    Jazz Age Stories is like a sampler platter of F Scott Fitzgerald for the uninitiated The Ice Palace, May Day, and The Offshore Pirate are all classic Fitzgerald stories and, along with the completely bizarre Mr Icky play, the highlights of this collection The others range from good but slight Benediction, Dayrimple Goes Wrong to the just plain awful The Cut Glass Bowl bei

    F Scott Fitzgerald has this eerily keen way of capturing the spirit of social time As each story unfolds, the correct way of, and reasons for, being are made apparent from the perspectives of the rich, the poor, the wannabes, the socialites, the lost ones, and all the other usual suspects of that period in collective North American culture.

    Excellent set of short stories Fine character studies Fitzgerald knows how to use language to draw pictures.

    This is a collection of Fitzgerald s short stories seperated into 3 categories Flappers, fantasies, and some other stuff.Having only read The Great Gatsby before, I was drawn to Fitzgerald and his Flapper stories He practically created the craze, and lived it himself I d read a book about Flappers not long ago Flapper A Madcap Story of Sex Style Celebrity and the Women Who Made America Modern , and

    In the past 3 years, I ve been drawn to reading and of F Scott Fitzgerald s work.Like many other teenagers, I read The Great Gatsby in high school and loved it At the time, I remember my teacher telling us that much of Fitzgerald s other work was not as highly regarded, and that he was driven to produce short stories et al to fund his lifestyle.I was surprised, then, at how impressed I was with his last,

    As much as I wanted to, I could not bring myself to like most of the stories in this book Fitzgerald has a way with turns of phrases and can set a story better than most, but I cannot get over the fact that all he writes about is, money, alcohol, parties and women There were a couple of stories that stood out The Curious Case of Benjamin Button the reason I read the collection and O Russet Witch It is interesting to

    A mix of some very good and some kind of strange work from the pen of F Scott The latter half of this collection presents some odd selections which seem to hail, primarily, from his earlier years at Princeton There are two one act plays and a couple of shorts that are concerned with the phrasing than the plot, and some of them work better than others While I disliked Mr Icky and didn t appreciate any of its strange humour,

    An excellent sampler of Fitzgerald s early work, containing all of Tales of the Jazz Age and Flappers and Philosophers. Quite uneven, with some of Fitzgerald s best work A Diamond As Big As The Ritz, Bernice Bobs Her Hair, etc side by side with some really skippable stuff Mr Icky and Tarquin of Cheapside notably All in all, Jazz Age Stories is not nearly as good as This Side of Paradise or The Great Gat

    These short stories possess awfully self absorbed and pretentious characters Interestingly enough, this was my first encounter with Fitzgerald Might be my last, though I m aware that Great Gatsby is supposedly his magnum opus The stories are entertaining but of abysmal personnel The Four Fists is decent and moralistic Towards the end of the collection, I found myself racing to the finish Never a good sign.His writing is superb It s just the c

    Uneven collection A couple of these stories are really bad I had always heard that Fitzgerald thought of short stories as a way to make money, and poured his art into his novels Or something like that That said, some of these are amazing and worth reading The Diamond as Big as the Ritz is a weird, weird story, almost science fiction May Day is catastrophically depressing especially if you re an illustrator, ha , but beautifully written I can t remembe
