I’d Die for You by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I’d Die for You is a collection of the last remaining unpublished short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, iconic author of The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night.

All eighteen short fictions collected here were lost in one sense or another: physically lost, coming to light only recently; lost in the turbulence of Fitzgerald’s later life; lost to readers because his editors sometimes did not understand what he was trying to write.  These fascinating stories offer a new insight into the arc of Fitzgerald’s career, and demonstrate his stylistic agility and imaginative power as a writer at the forefront of Modern literature.

Peer & Press Reviews

I’d Die for You stands apart by shining a light on Fitzgerald’s darker, more autobiographical side… a necessary and welcome addition to his oeuvre…  Its value derives largely from the different note struck by these stories, the ways in which they diverge from the work that Fitzgerald is often known for.  The collection demonstrates his tremendous range, macabre wit, and above all, his risk-taking, most notably in the emotional core of the stories and the unflinching reality from which they derive.

Zaina Arafat, Vice magazine

There are ostensibly bleak currents running through these stories… but what really makes an impression is the humour…  In the period he was writing these stories he talked of his desire to open up a “new vein” in his writing.  “He was happy when he died,” [the editor Anne Margaret] Daniel notes, and working hard – a somewhat shock revelation.  It’s a tantalising thought.

Independent

A treasure trove for Fitzgerald enthusiasts, scholars, and aspiring writers… an invaluable glimpse into a brilliant but struggling writer’s process.

Heller McAlpin, NPR
