F. Scott Fitzgerald bibliography
Brand new Book. This Side of Paradise gave Fitzgerald the early success that defined and haunted him for the rest of his career. Tales of the Jazz Age , his second collection of stories, includes the novella "May Day," featuring interlocking tales of debutantes, soldiers, and socialists brought together in the uncertain aftermath of World War I, and "A Diamond as Big as the Ritz," a fable in which the excesses of the Jazz Age take the hallucinatory form of a palace of unfathomable opulence hidden deep in the Montana Rockies.

Her emotional health remained fragile for the rest of her life. In , she was hospitalized in Baltimore, Maryland, and Scott rented the "La Paix" estate in the suburb of Towson to work on his book, which had become the story of the rise and fall of Dick Diver, a promising young psychiatrist and his wife, Nicole, who is also one of his patients.

Hollywood years Although he reportedly found movie work degrading, Fitzgerald was once again in dire financial straits, so he spent the second half of the s in Hollywood, working on commercial short stories, scripts for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and his fifth and final novel, The Love of The Last Tycoon , which is often published under the shortened title The Last Tycoon, based on the life of film executive Irving Thalberg.
He and Zelda became estranged; she continued living in mental institutions on the east coast, while he lived with his lover Sheilah Graham, a movie columnist, in Hollywood. From until his death, Fitzgerald mocked himself as a Hollywood hack through the character of Pat Hobby in a sequence of 17 short stories later collected as " The Pat Hobby Stories. This consequently left him in poor health by the late s. According to Zelda Fitzgerald's biographer Nancy Milford, Scott Fitzgerald at various times also claimed that he had contracted tuberculosis but she states plainly that this was usually a pretext to cover his drinking problems.
However, Milford also reports that Scott's biographer Arthur Mizener said that Scott did suffer a mild attack of tuberculosis in and that in Fitzgerald had "what proved to be a tubercular hemorrhage". Given the extent of Scott's alcoholism, however, it is equally likely that the hemorrhage might have been caused by bleeding from oesophageal varices- these are in effect, varicose veins in the oesophagus that result from dilated veins in the walls of the lower part of the oesophagus and sometimes the upper part of the stomach, usually because of hypertension caused by advanced liver disease.
Fitzgerald suffered two heart attacks in late After the first he was ordered by his doctor to avoid strenuous exertion and to obtain a first floor apartment. As Sheilah Graham, his lover at the time, had an apartment on the first floor, he moved in with her. On the night of December 20, he had his second heart attack; but since the doctor was to come to his house the following day, he and Sheilah went home. On December 21, , F.
Scott Fitzgerald collapsed while clutching the mantlepiece in Sheilah Graham's apartment and died at the age of His funeral was attended by very few people. Among the attendants was Dorothy Parker, who reportedly cried and murmured, "the poor son of a bitch," a line from Jay Gatsby's funeral in Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.
Zelda died in a fire at the Highland mental institution in Asheville, North Carolina, in His notes for the novel were edited by his friend Edmund Wilson and published in as The Last Tycoon. However, there is now critical agreement that Fitzgerald intended the title of the book to be The Love of the Last Tycoon, as is reflected in a new edition of the book, edited by Fitzgerald scholar Matthew Bruccoli of the University of South Carolina.
