Contents Introduction / Hortense Calisher -- Anthony Patch -- Portrait of a Siren -- The Connoisseur of Kisses -- The Radiant Hour -- Symposium -- The Broken Lute -- A Matter of Civilization -- A Matter of Aesthetics -- No Matter!
Summary Fitzgerald's second novel, a devastating portrait of the excesses of the Jazz Age, is a largely autobiographical depiction of a glamorous, reckless Manhattan couple and their spectacular spiral into tragedy. Published on the heels of This Side of Paradise, the story of the Harvard-educated aesthete Anthony Patch and his willful wife, Gloria, is propelled by Fitzgerald's intense romantic imagination and demonstrates an increased technical and emotional maturity. The Beautiful and Damned is at once a gripping morality tale, a rueful meditation on love, marriage, and money, and an acute social document
