First published in 1922, The Beautiful and Damned followed Fitzgerald's impeccable debut, This Side of Paradise, thus securing his place in the tradition of great American novelists. Embellished with the author's lyrical prose, here is the story of Harvard-educated, aspiring aesthete Anthony Patch and his beautiful wife, Gloria. As they await the inheritance of his grandfather's fortune, their reckless marriage sways under the influence of alcohol and avarice.
A devastating look at the nouveau riche and the New York nightlife, as well as the ruinous effects of wild ambition, The Beautiful and Damned achieved stature as one of Fitzgerald's most accomplished novels. Its distinction as a classic endures to this day.

Fitzgerlad's second novel is a sprawling piece that looks at everything from classism to marriage, and intimacy. It's very well read and up there with my favourite novels of the 20th century.
