The Last Tycoon
The Last Tycoon | F. Scott Fitzgerald
Fitzgerald's experiences as a screen writer in Hollywood provided the fodder for this unfinished novel (Fitzgerald died of a heart attack in December 1940 after having partially completed Chapter 6 of The Last Tycoon). The author's notes concerning the balance of the novel were collected and edited by literary critic Edmund Wilson, a close friend to Fitzgerald, and the book was published posthumously in 1941. The story concerns the rise to power of Hollwood producer Monroe Stahr, a character allegedly based on Irving Thalberg, whose talent, ambition and raw magnetism were traits Fitzgerald admired. Sayre Street Books offers the world's greatest literature in easy to navigate, beautifully designed digital editions.

Honestly, making this book a pick because it‘s so interesting to see Fitzgerald‘s notes and writing process. I‘ve learned a lot from it and got the beautiful prose in the process.

BookBabe @LauraBeth hehe! I love watching the seasons change. I don't think I could live full time in a place that didn't have all 4. Just when I'm getting tired of the one, here comes another! 👌🏻This has been a exceptional summer. Lots of big thunderstorms, rain deluges, fog, etc. I'm enjoying the drama of it! 2y

A panel with Matt Bomer (White Collar) and two showrunners/writer(s) for Amazon's upcoming adaptation of The Last Tycoon. It's weird to see someone that good-looking in real life and not just on the screen! #BookCon

Starring Matt Bomer: Amazon's new series based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's last (and unfinished) novel, The Last Tycoon. Launches late July. This panel discussed the process and art of taking a classic book and adapting it to film. Fascinating! #BookCon #BookCon2017 #BookCon17 #MattBomer #TheLastTycoon

Jess_Read_This Omigosh!! I would have loved to have heard about this. 💕 2y
