Compiled and published after Fitzgerald's death by his friend, the prominent critic and editor Edmund Wilson,The Crack-Up is a collection of writings that chronicle the author's state of mind and personal perspective on events, fellow writers and public figures of the 1920s and 1930s. In addition to articles and essays such as the celebrated title piece, this volume includes a selection of Fitzgerald's notebooks, which – as well as being a repository of anecdotes and witty lines – provide a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into the novelist's creative process, with passages that would be reworked intohis fiction.

An entertaining and eclectic miscellany that sheds light on the author and his times,The Crack-Up is an invaluable companion to such well-known works asThe Great Gatsby andTender Is the Night.

Considered one of the finest American writers of the twentieth century, F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940) was the author of various novels and short stories chronicling life in the US during the Roaring Twenties.

"He was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a generation." -The New York Times
