A beautiful book Feb 28, 2008
What a pleasure to read a book from an employee without an axe to grind! Ms. Ring has written a lovely, respectful remembrance of her work with F. Scott Fitzgerald. While addressing his alcoholism, the author portrays Mr. Fitzgerald as a kind and thoughtful friend and employer. She also gives us a view or his creative process as he writes his final classic, "The Last Tycoon." Sheila Graham, Zelda and Scottie Fitzgerald are all presented in an honest but sympathetic light. Ms. Ring is, herself, a talented writer with a fluid, though straightforward, style.
