Background...
1918: When 21 year old author-to-be Lieutenant F. Scott Fitzgerald met 18 year old Zelda Sayre at a mid-summer night's dance in Montgomery, Alabama, he "fell in love with a whirlwind". She wrote "I want you to wear me, like a buttonhole bouquet to the world".
In under two years Zelda was Scott's bride, and fuelled by the success of his first novel, the couple propelled themselves onto the world stage and into a life of high living, big spending and party going. It was the Roaring 20s. Scott christened it the Jazz Age, and Zelda was its High Priestess
Riding the waves between America and Europe in a never-ending search for excitement, Scott was the novelist, Zelda was the novelty.
But behind the glittering façade lay a tragedy of epic proportions.

Read about the lives of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald in Zelda: A Biography by Nancy Milford.
