Product Description
 
The French Riviera in the 1920s is 'discovered' by Dick and Nicole Diver, who turn it into the playground of the rich and glamorous. Among their circle is Rosemary Hoyt, a film star, who is instantly attracted to them, but understands little of the dark secrets and corruption that haunt their marriage. As Dick draws closer to Rosemary, he fractures the delicate structure of his marriage and sets both Nicole and himself on to a dangerous path. In this exquisite, lyrical novel, Fitzgerald poured much of the essence of his own life, while depicting the age of materialism, shattered idealism and broken dreams.The French Riviera in the 1920s is 'discovered' by Dick and Nicole Diver, who turn it into the playground of the rich and glamorous.

Fitzgerald followed with The Beautiful and the Damned in 1922, The Great Gatsby in 1925 and Tender is the Night in 1934. He was working on The Last Tycoon (1941) when he died, in Hollywood, in 1940.
