West of Sunset free pdf A mesmerizing and haunting ("The" "Boston Globe") novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald s last years in Hollywood Look out for"City of Secrets"coming from Viking on April 26, 2016 In 1937, F. Scott Fitzgerald was a troubled, uncertain man whose literary success was long over. In poor health, with his wife consigned to an asylum and his finances in ruin, he struggled to make a new start as a screenwriter in Hollywood. Those last three years of Fitzgerald s life are the focus of Stewart O Nan s graceful and elegiac novel "West of Sunset." With flashbacks to Fitzgerald s glamorous Jazz Age past, the story follows him as he arrives on the MGM lot, falls in love with brassy gossip columnist Sheilah Graham, begins work on"The Last Tycoon," and tries to maintain a semblance of family life with the absent Zelda and their daughter, Scottie. The Golden Age of Hollywood is brought vividly to life through the novel s romantic cast of characters, from Dorothy Parker and Ernest Hemingway to Humphrey Bogart. Written with striking grace and subtlety, this is a wise and intimate portrait of a man trying his best to hold together a world that s flying apart."
