Great Scott

2009 June 8

I just read a fascinating article about Frances Kroll Ring, the woman who worked as F. Scott Fitzgerald’s typist in the final year of his life, as he was working on his last book, The Last Tycoon. The Great Gatsby has long been a sentimental favorite of mine, and Fitzgerald a standby storyteller when I’m in the mood for a witty classic. It’s interesting, and poignant, to read about his struggle to forge a literary comeback. He’s such a tragic figure–pretty sad, really.
