**THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER** ‘This belated collection shows us the depths of Fitzgerald's vision and talent. Only now are we beginning to appreciate what was lost’ The Pool I'd Die for You is a collection of the last remaining unpublished short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, iconic author of The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night.
All eighteen short fictions collected here were lost in one sense or another: physically lost, coming to light only recently; lost in the turbulence of Fitzgerald's later life; lost to readers because his editors sometimes did not understand what he was trying to write. These fascinating stories offer a new insight into the arc of Fitzgerald's career, and demonstrate his stylistic agility and imaginative power as a writer at the forefront of Modern literature.
Praise for I'd Die for You:
‘Superbly edited and annotated, this richly fascinating miscellany is a marvellous reminder of what was lost when, at forty-four, a coronary killed Fitzgerald’ Sunday Times
‘Forward-thinking for their time . . . Fitzgerald was a master of short story writing’ The Times
‘This much-vaunted collection of stories . . . is a ragtag bundle of surprises, curios, irrelevancies and delights . . . We can marvel at the strength of his imagination, his display of elegance and precision’ Sunday Telegraph
‘Readers will find much to enjoy in this gorgeously produced book’ New York Times
‘A beguiling meditation on the dark side of wealth and the American dream’ Independent
