Overview

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s poignant final work is now available in a beautifully designed collector’s edition.

Fitzgerald’s final novel portrays the glittering excess of 1930s Hollywood. This edition, authorized by the Fizgerald estate, is a careful restoration of the author’s phrases, words, and images that were excised from the 1940 publication, giving new luster to Fitzgerald’s last work.

A tragic story of the young Hollywood mogul Monroe Stahr, a character who was inspired by the life of movie producer Irving Thalberg, The Last Tycoon is a sharply observed and bittersweet exposé of the film industry in its heyday.
