Parts of this uneven book read like they are lifted straight from the author's masters thesis on Zelda Fitzgerald's literary output, while others are quite entertaining and readable. Zelda was a talented (though unfocused) writer herself, and at first Scott encouraged her talent. As he fell deeper into raging alcoholism and struggled harder to write, he became bitter and resentful, and was basically a huge jerk. An interesting look at both the Jazz Age and what it means to be an artist.
