The paragraph transitions are a little choppy, but for an uncompleted manuscript this is extremely polished and honed. Sometimes one will simply forget this detail because of the quality of the story-telling. I am quickly falling in love with the book that is the unfinished jewel at the pinnacle of a master's career.

I grew up in Southern California, not far from Hollywood, and has always despised the movie industry in a way from the familiarity. I lost the sense of glow and glamor, but Fitzgerald is slowly re-awaking my love for one of the West's most lustrous legacies. His words are bringing back the sense of history and fascination for the Golden Age of Hollywood.
