"So that's always been Sort of the goal. Like I'm curious. What about for you and the Fitzgerald estate? How How do you think about The legacy of that work and how if Scott Fitzgerald would want that work to be treated? Well, I think it's it is hard to know you know exactly what he would want to do. In each instance you know that when people ask for permissions, you know it's not There hasn't been a sort of blanket policy about what we think he would or wouldn't want to have happen, But we know that he cared so much about posterity, and he can't cared very much about his work being sort of for the ages. Um and in terms of, you know, adaptations and things what merrily just said about, for example, a graphic novel. We just published a graphic novel this past year and a big part of of putting forward a project that we hoped that he would be proud of. Was choosing a good team and we found an illustrator. I am Morton, who did a beautiful job, a text adapter Fred Fordham, who was very faithful to the text, and we're lucky to have a publisher Scrivener. Who was so supportive of the project, and everyone you know is very concerned with the integrity of the text of doing what we hoped would make Scott proud and he would enjoy Um And in terms of other adaptations. Scott had a very fraught relationship with Hollywood in general, but he Was thrilled at the idea of, for example, Gatsby being made into a film. I don't think he was particularly thrilled with the earliest version, but we have been in general more, much more open to film and TV adaptations of his work versus You Know, prequels equals things like that. We have not been open to those that that was a policy that Started long before my time. So those any prequels air Sequels that are coming out now this is this really has been the first opportunity for people to do that, as as Gatsby in particular, has just Come into the public domain. I'm Jenn White. You're listening to one, eh? We're talking with Blake Hazard the granddaughter of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda Fitzgerald.

We're also hearing from you, Tom Emails. Volunteer readjustment of a catalog is voluntary and not censorship. I think it's also important to acknowledge the person in the work as separate these works. An author should be considered in the rich contacts in which they exist. It Whether you're a teacher, a student or library in Oran, archivist how if you contended with the legacy and work of some of our most beloved and controversial authors, you can comment on our Facebook page tweet us at one A. Or send us an email at one A at W A. M u dot or G'kar. You know, Miranda, a major part of what a literary estate does is find opportunities for works of literature to reach new audiences as we heard. From merely and Blake in a way that's similar to the work of a library and talk about your role in guiding students and teachers toward new material. Yes, Absolutely So, in terms of curriculum, the books that students reading class You know our schools and teachers are working very hard to make changes to those lists, not to censor or cancel any classics but to make sure We are showing students windows and mirrors and and letting them, um, compare books so we might still read. The great gets be we Still beat and Huck Finn, but we're going to add, you know, parable of this somewhere and the poet X and they hate you give and really let students look side by side at different books from different areas and as they evaluate On this books and making sure that they have lots of choices and things they're seeing. And then on the library side where they're choosing books for independent reading, we're making sure that we're displaying and promoting the best and newest and most relevant literature. Well, we got this tweet from Rachel, who says I'm currently teaching the Great Gatsby and definitely considering the context of the 19 twenties, including social classes, racism, etcetera. The students are keenly aware of the issues and Sally from Kansas sent us this email. I would like to know if anyone has explored giving books ratings similar to what we do with movies, for example, are PG 13 X, rather than removing them from shelves. That way. Readers would know that these books have certain content and would be able to make their own educated decision on what to read. Book stores could even have restrictions on certain books so that people under 18 could not purchase certain books. Miranda. I would not be in favor of that. Uh, first of all, who decides right on the rating, and, um, you know, so books do come with At reviews Right We have we select books for libraries based on book reviews, because, unfortunately, we can't read them all. I would love to, um but also, you know, and and they'll come with interest levels, and reviewers will say This is appropriate for this age group, especially in school libraries, where we're selecting for our students. But to be able to rate or label or, you know, put, put some kind of warning on books or to restrict the age. I wouldn't think that would be a good idea just comes down to who decides that No merrily, you mentioned that FX has ordered a pilot based on Butler's influential novel Kindred. Last week, NASA named the landing site of the agency's perseverance Rover after Butler. It's called the Octavia E butler landing. And, you know, I'm curious. You know what How did these opportunities present themselves to you? I mean, they're they're such different scenarios. You no one's happening in space. And then the other one is just like a movie option. How did these things show up? No, it's it's amazing, and I've seen it coming. But this this week past week or two has really been unusual. We also have, um A big, important critical piece about her work in The New Yorker this week. Um By Julian Lucas.

