I feel like this was a good idea that was told to some publishing exec who thought they could make some quick money on it so pushed it through before it could be done in any real quality.

Because come on, who doesn't want to read about Fitzgerald's thoughts on booze?

It doesn't HAVE much booze in it though. Sure, it's mentioned in all of the stories, but with the exception of the clippings at the beginning, it's just tangential, and all of the writings seem to be from his much later career - specifically in 1934. So I guess that, while I liked the clips in this book, I felt somewhat cheated by the cover.
