The Greatest Tales of F. Scott Fitzgerald

Bernice Bobs Her Hair (1920) is the story centers on Bernice, who is an awkward girl visiting her cousin's family for part of the summer. Bernice's cousin is a snobby girl who pretends to befriend Bernice in order to teach her about how to act in modern society, but then tricks Bernice into “bobbing” her hair — an act that meets much criticism from the boys who were once so captivated with her. The Diamond as Big as the Ritz (1922) Fitzgerald said that he wrote this story simply to amuse himself.The story centers on John T. Unger, a boy from Hades, Mississippi and his summer trip to a classmate's house “out West”. John later learns that his classmate's family lives on a diamond the size of a mountain, and they do some pretty awful things to keep that a secret. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (1922) It is a charming fantasy about a man who ages in reverse, descending through the years from newborn senescence to terminal infancy. The Popular Girl (1922) It tells the story of society girl Yanci Bowman, who realizes she is alone after her father dies. She is enchanted to meet Scott Kimberly, a very rich and very eligible young man. Too ashamed to admit to Scott her desperate state, she instead creates a fanciful world full of parties and holidays, friends and suitors, to convince him she is still the popular girl he first met. However, as her charade grows ever more fragile, she endangers their friendship and her very hope of salvation. Winter Dreams (1922) Winter Dreams is a story, with a theme about a young boy who follows his dreams. He aims to become a wealthy man to win the girl he loves.
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 — December 21, 1940), known professionally as F. Scott Fitzgerald, was an American novelist and short story writer, whose works illustrate the Jazz Age. While he achieved limited success in his lifetime, he is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

    could scarcely become sufficiently stimulated to annoy anyone.
    All this entailed considerable exertion on Yanci’s part, and it was less for her father’s sake than for her own that she went through with it. Several rather unpleasant experiences were scattered through this past summer. One night when she had been detained by the impassioned and impossible-to-interrupt speech of a young man from Chicago her father had appeared swaying gently in the ballroom doorway; in his ruddy handsome face two faded blue eyes were squinted half shut as he tried to focus them on the dancers, and he was obviously preparing to offer himself to the first dowager who caught his eye. He was ludicrously injured when Yanci insisted upon an immediate withdrawal.
    After that night Yanci went through her Fabian maneuver to the minute.
    Yanci and her father were the handsomest two people in the Middle Western city where they lived. Tom Bowman’s complexion was hearty from twenty years spent in the service of good whisky and bad golf.