"The cows pains. My sense is if what am I drunk or emptied some dull opiate the drain. Moment since then, leafy weighted Stone Is not from in the nine happy love. Being too happy and then happiness but like wing and dried of the trees and some mill odious plot of beaching green and shadows numbers. Meanest of summer in full throated ease. Michael. What was F. Scott Fitzgerald like as a person and as a writer. Well, it's a person. I mean, you hear various stories, you the general impression. I always get from the people that remember him. He was actually a very warm and charming person. Quite charismatic, though he did have a nasty side that tended to come out when he drank. He was an alcoholic. Andre seems, have been an alcoholic from a fairly early stage in his career. His life on Again as a writer. This is something I'm kind of exploring. He's very divided in some way. He was a writer who here he wrote short stories for the Saturday Evening Post. By the end of the twenties, he was one of the most well paid sort of serious writers in America. Hey, sold his movies. Sorry, started, sold his stories and even the Great Gatsby to the movies. Hey, like the entertainment industry he wanted to. He was trying before you got to be. He was actually writing a play for Broadway, which ended up flopping. S O. There's a side of him. He wanted to be very popular and and enjoyed the sort of modern American scene at the same time. I think he also had this kind of lofty ambition to be you know, Keats or Uh, you know, one of one of the greatest writers of all time, He told it, Edmund Wilson. So there was this very serious side and I see him kind of divided in that respect. We wanted to be the great serious author who left these classics but also someone who really wanted to be popular in his time, But he tended to disparage that kind of work as his career went on. Menu, noting your introduction that Fitzgerald was a fan of Karl Marx, the father of Marxism and was by some speculation, practicing socialist and you've alluded to this, but I want you to dig into it a little bit more. How does this critique of capitalism show up in the novel? Oh, I think that very often We focus on the great love. The Gatsby has for Daisy, but actually, and there's no need to worry about spoilers. We don't focus enough about the fact that there are three people dead at the end of the book. And those are outsiders. And I think that Fitzgerald want to drive that point home, and that's not something that's going to be desired by book clubs and people who want to think about romantic ideas. But you have to outsiders who are killed one by his own hand, and then you have Myrtle, who is murdered. And these are the people of the Valley of Ashes. And you have Gatsby who tried everything that he could do from North Dakota all the way to the East Coast to become somebody and he, too, ends up being killed unfairly. So you have this meaningless, cruel death of those who are outsiders, And I think that's what Fitzgerald wanted you to know. Marine When you think about the way this novel has been presented in popular movie, you know, they've been films things like that. Do you think that has translated? What minutes talked about has translated in some of the adaptations we've seen of the book. No, I don't want one of my great disappointments with the best lurman version was that he left out the most important line about Daisy in his film. The description of her voice. You know, her voice sounds like money. You know, That's what that's what men I think is speaking to when she talks about Conflation of Daisy with chasing after wealth chasing after wretched excess, it does. It does result in death that results in Gatsby's death. And I think you know, the films have tended to just celebrate Gatsby, Azua Love story and as a celebration of wretched excess. The one exception is the 1949 version with Alan Ladd. Which films in which Gatsby is filmed as almost like a film in war and kind of a gangster movie, And I think that's my favorite version. Just because it resist this temptation to simply celebrate the story is a love story. We should also know that the Great Gatsby was not a commercial success at first men. Why did it do so poorly when it first came out? 1925 I think people were deeply disappointed by the book. I think that if you read the book, it's not a happy story. And I think when you think about book clubs and people were really excited about books right often, they want to pass it along because something about them really struck them. And I do, And he actually says the reason why build is because women didn't like it. And that makes a lot of sense to me because I think the women are the weakest characters in this book, and he thinks so, too, and consequently, it didn't do very well. Maureen Corrigan's book is excellent in the treatment of Wyatt revitalizes and I cited in my introduction, so she would be a really good person to discuss how it gets born again and I was so surprised by its failure because I didn't know that at all morning. We've got about 30 seconds here. But your thoughts about about the failure after the book was first released. A. Zeman said women by fiction and the women in this novel that the female characters are not sympathetic. So that's a big reason and I think you know it was. It was also Miss Red. It was it was reviewed as a crime novel by a lot of the reviewers at the time, So I think people kind of didn't know what to make of it, you know, from from F. Scott Fitzgerald. We're revisiting The Great Gatsby with Maureen Corrigan..
The Great Gatsby
"In nineteen twenty five. F scott fitzgerald published the great gatsby and like pretty much every author. He copyrighted the book when it came out which you know fair enough the way copyright worked at the time fitzgerald and his heirs could collect royalties from the book for fifty six years. All the way until nineteen eighty-one and during that time if anybody wanted to make movie or play or anything at all based on gatsby they would have to get permission and probably pay a licensing fee to the fitzgerald family. And then according to the law after the fifty six years the book would go into something called the public domain fitzgerald's kids or grandkids wouldn't get royalties any more and more importantly anyone who wanted to could print up and give away copies of the book or rewrite it from toms horses. Point of view or create gatsby on ice anything at all and you know copyright. Is this balancing. Act on the one hand you want to encourage and reward people who write books create things but you also want to let those things enter the public domain at some point so we can all share them and tweak them and build on them and make more creative stuff. The artists figuring out how long to keep something in copyright there was nothing special about fifty six years. That's just a number that congress picked and then they decided to change it in nineteen seventy six just five years before the great gatsby entered the public domain. Five years before gatsby on ice congress changed copyright law. They said among other things fifty six years not quite long enough under the new stronger rules. Gatsby wouldn't go into the public domain until two thousand one and then just a few years before that congress jumped in again and made copies of old works last even longer under the new new rules. Gas would not go into the public domain until almost one hundred years after it was written until twenty twenty one but still sounds like some meat up year from the future to me. And you know congress could have kept pushing this date making the copyright longer and longer until the three thousand or something like that but there's been some pushback on the ever lengthening copyright period. Not enough pushback to start making the copyright shorter but enough to stop making them longer and so on january first of this year. Finally the great gatsby went into the public domain into our domain. It belongs to us now. It belongs to everybody. And what we now own i have to say is a complicated book. It has the romance and beauty of america. It also has the racism and misogyny and anti semitism of america and maybe the most american thing about the It's all about money. This is a book about why people want money and what they do when they get it and what money does to them. In other words. Gatsby is the perfect story for planet money and now that gets me is in the public domain. If we wanted to we could talk about it for a minute at the beginning of the show. Yeah say hello and welcome to planet money sticking ahead break in and then we could read the whole thing. We could read the entire book the entire book and posted on our podcast.

