 About the Book 

There was a rough stone age and a smooth stone age and a bronze age, and many years afterward a cut-glass age. In the cut-glass age, when young ladies had persuaded young men with long, curly moustaches to marry them, they sat down several monthsMoreThere was a rough stone age and a smooth stone age and a bronze age, and many years afterward a cut-glass age. In the cut-glass age, when young ladies had persuaded young men with long, curly moustaches to marry them, they sat down several months afterward and wrote thank-you notes for all sorts of cut-glass presents...The cut-glass age was Scott Fitzgeralds age - and it splintered and shattered right before his eyes. In these seven short stories (the first volume in a new uniform Penguin edition) Fitzgeralds insight reflects and refacts the profane image of America in the Jazz Age, creating cameos of a fairy-tale life among the very rich. By the idylls prove illusory- and the picture is always disrupted by sharp, painful shafts of reality.
