LOVE OF THE LAST TYCOON Book Excerpt:

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Love of the Last Tycoon: a Western + Fitzgerald's Notes for The Last Tycoon - The Original 1941 Edition" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Love of The Last Tycoon is an unfinished novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, compiled and published posthumously. The notes for the novel were initially collected and edited by the literary critic Edmund Wilson, who was a close friend of Fitzgerald, and the unfinished novel was published in 1941 as The Last Tycoon, though there is now critical agreement that Fitzgerald intended The Love of the Last Tycoon to be the book's title.Inspired by the life of film producer Irving Thalberg, on whom protagonist Monroe Stahr is based, the story follows Stahr's rise to power in Hollywood, and his conflicts with rival Pat Brady, a character based on studio head Louis B. Mayer. Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896 - 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

Tender Is the Night and the Last Tycoon Book Excerpt:

With an Introduction and Notes by Henry Claridge, Senior Lecturer, School of English, University of Kent at Canterbury. Tender is the Night is a story set in the hedonistic high society of Europe during the 'Roaring Twenties'. A wealthy schizophrenic, Nicole Warren, falls in love with Dick Diver - her psychiatrist. The resulting saga of the Divers' troubled marriage, and their circle of friends, includes a cast of aristocratic and beautiful people, unhappy love affairs, a duel, incest, and the problems inherent in the possession of great wealth. Despite cataloguing a maelstrom of interpersonal conflict, Tender is the Night has a poignancy and warmth that springs from the quality of Fitzgerald's writing and the tragic personal experiences on which the novel is based. Six years separate Tender is the Night and The Last Tycoon, the novel Fitzgerald left unfinished at his death in December 1940. Fitzgerald lived in Hollywood more or less continuously from July 1937 until his death, and a novel about the film industry at the height of 'the studio system' centred on the working life of a top producer was begun in 1939. Even in its incomplete state The Last Tycoon remains the greatest American novel about Hollywood and contains some of Fitzgerald's most brilliant writing.

The Last Tycoon The Vegetable Book Excerpt:

F.S. Fitzgerald was an American writer, whose works illustrate the Jazz Age. The Last Tycoon is a magnificent story of doomed love set against the extravagance of America's booming film industry. The studio lot looks like 'thirty acres of fairyland' the night that a mysterious woman stands and smiles at Monroe Stahr, the last of the great Hollywood princes. Enchanted by one another, they begin a passionate but hopeless love affair. The romance unfolds, frame by frame, watched by Cecilia, a thoroughly modern girl who has taken her lessons in sentiment and cynicism from all the movies she has seen. The play The Vegetable was a satirical attack on the presidency of Warren Harding. An ordinary, incompetent man, taunted for his lack of ambition by his family, realises his dream of ruling the United States of America.

Love of the Last Tycoon The Crack Up Book Excerpt:

The Love of the Last Tycoon was originally published in 1941 as The Last Tycoon. The novel was inspired by the life of film producer Irving Thalberg, on whom its rotagonist Monroe Stahr was based. The story follows Stahr's rise to power in Hollywood, and his conflicts with rival Pat Brady, a fictionalised version of Louis B. Mayer. A 1976 film version was adapted for the screen by Harold Pinter, starring Robert De Niro as Monroe Stahr. The New York Times called the book 'the best piece of creative writing that we have about one phase of American life - Hollywood and the movies.' Fitgerald's essay The Crack-up, was one of three originally published in Esquire and put together in a book under that title by Edmund Wilson, after Fitzgerald's death. It tells the story of the author's sudden descent at the age of thirty-nine from a life of success and glamour to one of emptiness and despair, and his determined recovery.

Conversations with F Scott Fitzgerald Book Excerpt:

Literary Criticism -- Biography --> Conversations with F. Scott Fitzgerald assembles over thirty interviews with one of America's greatest novelists, the author of The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night. Although most of these are not standard interviews in the modern sense, the quotes from Fitzgerald and the contemporary journalistic reaction to him reveal much about his writing techniques, artistic wisdom, and life. Editors Matthew J. Bruccoli, the foremost Fitzgerald scholar, and Judith S. Baughman have collected the most usable and articulate pieces on Fitzgerald, including a three-part 1922 interview conducted for the St. Paul Daily News. Fitzgerald (1896-1940) died before the authorial interview became a literary subgenre after World War II. Although Fitzgerald enjoyed his celebrity, as is clear in these pieces, he had a poor sense of public relations and provided interviewers with opportunities to trivialize him. As a result, Fitzgerald was often treated condescendingly in the press. Seven of his interviews-five printed before 1924-have flapper in their headlines. In the Jazz Age-a term Fitzgerald coined-he was regarded as a spokesman for rebellious youth, as a playboy, as an authority on sex and marriage, as an expert on Prohibition, and as an immensely popular writer for his work published in the Saturday Evening Post. Yet his literary ambitions were sizable and his impact on American fiction immeasurable. Matthew J. Bruccoli is Jefferies Professor of English at the University of South Carolina. He has written or edited thirty volumes on Fitzgerald, including the standard biography, Some Sort of Epic Grandeur: The Life of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Judith S. Baughman, who works in the department of English at the University of South Carolina, has written the F. Scott Fitzgerald volume in the Gale Study Guides series and has edited American Decades: 1920-1929.

