F. Scott Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940)
Oh, I dearly love this man, this writer. I've spent a fair bit of my life reading his books, reading about him, and reading about his wife, Zelda. Whatever may be told about him, the important thing to me is that at least one of his books was a sublime work of genius. I don't know if there has been anything written to top The Great Gatsby. I've read it several times, and each reading shows me something new. How very few people in the history of the world have done one perfect thing. Well, Mr. F. did with this book. Here is quite an interesting site.
