Baker & Taylor
Providing a dramatic portrait of American manners and mores during the 1920s and 1930s, a collection of ten stories probes the false security of wealth, the emotional sterility fostered by technology, and the fragile nature of human existence. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster
Written between 1920 and 1937, when F. Scott Fitzgerald was at the height of his creative powers, these ten lyric tales represent some of the author's finest fiction. In them, Fitzgerald creates vivid, timeless characters -- a dissatisfied southern belle seeking adventure in the north; the tragic hero of the title story who lost more than money in the stock market; giddy and dissipated young men and women of the interwar period. From the lazy town of Tarleton, Georgia, to the glittering cosmopolitan centers of New York and Paris, Fitzgerald brings the society of the "Lost Generation" to life in these masterfully crafted gems, showcasing the many gifts of one of our most popular writers.
