F. Scott Fitzgerald was born Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald on September 24, 1896, in St. Paul, MN. He was a distant cousin of Francis Scott Key, who wrote the lyrics to the "Star-Spangled Banner." His mother's family, had made a small fortune in MN as wholesale grocers. His father, struggled to keep a regular job.
Beginning in 1920, Fitzgerald supported himself financially by writing great numbers of short stories for popular publications such as The Saturday Evening Post and Esquire. Some of his most notable stories include "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "The Camel's Back" and "The Last of the Belles."" The Great Gatsby" is considered Fitzgerald's finest work.
A heavy drinker, he progressed steadily into alcoholism and suffered prolonged bouts of writer's block. His wife, Zelda, also suffered from mental health issues, and had to eventually be institutionalized. .
Scott Fitzgerald died believing himself a failure. None of his works received anything more than modest commercial or critical success during his lifetime. Since his death, Fitzgerald has gained a reputation as one of the pre-eminent authors in the history of American literature due almost entirely to the enormous posthumous success of "The Great Gatsby".

“The Romantic Egotist”
“This Side of Paradise”
“The Beautiful & The Dammed”
