Product description

An account of the turbulent romance of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sheilah Graham, told by Graham's son. In July 1937, Scott Fitzgerald was broken in spirit, desperate for money and headed for Hollywood for work as a screenwriter - his one last shot at staying sober and re-establishing himself as a writer. There he met the lovely young Sheilah Graham, a fledgling columnist who had transformed herself from a Jewish orphan from London's East End to a British aristocrat, determined to eradicate all traces of her squalid youth. Scott was fascinated by the gutsy Graham, she instinctively understood him and his demons and, together, they sought refuge from the glittering ferment of late 1930s Hollywood among such friends as Robert Benchley, Dorothy Parker and Ogden Nash.
