Product description

Review

"I'd Die for You stands apart by shining a light on Fitzgerald's darker, more autobiographical side.. a necessary and welcome addition to his oeuvre....Its value derives largely from the different note struck by these stories, the ways in which they diverge from the work that Fitzgerald is often known for. The collection demonstrates his tremendous range, macabre wit, and above all, his risk-taking, most notably in the emotional core of the stories and the unflinching reality from which they derive."--Zaina Arafat "Vice"

"A treasure trove for Fitzgerald enthusiasts, scholars, and aspiring writers... an invaluable glimpse into a brilliant but struggling writer's process."--Heller McAlpin "NPR.org"

"A treasure trove of tales too dark for the magazines of the 1930s. Lucky us."--Tom Beer "Newsday"

"Fitzgerald's supreme luck with editors who 'got' him is continued by Anne Margaret Daniel in this collection of previously unpublished and uncollected Fitzgerald stories, notably from the '30's. In her ministrations to the stories themselves and for readers, contextualizing what hadn't been seen before is about as good as it gets."--Jeff Simon "The Buffalo News"

"For F. Scott Fitzgerald fans wanting a thrill that readers of his time were denied... Part of the charm of this anthology is that the stories appear without the censorship to which they might have been subjected."--James McGrath Morris "Dallas Morning News"

"His best writing is grounded in a specific time and place, and then propelled by his deep emotional attachment to the subject matter... shows curious readers how the author tried to mine an idea... editor Anne Margaret Daniel's individual story introductions are highly informative, and her extensive annotations are illuminating." --Dave Page "Minneapolis Star Tribune"

"How pleasurable to be borne back ceaselessly into the past... The material in this collection trades in mature topics... Fitzgerald's precision and fineness, even at the depth of his powers, exceeds contemporary writers by miles."--Joseph Rago "The New Criterion"

"Many of the stories remained unpublished because Fitzgerald reached a point in his career when he refused to allow his work to be edited by the magazines that might have bought them. Now, here they are -- a welcomed addition to the Fitzgerald canon."--Paul Alexander "Washington Post"

"No English-language author ever wrote a more musical sentence than Fitzgerald, a stunning accomplishment considering his work's diamond-like clarity... few can doubt the greatness of what he did write in his hectic, too-short life."--James Grainger "The Toronto Star"

About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896. He attended Princeton University, joined the United States Army during World War I, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. That same year he married Zelda Sayre and for the next decade the couple lived in New York, Paris, and on the Riviera. Fitzgerald's masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. He died at the age of forty-four while working on The Last Tycoon. Fitzgerald's fiction has secured his reputation as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.

Anne Margaret Daniel teaches literature at the New School University in New York City. She has published widely on Fitzgerald and on Modernism since 1996. Anne Margaret lives in Manhattan and in upstate New York.
