F Scott FITZGERALD

 


Read ebooks by F Scott Fitzgerald

F Scott Fitzgerald was an American writer and a contemporary of Virginia Woolf. His works are also very popular downloads at this site.

Fitzgerald is considered by many to be one of the twentieth century's greatest writers and "The Great Gatsby" is a 20th Century classic. The article on the book at Wikipedia notes that "the novel chronicles an era that Fitzgerald himself dubbed the 'Jazz Age.' Following the shock and chaos of World War I, American society enjoyed unprecedented levels of prosperity during the 'roaring' 1920s as the economy soared. At the same time, Prohibition, the ban on the sale and manufacture of alcohol mandated by the Eighteenth Amendment, made millionaires out of bootleggers and led to an increase in organized crime. Although Fitzgerald, like Nick Carraway in his novel, idolized the riches and glamour of the age, he was uncomfortable with the unrestrained materialism and lack of morality that went with it."
