     Anthony Patch, Harvard-educated, aspiring aesthete, falls in love and marries Gloria Gilbert, a stunning, beautiful woman. On the outside they look like the golden couple—rich, beautiful, young, and in love. However, beneath the surface, the marriage is not at all what it seems. Anthony and Gloria must wait to inherit Anthony's grandfather’s fortune. And wait they do, while drinking, and jetsetting to Europe and back to the states. The Beautiful and the Damned is a timeless story about society, money, and the deterioration of a marriage.
F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896. He attended Princeton University, joined the United States Army during World War I, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. That same year he married Zelda Sayre and for the next decade the couple lived in New York, Paris, and on the Riviera. Fitzgerald's masterpieces include The Beautiful and the Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. He died at the age of forty-four while working on The Last Tycoon. Fitzgerald's fiction has secured his reputation as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.
