About the book:

Zelda Sayre married F.Scott Fitzgerald in 1920 and they began to live like characters in his books. This collection of her writings demonstrates that she was a notable author herself, as well as a profound influence on Scott's work. Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald's writings can be read now as autobiography, as social history, or as literature. The expression of a complex romantic sensibility, her prose is idiosyncratic and highly imaginative, and ranges from her only complete novel, "Save Me the Waltz" (written in counterpoint to her husband's "Tender is the Night"); her "farce fantasy", "Scandalabra"; and her semi-autobiographical stories and articles, now deservedly under her own byline, which she occasionally had to share with Scott, since his name sold more magazines. There is also a revealing selection of letters to Scott, ranging from their courtship to the final years of her confinement in a sanatorium. The book has an introduction by the novelist Mary Gordon, and is edited and annotated by the Fitzgerald scholar, Matthew J. Bruccoli.
