This Side of Paradise (Paperback)

F. Scott Fitzgerald


Fitzgerald's classic coming-of-age tale set against the turbulence of the early 20th century. 'I sure am up in the air. I know I'm not a regular fellow, yet I loathe anybody else that isn't' On the eve of a dance at the Greenwich County Club, Amory Blaine's life reaches its peak. He's at Princeton. He's handsome. He looks good in a dinner jacket. And, most importantly, a beautiful girl loves him. But then the night spirals quickly out of control. And as the years roll on, Amory is lost in a sea of change. After serving in France during the Second World War, he returns to America cynical and bored. Never quite able to fit in, he represents a generation of young people from the 1920s who have grown up to find all the wars are fought, all the gods are dead and all faith in man is shaken.
