The Beautiful and the Damned
The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
4 of 5 stars
Young, educated Anthony Patch marries beautiful society girl Gloria Gilbert, and together they live from one party to the next as they await the inheritance they expect to receive from Anthony’s grandfather.
Full review coming in September for Classics Retold project!
Overall: Taking pages from his own life and downfall, Fitzgerald’s chronicles of the doomed protagonist are still powerful almost a century later.
