Fitzgerald's fourth and final novel, the author considered this to be his best work (Better than Gatsby? What?). Initially serialized in four installments in early 1934, there now exist two published versions of the work. Try to aim, if you can, for the earlier version (the 1934) version, using flashbacks. Perhaps the discussion would be rich using the 1948 version, too, for those who prefer a more chronological rendering. We have had frustrated readers when we've lacked chronological story telling in the past. So, I guess, make your own choice. :)
This is a bleak book, covering a dark era of the author's life. The work covers the rise and fall of Dick Diver, a prominent young psychoanalyst and his wife (and also patient), Nicole.
Hi I am looking for some intellectual stimulation. Love reading.
