Première phrase
This unlikely story begins on a sea that was a blue dream, as colorful as blue silk stockings, and beneath a sky as blue as the irises of children's eyes. Lire la première page

Fitzgerald's stories manage to unite his otherworldly grasp of the fluctuations in the human soul. He is a master at presenting its contrivances and vanities as things that happen to people. The tension in these tales rises with almost unconscious force. Red herrings of possible conclusions are whispered but almost in the style of a trickster. Someone always gets conned and someone unmasked- all within that now long-gone era that held a fullhouse of interesting details and premonitions of an ominous future. "Beatrice Bobs her Hair" always has something more to say about savage young ladies. It deserves its place, I think, in every highschool English curriculum. The spoiled rich girls inevitably fall madly in love- with the cads or the tricksters. It was interesting to read "Benediction" in this era of the priest scandals. How priests were seen by Fitzgerald, or perhaps how he conceived his alter ego- is apparent in his return to his natural self through the heroine's choice at the end. This writer always has a trick up his sleeve for the unpredictable conclusion.
I am surprised that there are not more raves over this collection, but perhaps that is the nature of the post modern era. I on the other hand -rave. Story, resolution, all those little formulas that separate the artist from the amateur in the impossible short story form. Fitzgerald, except for perhaps in Gatsby, never achieved such form and plotting in his novels. His youth too, can be sensed in the humorous and rather light-hearted manner by which he casts his characters and those obstacles that they encounter.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Numerous typos that detract from meaning 2 août 2011

I understand that this Kindle book is free and that it was transcribed from physical books by a community of volunteers, but it really should be revised, for there are a great deal of data entry errors that detract from the meaning of the writing.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Shameful amount of typos, even for a free book! 10 janvier 2012
Par Christina R. - Publié sur Amazon.com

I happen to love this book, and I love F. Scott Fitzgerald even more. So I was appalled at the number of typos in this Kindle book's copy. I understand that this Kindle book is free, but does that mean its final version doesn't deserve to be properly proofread?

I was already feeing funny about reading a book like this via Kindle. (My Kindle was a gift, by the way.) I vowed to only buy books that I already owned in hard or soft copy, just out of principle. I bought this book to read on the plane and couldn't even get through its first story without becoming a little bit angry and sad. I finally just gave up and will now delete this from my Kindle "library".

This convinces me that in being converted to a Kindle book, every "real" book is in danger of losing some of its dignity.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 short stories, worth your time 23 juin 2012

This book was first published in 1920 and contains 8 short stories. The printed edition of this book is 177 pages long. All the stories are not only a pleasure to read, they also allow you a glimpse into the 1910's-1920's. There are a few errors and typos in this e-book version, but it doesn't get much worse than 'tall' where it should be 'tell', or 'had had' in stead of 'had'; so a bit distracting at times, but no major problem. I do recommend this book to anyone who likes to read (early-twentieth century) literature.
(In case you're wondering what a 'flapper' is, it is an informal word -used in the period around 1900-1930- to describe a fashionable young woman who was very modern (short dress, bobbed hair, drinking, smoking, treating sex in a casual way) and who flouted social and sexual norms.)

The short stories in this book are:

-The Offshore Pirate
-The Ice Palace
-Head and Shoulders
-The Cut-Glass Bowl
-Bernice Bobs Her Hair
-Dalyrimple Goes Wrong
-The Four Fists
