The Love of the Last Tycoon,
edited by the preeminent Fitzgerald scholar Matthew J. Bruccoli, is a restoration of the author's phrases, words, and images that were excised from the 1940 edition, giving new luster to an unfinished literary masterpiece. It is the story of the young Hollywood mogul Monroe Stahr, who was inspired by the life of boy-genius Irving Thalberg, and is an exposé of the studio system in its heyday. The Love of the Last Tycoon
is now available for the first time in paperback.
“Renowned Fitzgerald scholar Bruccoli has reassembled the…existing episodes according to Fitzgerald’s intentions. A significant glimpse into the creative faculties of one of literature’s preeminent minds. Essential….” –Library Journal
