‘to write it took three months; to conceive it – three minutes; to collect the data in it – all my life’F. Scott Fitzgerald’s first novel, This Side of Paradise tells the story of Amory Blaine as he grows from pampered childhood to young adulthood, and learns to know himself better. At Princeton he becomes a literary aesthete and makes friends with other aspiring writers and young women with whom he falls in love. Youthful exuberance and immaturity give way to disillusion and disappointment as Amory confronts the realities of life.A thinly disguised account of Fitzgerald’s own Princeton years, the novel’s frank description of Amory’s successive love affairs shocked and delighted its first readers, and the book was an immediate success. Brilliant and original in style and structure, it was a spectacular launching for Fitzgerald’s career, and instantly stamped him as the bard of the Jazz Age.
