Collins Classics: Tender Is The Night Paperback
Part of the Collins Classics series
From Collins Classics and the author of 'The Great Gatsby' a marriage unravels in this autobiographical tale. 'Sometimes it is harder to deprive oneself of a pain than of a pleasure.' Set on the French Riviera in the 1920s, American Dick Diver and his wife Nicole are the epitome of chic, living a glamorous lifestyle and entertaining friends at their villa.
Young film star Rosemary Hoyt arrives in France and becomes entranced by the couple.
It is not long before she is attracted to the enigmatic Dick, but he and his wife hold dark secrets and as their marriage becomes more fractured, Fitzgerald laments the failure of idealism and the carefully constructed trappings of high society in the Roaring Twenties.

Review by Miguelnunonave
Not so great a story as Gatsby, though still a great exercise of style. Emotionally intense, with typically flawed Fitzgeraldian characters and a superb depiction of mental illness.
