In this, Scott Fitzgerald's second novel, loosely based on his tortured life with Zelda, we follow the wild, quarrelsome and pleasure-seeking careers of Anthony and Gloria Patch from success and wealth through to degradation and despair. She was dazzling, and the glow of her hair and cheeks made her the most living person he had ever seen; he was debonair and 'gracefully lazy'. Together they were locked in a headlong rush towards destruction and love, of a kind.
