Biographie de l'auteur

F Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) left Princeton University in 1917 to join the army. He is said to have epitomized the Jazz Age, which he himself defined as 'a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken'. In 1920 he entered a traumatic marriage which was to influence much of his writing.

Excellent chef d'oeuvre de Fitzgerald. Édition poche, le papier n'est pas terrible, en revanche les notes originales de l'auteur sont aussi présentées. Ça vaut la peine.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A masterpiece in the making 23 mai 2009
Par David Bonesteel - Publié sur
F. Scott Fitzgerald's final novel, left uncompleted because of the author's death, tells the story of Monroe Stahr, a hotshot Hollywood producer facing his mortality and longing for a second chance at love. The Hollywood sections, which were informed by the time Fitzgerald spent as a screenwriter, are wonderful, featuring the snappy dialogue and fast pace of a screwball comedy from the 40s. The prose in the romantic parts is a bit overheated and sappy, but no doubt that would have been improved by the author had he lived. A brilliant scene near the end, in which three children encounter the wreckage of a plane crash, makes me ache to read the novel that will never be.

Fitzerald is one of my son's favorite authors and for Christmas one year I bought all of his books for their library. I finally bought this one for my own library. It is a challenge seeing the narrator, (Fitzgerald) as a female. Monroe Stahr is a Hollywood big shot and Fitzgerald doesn't finish his last novel before he dies. If you're looking for another Gatsby, it's not going to happen here. It's a good read, but it's not Gatsby.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting But Incomplete. 5 avril 2006
Par J. Robinson - Publié sur
Fitzgerald is considered to be an important early 20th century American writer. I bought and read Fitzgerald's five major novels ("This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and the Damned, The Great Gatsby, Tender is the Night, and The Last Tycoon") plus one book of short stories plus the biography "Some Sort of Epic Grandeur" by Matthew Broccoli.

His first major novel, "This Side of Paradise," along with "Gatsby" and "Tender is the Night" are considered to be great novels, and I enjoyed the reads. The other two have serious flaws. Interestingly, the Bloomsbury Guide does not rate any of the five well known Fitzgerald novels as masterpieces. His best or most complicated work is "Tender is the Night," but it is less well known than "Gatsby" which became a successful film.

Fitzgerald wrote about half a dozen novels and over 100 short stories between approximately 1917 and 1940. The short stories were done largely to make money to support his life style. In later years, he worked on a number of Hollywood film scripts. He died poor in Hollywood in 1940 at an age of just 44, leaving an insurance policy as his main asset.

The present novel was written by Fitzgerald at the end of his short life. It reflects his own life as a screenwriter although here the protagonist is a dynamic producer, not a writer.

This is a very unsatisfactory novel to read because it has one major flaw: Fitzgerald dies at page 150 leaving the reader hanging mid-air, seemingly in the middle of the unfinished story. It is edited by Edmund Wilson and Wilson suggests different endings, but it does not quite work.

It is an interesting read for two reasons. Firstly, other than his over 100 short works, Fitzgerald has just a handful of novels so there is the curiosity factor. Secondly, it is interesting to see how he develops as a writer. Here in "The Last Tycoon" the great prose and romance is largely gone. It seems more or less like any other Hollywood story. He seems to have lost that romantic identification of the earlier work. Perhaps he was tired.
