Flappers and Philosophers
I am still making my way through the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald. I finished Flappers and Philosophers the other day, which I enjoyed. My favorite stories (and they are the most well-known from it as well) are “The Ice Palace,” “Bernice Bobs her Hair,” and “Benediction”–all featuring young women at a certain cross-roads in her life.
Fitzgerald made quite a good living selling stories, and truly they are entertaining–though some of them seem a bit outdated in their delivery. Mostly, though, they are beautiful, moving things.
Next, I will read The Beautiful and Damned.
