Tender is the Night - F Scott Fitzgerald


Astonishingly modern in style and content (sex! alcoholism! mental illness!) and at times beautiful in its descriptions, you still can't get away from the fact that it's self-indulgent, hard-going and, obviously, not nearly as good as The Great Gatsby.

  1. Just spotted this, I read it too. How many people have read this book because they loved Gatsby and been disappointed? Well, two at least! I found it a real slog. And most of the characters extremely dislikable. Bx
