Originally written in 1941, Mizener takes great care to weave an analysis of F. Scott Fitzgerald's work into the details of his life. The result is a well balanced biography, bringing "Scott" as he is referred to throughout the book, alive on many different levels. Mizener put a great deal of research into writing Far Side but his style is not dry, nor overly academic. The entire biography is peppered with humor and an easy conversational style. "Meanwhile he [Fitzgerald] had begun to write and had become St. Paul Academy's star debater (no one had found means to shut him up)" (p 18) is just an example of the humor embedded in Mizener's biography. The only thing I really found missing were pictures. I would have enjoyed seeing the styles of the 1920s and 30s. The stories of the parties the Fitzgeralds used to have are hysterical.
