Review: Some Sort of Epic Grandeur: The Life of F. Scott Fitzgerald

User Review  - Erin - Goodreads

This is a well-researched, comprehensive look at Fitzgerald's life. At points my interest waned, but overall it was a great biography that gave me a good sense of what Fitzgerald's life was like and what sort of man he was. Read full review
