The Beautiful and Damned, Francis Scott Fitzgerald
Francis Scott Fitzgerald

The Beautiful and Damned

The Beautiful and Damned tells the story of Anthony Patch, a 1910s socialite and presumptive heir to a tycoon's fortune, his relationship with his wife, Gloria, his service in the army, and his alcoholism.

Toward the end of the novel, Fitzgerald sums up his own plot somewhat himself, even referencing his own first novel, when a financially successful writer friend of Anthony's tells him: “You know these new novels make me tired. My God! Everywhere I go some silly girl asks me if I've read This Side of Paradise. Are our girls really like that? If it's true to life, which I don't believe, the next generation is going to the dogs. I'm sick of all this shoddy realism. I think there's a place for the romanticist in literature.”

Murderous! Oh, God! one minute it's my world, and the next I'm the world's fool. To-day it's my world and everything's easy, easy. Even Nothing is easy!"