A Big Publishing Plot Twist: Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion
"Biggest news to hit the publishing industry this year. Possibly several years happened last wednesday. And we're betting that you missed it after all. You were probably contemplating cooking a turkey for two and planning zoom thanksgiving dinners with relatives right so just in case here. It is again the parent company of penguin random house's buying simon and schuster for two billion dollars penguin random house or pr h has already america's largest book publisher according to the new york times. Should the acquisition go through and there are some caveats which will get to pr. H will be. The industry's first mega publisher. The times claims. Let's delve into this just a little bit as we've talked about here before simon and shuster is among the oldest of today's big five publishing houses and one of the most distinguished dick simon and schuster founded the company in nineteen twenty four. The partners first product was hardly a literary masterpiece. It was a book of crossword puzzles. And according to simon and schuster's corporate historian it was a runaway bestseller today. Almost one hundred years. After the lowly crossword puzzle got the entrepreneurial venture off the ground simon and schuster or s operates in a different stratosphere. Today it is america's third largest publisher over the years it's published scads of famous even legendary authors including ernest hemingway and f scott fitzgerald also political figures from both sides of the aisle including jimmy carter hillary clinton and donald trump and contemporary authors. Like bob woodward stephen king and anti prue as well as judy blume s prints and authors have won fifty seven pulitzer prizes and innumerable other literary awards including several caldecott medals one of the highest honors given to children's books the company now sells about two thousand titles annually all told s and s takes in close to nine hundred million dollars a year but early this year. Parent company viacom. Cbs decided to go all in on streaming video in sports looking to cut close to a billion dollars in operating expenses ceo. Bob bakish announced that s wasn't what he called a core asset hence the sale in march the rumored price for us and s was one point two billion dollars a bidding. Were hike the final price to two point. Two billion dollars among other contenders america's second largest publisher harpercollins also vivendi. A french company. That owns a stake in. American publisher has yet and rupert murdoch's news corp clearly penguin random house's parent german media giant bertelsmann was willing to pay top dollar for s and s one reason in addition to the competition between publishers for blockbuster bestsellers the big five face. A formidable rival in certain amazon and when it comes to fighting off amazon size matters since two thousand nine amazon has been a publisher. Not just the world's largest both retailer today. It has sixteen imprints that publish everything from thrillers. To romance novels it signs. Top selling authors like dean koontz patricia. Cornwell taking them and their millions of sales away from traditional publishers in two thousand seventeen amazon published more than twelve hundred titles according to the wall street journal if those numbers have grown in the last three years amazon could well already rival simon and schuster for the volume of new works. It's producing what makes amazon such a tough competitor is a book publisher of course is it status as a bookseller. Moreover it has a number of marketing weapons that traditional publishers. Do not such as the ability to easily promote low priced e books to millions of amazon prime members and kindle owners. The wall street journal reports that along with oodles of cash to lure away big name authors as the largest american publisher penguin. Random house has the clout and logistical network to compete successfully with amazon. The merged company would have annual revenues of three billion dollars according to book industry bible publishers. Weekly but we should note here. The acquisition faces obstacles worthy of an epic novel authors and agents represented by the authors guild. Say such a deal will make it even harder for new authors and so called mid list writers to get published meaning. If you haven't written a blockbuster or a solid backlist title your chances to get published and your earnings could shrink. Pr h says. Simon and schuster will remain editorially independent and both publishing houses say they remain devoted to readers and writers still publishers weekly reports that by blending s. npr h german-owned. Bertelsmann would own about one third of the us book market. That's the number that could trigger antitrust. Investigators to closely scrutinize the deal. According to the new york times but those market share numbers are in dispute in both directions. The authors guild which causes tie up says a combined. Pr h. s. would wind up publishing half of all trade books in the us. Meaning not textbooks penguin. Random house's leadership argues not true and says future market share would be less than twenty percent and that an antitrust investigation is unlikely what happens next will likely hinge on which of these numbers comes closest to reality

But other well I think they were very ordinary family. They absolutely In the thing that the things that happened in this family can happen in any family. Well the Pergola we have Karen now. She's now the grandmother but goes back in time when she was first mother. No one tells you that being a mother about being a mother. I birth is both exhilarating and terrifying will. She's a mother of twins and she's just moved to a new place. That's right and I think that that in itself would be terrifying. It's tough enough. Having twins little line moving into it into a new town but they moved to a seaside town With a very tight community so as as it says in the prologue she was welcomed pretty quickly and the last line per log. Now she's got twins is make things better alice. I'll keep you safe in particular ways. We Monday up wonder right from the beginning. Why just Alice what Alice was born as as often happens with twins? One tween is A lot smaller than the other and was born with a series of developmental delays. So her childhood was very much all about physiotherapy occupational therapy speech therapy. Shering getting up to speed. And of course her old between Had a perfect except to live she was incredibly sporty uncoordinated and very bright and very driven so alice has grown up working really hard but still always under the shadow of his slightly older sister as even says the only thing that she's better at is odd so let's jump to Libby Libby. The old twin in this ordinary family. This husband Nick. Two daughters and living is a doctor and she's very aware that she's still suffering Greif. What FROMM IS Unfortunately if I've got nick and Lee have got two lovely little girls and they Libby was pregnant unexpectedly pregnant with the child Which was a little boy and he was very sadly stillborn and She's that set happened a couple of years ago and out of typing making these amused. She's busy solving everyone else's problems rather than dealing with her on bed. They also wanted to have another child and it wasn't just happening. Levy said this is a court from Fiona Lewis Book.

