Description

Flappers and Philosophers marked F. Scott Fitzgerald's entry into the realm of the short story, in which he adroitly proved himself "a master of the mechanism of short-story technique" (Boston Transcript). Several of his most well-known tales are represented in this classic collection of eight, including "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" and "Head and Shoulders," with their particularly O. Henry–like twists; the poignant "Benediction" and "The Cut-Glass Bowl"; and "The Offshore Pirate," the octet's opening and "most romantic story" (New York Times Book Review).


Filtered through Fitzgerald's remarkable intensity of vision and fed by his matchless imagination, these tales shimmer with the exuberance of youth during the Jazz Age. This sublime short-story collection plumbs the depths of human feeling with a perspicacity that is quintessential Fitzgerald.
