A beautiful leather bound copy of Fitzgerald's 2nd most famous novel (after THE GREAT GATSBY) as well as his notable short stories. The binding is enhanced by a lovely art deco designed illustration. A stand out on any bookshelf Highly recommend
I love this compilation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's writings. I am eagerly hoping that there will be a B&N collectible edition of The Great Gatsby available in the future!
love this, just wish it had The Great Gatsby in it which is the only reason I won't buy it.
