Om forfatteren

Born in 1896, Fitzgerald was considered a member of the 'Lost Generation', along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself - and The Great Gatsby is often considered to be 'the great American novel'. In 1937, Fitzgerald moved to Hollywood to try and write himself out of debt - while there he worked on now-forgotten movies such as A Yank at Oxford. It is this insider knowledge that Fitzgerald brings to his final novel THE LAST TYCOON.
