Title: Tender Is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre: Fiction – General
Year of Publication: 1934
Approximate Page Count: 192 pages
Summary: Set on the French Riviera in the 1920s, American Dick Diver and his wife Nicole are the epitome of chic, living a glamorous lifestyle and entertaining friends at their villa. Young film star Rosemary Hoyt arrives in France and becomes entranced by the couple. It is not long before she is attracted to the enigmatic Dick, but he and his wife hold dark secrets. As their marriage becomes more fractured, Fitzgerald laments the failure of idealism and the carefully constructed trappings of high society in the Roaring Twenties.

    I was one of the two people who suggested this book for discussion. Back in college I was particularly impressed with Fitzgerald's use of language. Now, reading "Tender is the Night", I was less impressed overall though there were some great passages scattered throughout the book. I liked it but not as much as I thought I would. I liked it more after last nights discussion. All in all . . . a worthwhile read.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
