So handsome and talented! If only he hadn't left us so prematurely.
Awesome writer and fast living life.
Happy birthday, Scott 🌌 Yesterday I defended "our" master's thesis on Gatsby and 💎 A double celebration 🥂
As a short story writer he was peerless, as good as Hemingway certainly. The Great Gatsby is his masterpiece, less than one hundred pages, yet remarkable in its sweep of early 20th century history and its murky beginnings hidden from view but there, like an elephant in the villas of the wealthy.
In spite of his "shortcomings"... he has given me magic for many decades. Would I like to have known him? Probably not. I love his writing. That's what matters to me. Thanks, Mr. Fitzgerald.

If you're free tomorrow (Wed, July 26) and are looking for something to engage your brain, we're teaming up with the Hemingway Society for a little colloquium on little magazines---an opportunity to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first appearance of the IN OUR TIME vignettes in The Little Review's EXILES issues. We have three great scholars who, far from little, are giants in their field talking about modernism, the avant-garde, the literary and popular marketplace, and "pure literature."