Whole feel okay so alice they were coming into puberty and of course had been striving to to keep up with his sister and was about eighteen months behind when puberty hits that becomes a much bigger distance. It wasn't just a sense of style that impressed me the most. It was the fact. She was her in person. She refused to accept a hard time from anyone and she didn't conform. Okay what the other go thought of her. She walked her in pop. Just as ANA give a damn attitude was intoxicating. It was a freedom. Liberty had never experienced. She being raised to always consider actions might affect others especially between but recently she had intense moments when she wanted to scream and break free. Do what she wanted without having to worry about anyone else's feelings to be a separate person from Allah flu. Yes pull Alice.

The jets came to live his house his parents Karen and pate the head of difference of opinion over the dinner table. What to expect them to happen? je Jess was sitting there. Waiting for payday to backhand Tom Karen because Just had been raised in well. She actually was her. Mother doesn't Alchoholic and it's had a series of difficult relationships with main and win. I arrived in Kanai when when she was fifteen she'd lost track of how many times she's been a victim because mom lost control of the rent so she had a pretty tough she tough childhood and she and the House is in chaos but her room isn't because just was trying to control what she could much or care and gave Gist Support. And in meshed her into the hunter family now now grown up and with professional lives but libby pleads for just to come back to connive bay with Larry.

Flight Lines: The Heroic Story of Two Migratory Shorebirds
"Have someone sitting opposite me just twitching to tell his story. The book is flat. Lines and the author is Andrew Dobson Andrew. Welcome to three C- I thank you. David I'm curious about the would twitching. I haven't really made a close study of twitching despite writing. This book. Twitching is a word that is used by dedicated. Some say obsessive Burgers and sometimes they detractors to Indicate their preoccupation with finding the next bird. An observing bird minded research. Because it's not actually mentioned in the book the twitching behavior of Howard Medhurst who was one of the leading birdwatchers in the nineteen fifties and sixties. But this book in other words is about birds or in particular one species of birds the grey plover a daoist wallflower of the shorter dance. It spreads thinly around the world's margins and is often overlooked. What's the fascination with the Gripe Lot? Well let's start by working our way towards the bird from what we are. Probably the closest bird that we know to this is the masked left wing. It's often colder plaza. But it's sexually left wing but that's what we know as a plot now go through that gate and think about the kinds of things that the left wing does transfer them to the tidal flats of the world the far-flung tidal flats of the world. And there's this small bird not much begun a blackbird gray when it's out of the breeding grounds highly colored up when it gets to the breeding grounds and it is commonly found with others in the group of Long Distance Flying Margaret lowrie shore. Birds the ultramarathons birds. Now when you say ultra-marathon sort of distance are we talking so the two birds that I particularly follow which were satellite tag in South Australia and flew north on the first flight. Each of them flew over the entirety of Australia of Indonesia the Philippines to land one of them in Taiwan and the other in southern China so each of them took a nonstop flight of more than seven thousand kilometers. Just to give us a sort of indication in layman's terms. When you're holding this bird. How much are you holding? Well you're holding about a cup of sugar not a big white. You're holding something that really can be quite placid in the hand. Despite its wildness. And you're holding. I guess the promise of many generations of optic life birdlife and they transcend boundaries in many ways in the journey. We've got apple tree boundaries as people on borders and they bicycling cross all of those hemispheres international borders and such like. It's it's quite a phenomenal feet. If you want to get carried beyond the trivialities of human life like borders then migratory long distance migratory birds are a really good way to start because there will pass through the margins of many countries but is not off one eye and they have total disregard for human borders. Now one of the things that the book sort of touches on as you look this journey other various forms of tagging that have occurred or the ability to follow from banding to rocket nets and now two satellites. The satellites would give you an inordinate amount of opportunity to try and be particular about what you say quite revelatory. They are Give you almost near real time information. About where on the planet this bird is and what it's doing even because if you have a lucrative say on a breeding ground you'll see it move from point to point to point as it fades and then goes back to the central point which is the nest So yes it can be unrivaled information and It really is hugely illuminating. As opposed to the banding which was more happenstance abandoning as the book suggests started in the lighting hundreds. But that would rely on. Someone actually catching the Buddha game. We'll exactly Either catching the again or killing it or finding a dead. The doyen of Australian Migratory Schubert's studies like Clive Minton when he lived in England. Has I band on? A migratory shortbread was on a lovely good coach spotted. Red Shank and he was really pleased to have it in hand really priest to put the band on it and some weeks later he got the band back because it had been shot by the mayor of putting your in France who returned the band with the address on to Clive. Now a couple of things fascinated me about. The birds are reading this book. I'm the song lines. There's a connection here with an indigenous song. Lawn is moving up. Moving from group to group and changing as guides