F. Scott Fitzgerald began composing Tender Is the Night in the summer of 1925, but he struggled with the novel and reworked it intensively over the next nine years. A study of the disintegration of a talented young American psychiatrist, set among wealthy American expatriates living in Europe after the First World War, the novel, finally published in 1934, is now considered one of his major works. Fitzgerald saved a great many of his working materials - notes, diagrams, holographs, typescripts, proofs and correspondence - making it possible to reconstruct in detail the passage of Tender Is the Night from manuscript to print. The Cambridge edition follows the order of the first edition; it includes a history of composition, an analysis of Fitzgerald's plan for republication and an explanation of the chronology of the narrative. The edition also contains full historical annotations, facsimiles of surviving drafts and a record of emendations.

the world that once was for some
This book tells the story of American psychologist Dick Diver and his wife, the wealthy but psychologically unstable Nicole. The setting is the small French coastal town of Tarmes, between the late 1920's and the early 1930's. The book portrays a rypical Fitzgerald fictional universe: wealthy, idle, sophisticated, and in many ways "troubled". The book also deals with the effect wealthy Americans had on Europe culture. If you like tales of the roaring 20's, I think you will like this book

This semi-autobiographical novel describes the struggles of Dick and Nicole Diver as they strive to keep their marriage together despite Nicole's increasingly devastating mental disorder. It's probably the most difficult to understand of Fitzgerald's works, but it is also one of his masterpieces. If you are interested in the "Lost Generation" writers, the Jazz Age, or mental disorders/their effects, you will probably love this book.
