Tender is the Night: With the Introductory Essay 'The Jazz Age Literature of the Lost Generation' (Read & Co. Classics Edition) (Paperback)
Lyrical, tragic, and hauntingly beautiful, Tender is the Night absorbs F. Scott Fitzgerald's personal struggles and mirrors the incredible writer's fractured marriage.
Dick Diver is a talented, successful young psychiatrist. He lives with his wife and patient, Nicole, on the French Riviera. Set in the glamour and disillusionment of the Jazz Age, this novel follows the Divers as a beautiful actress enters their lives and highlights the dark delicacy of their marriage. Heavily influenced by Fitzgerald's own relationship, the Divers' romantic charade begins to crumble as Dick descends into alcoholism and Nicole struggles with her mental health.
From one of the greatest American novelists of the Jazz Age, Tender is the Night was F. Scott Fitzgerald's final novel. First published in 1934, this poetic masterpiece captures the hope, idealism, and corruption of the Roaring 20s.
