F. Scott Fitzgerald - Tender Is The Night (2nd Hand Paperback)
Tender Is the Night is the fourth and final novel completed by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. The work was first serialized in Scribner's Magazine between January and April 1934 in four issues. The title is taken from the poem "Ode to a Nightingale" by John Keats.
It is the French Riviera in the 1920s. Nicole and Dick Diver are a wealthy, elegant, magnetic couple. A coterie of admirers are drawn to them, none more so than the blooming young starlet Rosemary Hoyt. When Rosemary falls for Dick, the Diver's calculated perfection begins to crack.
As dark truths emerge, Fitzgerald shows both the disintegration of a marriage and the failure of idealism. Tender is the Night is as sad as it is beautiful.
A profound study of the romantic concept of character, Tender Is the Night is lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative.

" . . . It is a work of profound beauty and pain about the resilience of the human spirit. If you're feeling the world is too glib, I feel this is a great antidote."
"Tender Is the Night left me incredibly satisfied and yearning at the same time. I wish Scott Fitzgerald had developed Nicole’s character more. Or Rosemary’s. But with Dick himself being the main focus and how his love and longing, pain and loneliness affect his life and personality, they were more of a catalyst for him than actual characters in the novel." - Goodreads Reviews.
"Fitzgerald really is an outstanding writer, one of my favourite in fact! 'Tender is The Night' is a poignant and wonderful novel, both entertaining and melancholy." - The Bookseller.
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and short-story writer. He was best known for his novels depicting the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age - a term which he popularised.
