I know I'm not a regular fellow, yet I loathe anybody else that isn't' On the eve of a dance at the Greenwich County Club, Amory Blaine's life reaches its peak. He's at Princeton. He's handsome. He looks good in a dinner jacket. And, most importantly, a beautiful girl loves him. But then the night spirals quickly out of control. And as the years roll on, Amory is lost in a sea of change. After serving in France during the Second World War, he returns to America cynical and bored. Never quite able to fit in, he represents a generation of young people from the 1920s who have grown up to find all the wars are fought, all the gods are dead and all faith in man is shaken.Hide synopsis
