Product Overview

May Day, Fitzgerald''s first great novelette, mingles autobiographical details with events from contemporary history. In May 1919, after an interfraternity dance at Delmonico''s, Fitzgerald was bounced out of the Fifty-ninth-Street Childs for a disturbance similar to the one created by Peter Himmel in the story. At the same time, the assault on the New York Trumpet by a mob of drunken soldiers parallels a raid on the socialist New York Call during the red scare of 1919. Like many of Fitzgerald''s stories from Tales of the Jazz Age, May Day includes a "touch of disaster"--in this case the violent despair of down-and-out Yale man Gordon Sterrett--which is contrasted with the oblivious pursuit of pleasure by Gordon''s double, his wealthy, man-about-town classmate, Philip Dean. May Day is a masterpiece from one of America''s greatest writers. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
