Last Tycoon – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Opis towaru

These sumptuous new hardback editions mark the 70th anniversary of Fitzgerald’s death.

Their eyes ‚met and tangled. For an instant they made love as no one ever dares to do after. Their glance was slower than an embrace, more urgent than a call’.

A novel of the glittering decadence of Hollywood in its heyday, this was Fitzgerald’s last work and he died without completing it. The novel’s tragic tycoon hero is Stahr. Caught in the crossfire of his own effortless cynicism and his silent, secret vulnerability, Stahr inhabits a world dominated by business, alcohol and promiscuity. If there is a moral or social necessity to film-making in this West Coast never-never land, Stahr does not always believe in it. If there is love he does not always see it. The sharpness of Fitzgerald’s prose, the steely simplicity of his style, give a cutting edge to this study of Hollywood in the thirties, from which Fitzgerald draws a painfully bitter-sweet love affair and bids his own poignant farewell to the Great American Dream

Last Tycoon – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Opis towaru

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘They were smiling at each other as if this was the beginning of the world.’

The lights of Hollywood do little to distract Cecelia as she watches Monroe Stahr, wunderkind studio executive and object of her desire, descend into a reckless and ardent love affair with an auspicious starlet – an affair that threatens to destroy his reign as the Silver Screen’s golden boy. In this tragic tale Fitzgerald exposes the corruption, sex and towering ambition at the dark heart of 1930s Hollywood.

Unfinished at the time of his death, F. Scott Fitzgerald bids his own poignant farewell to the themes that inspired ‘The Great Gatsby’, ‘Tender is the Night’ and ‘The Beautiful and Damned’.
