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. The legendary friendship--and rivalry--of these literary giants was compellingly chronicled by Hemingway in A Moveable Feast, but as Hemingway reminded the reader, that book is fiction. Here, in Fitzgerald and Hemingway, leading scholar 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. With a dazzling cast of characters that includes legendary Scribner's editor Maxwell Perkins, the artist/socialites Gerald and Sara Murphy, Zelda Fitzgerald and Hadley Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, John Dos Passos, Archibald MacLeish, agent Harold Ober, publisher Horace Liveright, and Lady Duff Twysden, Scott Donaldson recounts the glory and pain of a writing life and the rise and fall of the great literary friendship of our time.
