really liked it
bookshelves: new-york-books, 1920s
Read in March, 2009

I really like Fitzgerald's writing, and his short stories were very interesting. The last few were a little repetitive, I thought, concerning as they did sad young couples with young children falling apart, but overall there was a very interesting mix of New York socialite stories, stories with some very strange, almost fantastical events (such as "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "O Russet Witch"). My favorite of the collection is probably "The Lees of Happiness", which I found very moving and interesting. I'll definitely keep reading Fitzgerald's short stories after this.