and there's an equivocal mention of what the birds was well yes we'll I'm careful to not impose my description on indigenous cultures. But I hope that I have drawn out of the records of indigenous couches The great variety of names. This bird has as it travels not just from Australia. But through China up to Siberia and across to North America where? It's pretty circum Paula. It has a series of lovely nines. And the they are run there are really illuminating series. Too you know they describe often. I described the bird by its phonetic. Call sometimes they describe it by its coloring in Alaska where I went It was cold emphatic. And that means the scorched bird. But so there's a similarity through the sort of landscape in many ways. Yes depending on which part of the world now for such a fragile creature. They are quite a number of threats in this day and age the threats for the gripe the mind well. We've got a bird here. That has persisted down through evolutionary generations for about one hundred and thirty million years so it's not easily removed from the face of the earth. But while it's doing well other others. In the group of long distance migratory shore birds are not doing so well And as a whole the contracting in numbers. I'm this four that have been listed on Australia's critically endangered list in recent years. Because of the problems they face pardon the analogy but the canary in the coalmine. Well certainly you know I think migratory shore birds. We Stu people generally in Australia particularly and when we look at the coasts we should think about the health of Alco spy. The prison or absence of birds like

I just gotTa make chance. If you're rich and powerful when you conspire with your friends to just remain more rich and powerful I guess some of the most extreme stuff is the stuff that I'm like. Maybe there's a lot there there's a few that are project north woods where JFK was like. Let's just blow up a commercial aircraft and blame it on the Cubans and then we'll go to war there alter the earth is flat and round and we're in the middle of it.

I don't remember seeing him naked but I was just a shy about my own body however this modest did not prevent us from having a good time sexually we satisfied each other and could lie in each other's arms for a long time afterwards delighting in our approximity it was not exhausting. Frenzy lovemaking but gentle and tender and absolutely happy state. She'll seemed to be the opposite of Zelda. In every way she described yourself as a classic goody two shoes she and drink smoke and she played tennis she was a great influence on Scott and and she even liked his penis seriously. She wants wrote personally. Given the choice between a donkey and a chipmunk I might choose the latter in nineteen thirty eight Fitzgerald's daughter Elliott remember. They had a kid now. That's okay. They didn't remember either. Their daughter Scottie is kicked out of boarding school and Scott Uplink Zelda. Because she's an easy scapegoat and as time passed he only grew more and more angry and bitter towards his wife blaming her from any of his perceived failures over the years Zelda's biographer wrote. It was she who had ruined him. She made him exhaust his talents. He had been cheated of his dream by Zelda Bud but being a complicated man Scott One night makes a very conscious decision to get into a drunken violent fight with his girlfriend Sheila so he can storm out of their home men go to the hospital where Zelda's living to whisker away on vacation keepers through the door and just goes packing up Z.. We're going to Cuba. The trip was bad. Even for the Fitzgerald's worlds Scott His ass kicked. He tried to intervene in a literal cockfight and he was so drunk off his ass when he got back to the states. He had to be hospitalized. And that that would be the last time. Zelda and Scott would ever see each other when Scott sobered up and got out of the hospital. He went back to Sheila. And Zelda went back to the institution. MGM in Hollywood. Tore Up Scott's contract because he was a flaming hot mess which led him back to freelancing which mentioned MCI other freelancers will be able to relate to this which meant he mostly drinking wrote self deprecating stories all day in this case they ended up being a huge hit and esquire magazine and Scott was able to get by by the following year Zelda. who was almost forty years old had made so much progress that she was released from the hospital without any friends or money and even though Scott resented her and even though his schedule was g impact? Things like be bitter about my failures and moreover hemingway success he and Zelda continued to regularly write letters to one another they would do so until Scott's death in December of nineteen forty when he was just forty four years old. I can't imagine that anyone was truly surprised at his passing. Scott had been an alcoholic since college so the years of drinking had wreaked absolute havoc on his body. They may have even had chronic tuberculosis. But it's debated amongst biographers. The first time he had a heart attack he was at the drugstore and his doctor told him to take it easy. Sheila says the second time he had a heart attack he was reading and eating a candy bar in his chair. He stood up clutched his chest and died but the rumor that he actually kicked the bucket while they were in bed together persisted for years. Not many people showed up to the funeral not even Soldo was able to make it. His daughter publisher publisher and about twenty other people were present along with the Fitzgerald's old friend. Dorothy Parker who wept and kept repeatedly saying the poor son of a bitch which is a line from the great gatsby before his death Scott had been working on what would be his final novel. The last tycoon. He'd based the book on Irving Thalberg that big shot Hollywood executive if we chatted about in season two of the dirty bits so Zelda eventually came across her late husband's final contribution to the literary world and ensured the title was published still assisting him in his career even after his death between nineteen forty three and nineteen forty