Tender is the night, Paperback Book


Fitzgerald's final completed novel, Tender is the Night was a true labour of love inspired by the author's own life.

American psychiatrist Dick Diver and his wife Nicole are glamorous socialites, enjoying sparkling lives amidst a flurry of decadent associates in dazzling 1920s France.

But Dick has a weakness, Nicole has a secret, and the entrance of a youthful actress catalyses the unravelling of relationships and tarnishes life under the Riviera sun.

Inspired by the darkness in the author's own life and marriage, Tender is the Night is at once a vivid imagining of a unique era, and a delicately crafted and poignant study of the selfishness that simmers within us all.
