The Amateur Emigrant is a remarkable account of Stevenson's nautical journey from Scotland to California. He has vividly sketched the hazards of racial and social class distinction in British and American societies. The work is a testament to his keen insight and perception. A true classic itinerary!
By the Irish American Jazz Age novelist and short story writer regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. He was the self-styled spokesman of the "Lost Generation" and author of The Great Gatsby (1925). His debut novel, This Side of Paradise (1920) examines the lives and morality of post-World War I youth. Flappers and Philosophers (1920) was his first collection of short stories. His second novel, The Beautiful and Damned (1922), demonstrates an evolution and maturity in his writing, and provides an excellent portrait of America during the Jazz Age, as does Tales of the Jazz Age (1922).
Flappers and Philosophers was the first collection of short stories written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, published in 1920. It includes eight stories: "The Offshore Pirate" "The Ice Palace" "Head and Shoulders" "The Cut-Glass Bowl" "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" "Benediction" "Dalyrimple Goes Wrong" "The Four Fists"
The way Fitzgerald writes is simply gorgeous. He has a way about his prose that is both lyrical and full of movement. This collection of stories runs the gamut of pleasure and pain, and Fitzgerald is a master of both.
