What I liked: It was a concentrated biography with lots of pictures. I love Jazz Age style.
What I didn’t like: In-text citations. Is this a term paper or something?
What I learned: All about Scott Fitzgerald’s feelings of failure, Zelda’s breakdown and their crazy antics. (And that Esquire paid him only $250 per story in the 1930s, when the Saturday Evening Post had paid him as much as $4,000 before.)
