read this book

in 1939, frances kroll accepted a position as f. scott fitzgerald’s secretary. unbeknownst to either of them at the time, fitzgerald would only live 20 more months. against the current is kroll’s personal account of those final months. this book is an enlightening look at fitzgerald — a committed father and husband, a devoted friend and an unquestionably brilliant writer.

[fitzgerald] left a touch of magic, intriguing us continuously to try to fathom his cleverness.

my memory harbors a gentle man with a nearly collapsed dream whose prevailing gift gave him the strength to keep doing what he did best — to write.