eight. The widowed fitzgerald would check in and out of the hospital so often that it caused her to miss her daughter's wedding. During this time. Zelda would also work on a novel entitled Caesar's things a semi-autobiographical trippie experimental piece. That's actually a pretty fun. Read but she would never finished writing it while Zelda was in a locked room awaiting electric-shock therapy a fire in the kitchen hospital broke out and as everything including the fire escapes were made out of wood. Nine women tragically died in the flames including Salta despite having been separated before their deaths. Zoltan Scott are now buried beside one another. The last line from the Great Gatsby is engraved saved on their tombstones. It reads so we beat on boats against the current borne back ceaselessly into the past at the time some of his death Scott considered himself a failure and nobody much noticed solve the died but by nineteen fifty interest in the couple's suddenly surged. Scott Scott was portrayed as an artist with failed potential due to his crazy wife their lives were perfect for those low brow content creators looking for scandalous and salacious stories to exploit late. It appeared that all art would forever be lost to history and nobody would ever truly know how instrumental she was in creating some of the most beloved works in modern in literature but then in the late nineteen sixties. A student Columbia University named Nancy Milford started doing a little research. She she wrote published the first full balls to the wall biography. In nineteen seventy. That would not only give Salta the acknowledgement. She deserved as an artist in our own rate but would also turn in her into a feminist icon. Nancy Milford painted a picture of a woman whose talents skill had been passed over. Due to societal patriarchy and she was instrumental in critics. Some scholars finally recognizing Zelda's talent and skill. People were getting Lok for example just two years before Milford would release her biography. Matthew coli early in F Scott Fitzgerald scholar would write the following a newly released edition of saving the Waltz. Save me the waltz is worth reading partly because anything that illuminates the career. The F. Scott Fitzgerald is worth reading and because it is the only published novel of a brave and talented woman who is remembered for her defeats over ten years later scholarship clean air. Corporate would call out records. Nineteen sixty eight assessment saying. Save me the waltz is a moving and fascinating novel. Awful which should be read on its own terms equally as much as tender is the night it needs no other justification than its comparative excellence and Machiko Pico Kotani. A literary critic for the New York Times would write about the novel was written in. Two months is amazing that for all its flaws. It still manages to charm arm amuse and move. The reader is even more remarkable. Zelda Fitzgerald succeeded in this novel in conveying her own heroic desperation to succeed at something of her own and she also managed to distinguish herself as a writer. With as Edmund Wilson once said of her husband a gift for turning language into something iridescent and unsurprising even Zola's paintings were discovered and finally appreciated what her mother hadn't torched had been tucked away in various family members addicts during most of the nineteen nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties. The Art was later rediscovered by scholars and has now been exhibited throughout not only the United States but Europe as well curator Solidaire says the Zelda appears to have drawn inspiration from Van Gogh and Georgia O'Keefe and gave her work a beautiful review saying it represents the work of talented talented visionary woman who rose above tremendous odds to create a.

"The host post that Gerald actually left his own party repulsed by Scots Behavior? It wasn't the only time Scott with Rocha. The people either Scott had a pension for chucking whatever was closest within reach fellow party attendees he tossed a ripe fig until the Belgian Princess Jim as cleavage and chucked his friend Sarah. Murphy's nation glasses asses off her balcony. Speaking of Sarah Murphy Scott also became obsessed with her. Like they'd be having dinner and she wouldn't give him her undivided attention attention so he would yell. Sarah Look at me. She was quoted as having said he was in love with all women. He was sort of a Masher. You know he tried hi to kiss you in taxis. But what's a little kiss between friends totally. What's a little assault between friends? While appearances would still suggest the life of carefree glamour to the public. The Fitzgerald self-destruction became apparent to their close buds. This resulted in many of their friends. Distancing themselves from the couple looking for some kind of purpose and fulfilment in nineteen twenty nine Zelda decided to take up bellaigue and in her late twenties after having previously studied the dance as a young girl all she was desperate to have an art form that was only hers as opposed to just living in the shadow over husband as a writer. Scott however was not supportive and fought. She was wasting her time. which Kinda did make sense? Because Zelda was twenty-seven Nikon only realistically go so far that age but despite fight those odds assaulted dedicated eight hours a day to dance drove herself to exhaustion and amazingly ended up being invited to study at a school for a dance company in Naples apples but after all the blood sweat and tears for some reason she said no and while this was the same girl that once wrote in her diary. I'll never get ambitious enough to try anything. It's so much nicer to be sure. I could do a better than other people and I might. Not that of course would break my heart. I still can't help but wonder if there was something else that caused her to decline the invitation and this is pure speculation on my part but I think it may have been because she was on the brink of a breakdown and she knew it just a few months later. Zelda would be admitted to a sanatorium and diagnosed nose to schizophrenic though today she