This third collection of Fitzgerald's extremely popular short stories was published in 1926, in the wake of his most famous novel, The Great Gatsby.

Though his novels have become enduring classics, in his own time F. Scott Fitzgerald was primarily famous as a gifted and prolific writer of short stories, which were regularly published in the most popular periodicals of the day. This third collection of his tales, All the Sad Young Men, contains some of his most admired stories, including "Absolution," "The Rich Boy," and the haunting "Winter Dreams." These stories riff on the same themes that animated his great novels, and together they produce a scintillating portrait of America at the height of the Jazz Age.
F. Scott Fitzgerald was considered the quintessential author of the Jazz Age. Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896, Fitzgerald attended Princeton University, where he began to write seriously. After joining the U.S. Army in 1917, Fitzgerald met Zelda Sayre, whom he later married. In 1920, Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise, transformed Fitzgerald overnight into a literary sensation. The Great Gatsby followed in 1925, although it was not as popular at the time as his second novel, The Beautiful and the Damned. Fitzgerald died in 1940 of a heart attack. He was forty-four years old. View titles by F. Scott Fitzgerald
“[Fitzgerald] was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a generation.” —The New York Times
