Download and read online Tales from the Jazz Age in PDF and EPUB Tales of the Jazz Age (1922) is a collection of eleven short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Divided into three separate parts, according to subject matter, it includes one of his better-known short stories, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". All of the stories had been published earlier, independently, in either Metropolitan Magazine (New York), Saturday Evening Post, Smart Set, Collier's, Chicago Sunday Tribune, or Vanity Fair. The Jelly-Bean: This is a Southern story, with the setting laid in the small Lily of Tarleton, Georgia. Fitzgerald wrote that he had "a profound affection for Tarleton, but somehow whenever I write a story about it I receive letters from all over the South denouncing me in no uncertain terms." Written shortly after his first novel was published, the author also collaborated with his wife on certain scenes. The story momentarily follows the life of a "jelly-bean", or idler, named Jim Powell. An invitation to a dance with the old crowd revives his dreams of social advancement and love, until the consequences of drink and power of money come through and ruin them. The Camel's Back: In the short introduction to this short story, Fitzgerald wrote, "I suppose that of all the stories I have ever written this one cost me the least travail and perhaps gave me the most amusement." The story, he confessed, was written "with the express purpose of buying a platinum and diamond wrist watch which cost six hundred dollars", and took seven hours to finish. Though it was the least-liked story by Fitzgerald in the volume, it was included in the O. Henry Memorial Collection (of the O. Henry Award) of 1920. May Day: Published as a novelette in the The Smart Set in July, 1920, "May Day" relates a series of events which took place in the spring of the previous year, during the "general hysteria" which inaugurated the Jazz Age. Porcelain and Pink: A play, published in The Smart Set in January, 1920.

Download and read online The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Other Jazz Age Stories in PDF and EPUB The inspiration for the major motion picture starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, plus eighteen other stories by the beloved author of The Great Gatsby In the title story of this collection by one of America’s greatest writers, a baby born in 1860 begins life as an old man and proceeds to age backward. F. Scott Fizgerald hinted at this kind of inversion when he called his era “a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken.” Perhaps nowhere in American fiction has this “Lost Generation” been more vividly preserved than in Fitzgerald’s short fiction. Spanning the early twentieth-century American landscape, this original collection captures, with Fitzgerald’s signature blend of enchantment and disillusionment, America during the Jazz Age. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Download and read online Big Bosses in PDF and EPUB No man is a hero to his valet, said Montaigne, they sayan aphorism that applies especially to American industrialists and the people who work for them. Behind (or under) these big bosses are assistants who become privy to their employers social lives and personal tics. Althea Altemus worked for a number of these men in the 1910s and 20s, starting with James Deering of International Harvester, and Big Bosses is her illustrated memoir. A tart and self-aware writer, Altemus has a good sense of humor and can limn an indelible character in a few sentences. She brings the rarefied milieu of Vizcaya, Deering s Miami mansion, to vivid life, with all of its Xanaduan extravagances. Altemus also tells us much about high society in Chicago in the 1920s, including the domestic intrigues of a big boss, his wife, and his exceptionally secretive mistress. Altemus was also a single mother, quite a scandal for the time and a fact she needed to hide. She writes of her many struggles in raising her child, Tidbits, and living on her owngiving us a full portrait of a woman who was present at the gilded peak of Jazz Age society but was not a part of it."