would more likely be diagnosed with the mood or personality disorder. It's worth noting that genetic factors were likely play here as well. Well considering her father had a mental breakdown and both her brother and grandmother committed suicide. Usually this is the part where I'd make some quick little remark to lighten. Lighten the mood as we transition into the next yet of the episode. But it's not getting any better from here on out folks so you've been warned after moving around through various institutions for about a year. The Fitzgerald returned to Alabama nineteen thirty one because Zelda's dad was dying. Scott basically dropped her off wave to the family and announced he was on his his way to Hollywood after his dad died. Her health began to once again decline and she was admitted to a psychiatric hospital again. In February nineteen thirty two after the first six weeks of her stay. Zelda wrote the novel. Save me the waltz and sent it to Maxwell Perkins Scott's publisher. It's a really fantastic piece of work and incredibly revealing in the novel per views of marriage. Don't white lineup. With Scott's Own Perspective on matrimony a perspective he himself was conveying in the book he was working on at the time. That book would later be known as tender is the night in. Save me the waltz. Zelda also addressed. How modern issues affected women issues like stress consumerism and quite foreboding false representation of mental illness particularly in women when Maxwell the publisher gets her manuscript and calls up Scott like Scott result? His book. Now Scotty doesn't know okay. I'm going to email and on over. Hang on a SEC. Well it's basically tender is the night. Yeah Yeah I know you've been working on it for years. I don't know what to tell you. Sounds like a personal problem as a not my problem as in you talked Dr her because I ain't touching this with a ten foot pole so Scott true to form totally blows a fuse rates. All of these furious letters Zelda like we need to change this. You can't put anything in there. I was going to use. I was writing about this. I I need you and Scott Really. Didn't want to write the Volkan. All he continuously browbeat her over it even calling her a third rate writer at one point he was jealous. Didn't want her to upstage him. He's still needed to plagiarize plagiarize her for his own career. After all. But despite Scott's best efforts Zelda did publisher novel and it was Super Sexy Literary Scholars Jacqueline Tavanir Corp in described the book. Well when she wrote in nineteen seventy. Nine the sensuality arises from Alabama's awareness of the life surge within her the consciousness of the body the natural imagery through which not only emotions but simple facts are expressed the overwhelming presence of the senses in particular particular touch and smell in every description. The novelist kind of Zelda's autobiography and it has all of this really pretty flowery language edge with complex metaphors but Scott had ended up a bridging. The hell out of it. In addition to using his influence to ensure the novel didn't get any kind of publicity. Zelda sold a little over a thousand copies of her book and earn a whole hundred twenty dollars. It was the only book she wrote that she would live to see published. This devastated her and caused her to give writing for a while and take painting which also didn't go well work was only shown once and critics didn't particularly really appreciate it curl. Mother didn't even care for her art and had much of it burned at the time. The New Yorker would reviews his artwork and say paintings by the almost mythical Zelda Fitzgerald with whatever emotional overtones or associations may remain from the so-called Jazz Age by nineteen thirty six Scott got would describe Zelda as violent and reclusive and various pieces of correspondence. He had her admitted to a hospital in North Carolina and that year. He wrote a letter to a friend. That said Zelda now claims to be in direct contact with Christ William the conqueror Mary Stuart Apollo and all the Stock Paraphernalia Insane asylum asylum jokes for what she is really suffered. There is never a sober night that I do not pay a stark tribute of an hour or two in the darkness in an odd way. Perhaps incredible incredible to you. She was always my child. It was not reciprocal as it often is in marriages I was her great reality often. The only liaison agent who could make the world tangible to her fast forty or later and Scottish struggling so much that he decides to degrade and humiliate himself by signing a huge deal with mgm in in Hollywood Ernest. Hemingway be damned Scott would maintain that this was when he started being unfaithful. Because Zelda was so far gone mentally he would always claim that he. You'd never cheated on her up until when he met Rosemary a woman who was vacationing in the area with her sister that same year he also had a prostitute named Lottie who like Hemingway also assured him that his penis size was just fine and what mattered. More was how when uses said Penis as opposed to the size of the thing. Lotti also said Ed Scott wasn't exactly shy about sharing white supremacist views with her. She recalls asking him if he'd ever gone to bed with a black girl before and then released the story in the the loss summer. A personal memoir F Scott Fitzgerald by Tony Batista. Blahdy said he gave me the damnedest. Look like I accused him of sleeping with his sister before he could answer. I told him that he had yes. Not once or twice but a dozen times. He lost his tongue that so I told him if it gave them any consolation. I was three quarters his color. When you got over that shock? He walked away like I had leprosy and told me to put on my clothes helix for a a bottle tore up the place slamming doors and drawers and smashed the last empty on the floor. Then he picked up the phone and called room service for a drink. He caught my eye and cancelled cancelled. It while I slipped on my skirt and blouse. He lit a cigarette with shaky hands. He took a couple of drags. And let's face dropping his hands like he was about to ball he. He mumbled something like this over.

