Praise
"The Fitzgeralds were so thoroughly children of their time that they were prophetic of the future, of our time...[T]his book is solidly researched, emotional moving, and intellectually satisfying. I herewith nominate it for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize."
"[Scott's] collusion with [Zelda's] doctors in a ghastly attempt to re-educate' Zelda into wifehood was, for me, the shocking centre of Milford's book....Milford's biography is saved from polemic by its grace and tact. Her own commentary is spare; most of the story is told in irresistible letters...so that the dynamic of a wife's wreck becomes irrefutable, not imposed. Milford never denies that Zelda was ill as well as insulted."
From the Publisher
Annotation Nancy Milford's ground-breaking biography of Zelda Fitzgerald, published in 1970, startled admirers of F. Scott Fitzgerald with a portrait of his wife as a woman in her own right who was, in fact, quite different from the version of her that appeared in her husband's fiction. The book also makes it clear how much Scott depended on Zelda not only as a wife but as an inspiration.
Editors Note Zelda Sayre started out as a Southern beauty, became an international wonder, and died by fire in a madhouse. With her husband, F. Scott Fitzgerald, she moved in a golden aura of excitement, romance, and promise. The epitome of the Jazz Age, they rode the crest of the era to its collapse and their own. As a result of years of exhaustive research, Nancy Milford brings alive the tormented, elusive personality of Zelda and clarifies as never before her relationship with Scott Fitzgerald. Zelda traces the inner disintegration of a gifted, despairing woman, torn by the clash between her husband’s career and her own talent.
