Fun Fact Friday- Scott Fitzgerald

In the spirit of the new movie, The Great Gatsby, I’ve decided to do a Fitzgerald post this time.

The Great Gatsby has become Fitzgerald’s most famous work. However, when the book was first published, it was not considered a success. Fitzgerald felt the lack of commercial appeal was due to the novel’s slim size. He felt audiences preferred longer, weightier works.” (Source: Bright Hub Education)

Do you know any other interesting facts about Fitzgerald?

  2. No, I don’t mind. In fact, I enjoyed reading your post about Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby. I had no idea that he contributed to Gone with the Wind’s script.
