With an Introduction and Notes by Henry Claridge, Senior Lecturer, School of
English, University of Kent at Canterbury.
Tender is the Night is a story set in the hedonistic high society of Europe
during the â€کRoaring Twentiesâ€™. A wealthy schizophrenic, Nicole Warren,
falls in love with Dick Diver - her psychiatrist. The resulting saga of the
Diversâ€™ troubled marriage, and their circle of friends, includes a cast of
aristocratic and beautiful people, unhappy love affairs, a duel, incest, and
the problems inherent in the possession of great wealth. Despite cataloguing a
maelstrom of interpersonal conflict,Tender is the Night has a poignancy and
warmth that springs from the quality of Fitzgerald's writing and the tragic
personal experiences on which the novel is based.
Six years separate Tender is the Night and The Last Tycoon, the novel
Fitzgerald left unfinished at his death in December 1940.آ Fitzgerald lived in
Hollywood more or less continuously from July 1937 until his death, and a novel
about the film industry at the height ofآ 'the studio system'آ centred on the
working life of a top producer was begun in 1939.آ آ Even in its
incompleteآ stateThe Last Tycoon remains the greatest American novel about
Hollywood and contains some of Fitzgerald's most brilliant writing.
