F. Scott Fitzgerald is regarded as one of the finest literary craftsmen of his, or of any other, generation. Entrenched in the milieu of the reckless 1920’s, his stories reflect the carefree, impetuous attitude of the time, but they also go far beyond providing a mere snapshot of a generation. Glittering Things: Flappers, Fantasies & Tales of the Jazz Age contains a compendium of early works by Fitzgerald—a time when he was at his most experimental in terms of themes and techniques, as well as a time when he was at his most influential with the public. Included in this special edition is the novelette Winter Dreams (a story that would eventually become his masterpiece, The Great Gatsby). Also included are May Day and The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, two of the most well-regarded pieces in the Fitzgerald canon, offering the writer’s candid analysis of the darker side of the Jazz Age’s quest for excess. Fitzgerald’s trademark wit and mastery of dialogue are also well represented with the stories The Camel’s Back, Porcelain and Pink, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
