Fitzgerald on the beach

As much as we like new novels, some of the old ones are good, too: Best Summer Beach Read: F.Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is The Night

If you are new to Fitzgerald, I would recommend starting out with The Great Gatsby or This Side of Paradise

The latter book, though obviously dated for today's reading public, remains one of the best coming-of-age novels ever written.

But where Fitzgerald really shines is in his short stories.
