first published in 1922, is F. Scott Fitzgerald's second novel. It tells the story of Anthony Patch (a 1920s socialite and presumptive heir to a tycoon's fortune), his relationship with his wife Gloria, his service in the army, and alcoholism. The novel provides an excellent portrait of the Eastern elite as the Jazz Age begins its ascent, engulfing all classes into what will soon be known as Café Society. As with all of Fitzgerald's other novels, it is a brilliant character study and account of the complexities of marriage and intimacy. The book is believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's relationship and marriage with Zelda Fitzgerald.