Hollywood V Hard Core Book Excerpt:

The rate of women entering prison has increased nearly 400 percent since 1980, with African American women constituting the largest percentage of this population. However, despite their extremely disproportional representation in correctional institutions, little attention has been paid to their experiences within the criminal justice system. Inner Lives provides readers the rare opportunity to intimately connect with African American women prisoners. By presenting the women's stories in their own voices, Paula C. Johnson captures the reality of those who are in the system, and those who are working to help them. Johnson offers a nuanced and compelling portrait of this fastest-growing prison population by blending legal history, ethnography, sociology, and criminology. These striking and vivid narratives are accompanied by equally compelling arguments by Johnson on how to reform our nation's laws and social policies, in order to eradicate existing inequalities. Her thorough and insightful analysis of the historical and legal background of contemporary criminal law doctrine, sentencing theories, and correctional policies sets the stage for understanding the current system.

The Last of the Novelists Book Excerpt:

Re-creating the author’s intention from the manuscripts, this study shows that Fitzgerald regarded none of his material as final but, rather, as material toward a novel quite possibly about the Ameri­can Dream—a respectful study of the American business hero. Mr. Bruccoli’s transcription and anal­yses of the manuscripts and notes for the unfinished novel serve two related purposes: they enable us to gauge the state of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s work-in-progress at the time of his death and thereby to reassess this work properly. Examination of Fitzgerald’s drafts re­veal that he regarded none of this mate­rial as finished. There are no final drafts—only latest working drafts. After Chapter One there are no chapters, and even this is marked for rewrite. And Fitzgerald’s undated last outline pro­vides only topics or ideas for the thir­teen unwritten episodes. The Last Tycoon has always been read as a Hollywood novel—a novel about the movies. It is far from certain that the title was final, but it is clear that Fitzgerald conceived Monroe Stahr as a “tycoon.” Fitzgerald’s tentative title “The Love of the Last Tycoon: A West­ern” is instructive: it connects Stahr with all the other poor boys who went West to seek their fortunes. “I am the last of the novelists for a long time now,” Fitzgerald wrote in a note for The Last Tycoon. His statement does not refer to technique or to form, Mr. Bruccoli claims; it can be under­stood only in terms of theme and char­acter. Stahr exemplifies Fitzgerald’s be­lief in the American Dream—decency, honor, courage, responsibility, and the possibilities of the American life—and Fitzgerald regarded himself as the last of the American novelists writing on this great theme.

F Scott Fitzgerald s The Last Tycoon Book Excerpt:

1930s. The Golden Age of Hollywood. F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece about the movie industry. The tragedy of a man obsessed. Monroe Stahr (loosely based on legendary producer Irving Thalberg) is in a fight with Pat Brady (loosely based on movie mogul Louis B. Mayer) over artistic control of his movies. The "Boy Wonder" is only 36 and the most celebrated producer in Hollywood, but already the corporate men are ready to throw him over if he doesn't turn a profit. In a world where money is God, art is seldom discussed. When Stahr decides to make his masterpiece, the "Shakespeare Project," as a tribute to his dead wife, knowing full well it will lose money, Brady and the Money Men try to bring him down. They stand a good chance. Stahr has a bad heart from a childhood illness. His doctor tells him if he doesn't slow down, he'll be "dead in six months." But Stahr is a man obsessed—with movies, with illusion, with memories of his dead wife, with a mysterious, enigmatic woman (Kathleen Moore) whom he met on the back lot after an earthquake nearly destroyed his studio. It's been years since he's cared about another woman. He pursues her, like his precious "Project," without regard to consequences. All around him are people who love and want to protect him—especially Cecelia Brady (Pat Brady's daughter), who takes us on a journey of love into the literal and metaphorical heart of a great man.
