Review

"The Love of the Last Tycoon carries the authority of a great writer working very close to the top of his form. Only scholars will need to consult the 200 pages of extensive critical apparatus included in this edition. But anyone who admires Fitzgerald will want to take another look at the 129 pages of Tycoon text, now that they have at last been printed as he would have wanted them to be." Scott Donaldson, Chicago Tribune

"This critical edition of Fitzgerald's unfinished final novel restores the author's original 1940 version..." American Literature

..."the Bruccoli version adds new, valuable, and important information regarding Fitzgerald's artistry, his knowledge of the film industry, and the accomplishment represented by what still must be regarded as work in progress....This book, essential for the support of detailed study of Fitzgerald and the American novel, may well replace the older Wilson version." Choice

..."this novel has been considered the finest story of the Hollywood film industry during the age of the great studios. In this new edition Bruccoli presents us with Fitzgerald's manuscript drafts, revised typescripts, and notes, giving us not only the novel but its creation. And Bruccoli's introduction is itself a fascinating piece of research; a marvelous read." Books of the Southwest

"The production of the definitive edition, based upon a significant number of hand-and-type written MSS...is a notable achievement, made especially important and necessary because of the inchoate and incomplete state of the novel. The work offers a marvelous opportunity for readers and writers alike literally to watch a novel in the making..." David Noel Freedman, Michigan Quarterly review

Product Description

The Last Tycoon, edited by the renowned literary critic Edmund Wilson, was first published a year after Fitzgerald's death and includes the author's notes and outline for his unfinished literary masterpiece. It is the story of the young Hollywood mogul Monroe Stahr, who was inspired by the life of boy-genius Irving Thalberg, and is an exposé of the studio system in its heyday.
