The magnificent attitude of not giving a damn ... and to seek the moment's happiness as fervently and persistently as possible.

It's New York during the Jazz Age. Anthony and Gloria Patch are a rich and beautiful couple who drink and dance away their days in glorious decadence as they wait for an inheritance to materialize. Gloria has always relied on her beauty to get her everything she wants (including a wealthy husband), while Anthony is Harvard-educated with a yen for the finer things of life. Blinded by the notion of future wealth, they push the boat out further and further until they find themselves far from shore and baling fast.

This is a brilliant study of a marriage that begins to reel under the effects of too much booze as the doomed couple fall into indolence and out of love. First published in 1922, The Beautiful and Damned drew heavily on F. Scott Fitzgerald's own life and helped established his reputation as one of the great American novelists.

ABOUT THE SERIES: Arcturus Essential Fitzgerald presents a selection of F. Scott Fitzgerald's most acclaimed fiction with striking contemporary cover-designs. These unique paperback editions make wonderful collectibles which celebrate one of important voices of the American Jazz Age.
