“First you take a drink,” F. Scott Fitzgerald once noted, “then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.” Fitzgerald wrote alcohol into almost every one of his stories. On Booze gathers debutantes and dandies, rowdy jazz musicians, lost children and ragtime riff-raff into a newly compiled collection taken from The Crack-Up, and other works never before published by New Directions. On Booze portrays “The Jazz Age” as Fitzgerald experienced it: roaring, rambunctious, and lush — with quite a hangover.
A collection of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s best drinking stories makes this the most intoxicating New Directions Pearl yet!

I learned more about the brilliance and psychology of Fitzgerald, F. Scott from this book than any of the Wikipedia articles found on the internet combined! Students look no further, read this today!
