First published in 1922, “The Beautiful and Damned” followed Fitzgerald's impeccable debut, “This Side of Paradise”, thus securing his place in the tradition of great American novelists. Embellished with the author's lyrical prose, here is the story of Harvard-educated, aspiring aesthete Anthony Patch and his beautiful wife, Gloria. As they await the inheritance of his grandfather's fortune, their reckless marriage sways under the influence of alcohol and avarice. As in Fitzgerald's other novels, the characters are complex, especially with respect to marriage and intimacy. A devastating look at the nouveau riche and New York nightlife, as well as the ruinous effects of wild ambition, “The Beautiful and the Damned” achieved stature as one of Fitzgerald's most accomplished novels. Its distinction as a classic endures to this day. Pocket Book's Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. Special features include critical perspectives, suggestions for further read, and a unique visual essay composed of period photographs that help bring every word to life.
