F. Scott Fitzgerald on Writing. Edited by Larry W. Phillips.
by Fitzgerald, F. Scott.

Publisher Information:
Scribners, New York: 1985.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine, bright unclipped dust jacket. This collection brings together in one volume Fitzgerald's thoughts on his own work and the writing profession. This slender volume consists of Fitzgerald's pronouncements on writing and writers. Excerpts are drawn from the author's letters and novels as well as from previously published collections such as The Crack-up (1945) and In His Own Time (1971). They are arranged under ten arbitrary headings including "What Writing Is and Does," "What a Writer Is," "Characters," and "Publishing." No attempt has been made to separate the significant from the banal, nor is biographical or critical background provided. Furthermore, the editor makes no distinctions between Fitzgerald's own comments on writing and those expressed by his fictional characters.
