Library Journal Review

When this volume debuted in 1974, LJ's reviewer found it "more powerful than any [work] on the Fitzgeralds. A most interesting and fascinating book." Arranged by leading FSF scholar Bruccoli, along with the Fitzgeralds' daughter, Scottie Fitzgerald Smith, and American Heritage editor Joan P. Kerr, this collection presents the couple's life together and apart through pictures, letters, and newspaper clippings in scrapbook fashion. The beginning of each section also features a chronology of events, such as the publications of Scott's stories and their journeys abroad. The result is very personal and very effective and makes the perfect companion to Bruccoli's top Fitzgerald biography, Some Sort of Epic Grandeur. Essential. (c) Copyright 2010.
