Hemingway Vs. Fitzgerald: the Rise and Fall of a Literary Friendship.
by [Paris in the 20s] Donaldson, Scott.

Publisher Information:
Overlook Press, Woodstock: 1999.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. In this volume, the author recounts the friendship and rivalry of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway that began in Paris in the 1920s and lasted long after their deaths. Prize-winning biographer Scott Donaldson goes beyond the mythologyzing to create a true, multi-faceted narrative of a great friendship fueled by admiration, jealousy, and liquor-a heady mixture of literary scholarship, history, and gossip. The friendship started in Paris and the French Riviera where the more famous Fitzgerald introduced novice writer Hemingway to Gertrude Stein and socialites Gerald and Sara Murphy. As the years progressed, the friendship became as mercurial and complex as the writers themselves. With a dazzling cast of characters that includes legendary Scribner's editor Maxwell Perkins, Zelda Fitzgerald and Hadley Hemingway, and writers Morley Callaghan and Edmund Wilson, Scott Donaldson recounts the glory and pain the great literary friendship of our time.
