I'd Die for You: And Other Lost Stories Hardback
**THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER** I'd Die for You is a collection of the last remaining unpublished short stories by F.
Scott Fitzgerald, iconic author of The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night.
All eighteen short fictions collected here were lost in one sense or another: physically lost, coming to light only recently; lost in the turbulence of Fitzgerald's later life; lost to readers because his editors sometimes did not understand what he was trying to write.
These fascinating stories offer a new insight into the arc of Fitzgerald's career, and demonstrate his stylistic agility and imaginative power as a writer at the forefront of Modern literature. 'There are ostensibly bleak currents running through these stories ...but what really makes an impression is the humour ...In the period he was writing these stories he talked of his desire to open up a "new vein" in his writing. "He was happy when he died," [the editor Anne Margaret] Daniel notes, and working hard - a somewhat shock revelation.
It's a tantalising thought' Independent
