WEST OF SUNSET

STEWART O'NAN    Book Number: 84529    Product format: Paperback

A dazzling, intimate novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Hollywood years. In 1937, Fitzgerald was a troubled, uncertain man whose literary success was long behind him. In poor health, with his wife consigned to a mental asylum and his finances in ruin, he struggled to make a new start as a screenwriter in Hollywood. With flashbacks to key moments from his past, the story follows him as he arrives at the MGM lot, falls in love with the brassy gossip columnist Sheilah Graham, begins work on The Last Tycoon, and tries to maintain a semblance of family life with the absent Zelda and their daughter, Scottie. T. C. Boyle said of this, "An achingly nuanced love story and one of the best biographical novels to come along in years." A novel of freefall and change which reimagines the last three troubled years of the great American writers life. 289pp in paperback.
