Club Book with Dave Page

If you think you know F. Scott Fitzgerald, this book will come as a delightfully intimate surprise. Fitzgerald scholar Dave Page has meticulously scoured the letters, scrapbooks, and diaries of the great American novelist, offering a fresh look at the young writer and his St. Paul friends and neighbors. Readers will learn about--and recognize--the sources for the characters and the places he wrote about--as well as understand why St. Paul so inspired him.