"Could never be repaired. Some biographers think that it was all does infidelity that caused irreparable herbal rift. In the couple's relationship that summer but it's not even certain whether Zeldin Josiah never consummated their relationship. I personally think the source of the shift in the Fitzgerald's relationship came down to Zelda's willingness to leave Scott so quickly and deprive him of his material but whatever happened bend and however it happened. Nineteen twenty four was the year that Shit really started hitting the fan. I in September Zelda overdosed on sleeping pills Dell's hearn Scott never spoke of it in any way shape or form after it happened and it remains unclear as to whether it was intentional or not. Then Scott finished the great Gatsby Gatsby in October. Nineteen twenty four in an effort to unwind. The couple went on a Mediterranean vacation but were depressed and sick the whole time so they headed back to Paris and met up with the other members of the lost and greatest generation. Like Gertrude. Stein Alice veto close and the notorious Cock sock himself. Ernest timing way. Scott loved the Dushi misogynist author so of course is Alta. Couldn't stand him. She called Hemingway a bunch of choice names describing him as bogus that fairy with hair on his chest and phony as a rubber cheque. She was convinced that his whole tough-guy Schick was just that Ashtec in response to her stain. Hemingway being hemingway just look at his buddy Scott and said that's why you haven't finished your novel and you're just writing all Ashok for magazines and movies. She's constantly distracting. You and she has a bad attitude. You are an artist. You're just a hack a filthy dirty dirty work from home freelancing hack and your wife sucks and zolder like standing right there so she's like. Ut are obviously you're obviously obviously being right there for Scott. I know you dressed in drag in college and you were so convincing you were offered a job as a female impersonator at a Burlesque House. So when I I read this I just assumed Zelda was being pissy because she was jealous of how tight her husband was the cock sock author. Then I read this story. Sorry Hemingway wrote about in his memoir a moveable feast and the thing is. I can't help but wonder if the incident he describes in the book is wise. Zelda thought they they were in fact lovers according to Hemingway Scott went up to him one day and was like. Hey So zolotas said my dick is super super small and I need a second opinion. So what do you think Hemingway look. Some goes dude. You're fine have you ever been to the Lou. You're pretty comparable in size with the naked statues they have on display there and those are all supposed to be beautiful idealized bodies seriously. You're totally really fine. That had given Scott a little reassurance prior to this whole you're gay with Hemingway fight he was having Zelda so he confidently response to to his wife like okay A.. A man in drag does not automatically mean the man in question is gay. Educate yourself and be. I just don't WanNa sleep with you my dear watch. I'll get a hooker. Already of the condoms there right here in fashionable coat pocket and this exchange causes a massive fight to ensue ensue. And it just never really stops. Scott seemed to have a desire to punish BELDA. The couple began to resemble a version of George and Martha from. Who's WHO's afraid of Virginia Woolf and because they're the Fitzgerald's they would always turn the stories drama up to eleven they would say Zelda's boyfriend committed suicide in the end to add some dramatic flair when he was actually in the French resistance and engaged in much more noble endeavors than the Fitzgerald's ever were engaged in Zelda's jealousy over her husband's attention would continue and her emotions intensified as time went by her feelings became so extreme at one point? She threw herself down a flight of marble stairs because her husband was talking to the famous theater. Actress is Theodore Dunkin Issue Doro. who had been a big deal? When Scott was a kid did and was now? Old and flabby allegedly stroked Scott's hair while calling him her centurion so obviously not altogether. An overreaction overreaction on Zelda's part then wasn't the only weird shit she did during this time at least once. She put all her party guests jewelry in a pot and thought it was hilarious area scoring. It's SUP- another time. She asked her husband's friends to help her address for a bath and then she just dismissed them once the job alison. She had also throwing herself in front of her husband's car dared him to run her over but fortunately he did not acquiesce to her request. Oh and then then there was this time. She tossed a bunch of her clothes into her bathtub and let them all on fire because Scott at thirty years old was dallying around the seventeen year. Old Actress actress. Lois Moran when Zelda found out about what he was doing and confronted him. Scott said he actually said this. At least the girl did something with herself both something that required not only talent but effort meanwhile lowest his own mother and manager who clearly inspired Kris Jenner said the following following in an article that was printed in the magazine picture play. Lois had no other specific talent that I had observed but she was emotionally sensitive fairly fairly pretty and free from self consciousness and with those three qualities any girl can learn to be a successful actress. Scott then informed Soda while they were travelling by train that he invited Lois to come stay with them in their home back east once. She had some time to spare in her busy. Hollywood as usual. And this was terrible being timing because Zelda had just heard lowest say that F. Scott Fitzgerald was one of her all time favorite authors in a recent. It's an interview furious. Zelda chucked the Diamond Bracelet Scott had gifted to her six years prior right out of the window of the train it would be worth about twelve thousand dollars in two thousand nineteen. I don't think lois ended up visiting the Fitzgerald's after that and now I'm brief word from our sponsors. Aw Hey I'm andy if you don't know me.

That's Harrys Dot com code five thousand enjoy and now back to the show. Lowest would continue to deny the affair until her dying day. But many biographers Agra I think that she was almost certainly engaging an amorous congress with Scott to stop seeing each other shortly thereafter but Zelda's behavior continued to intensify now. Zelda had always been a physical risk taker when I was reading about her she came off like she was an adrenaline junkie. Just looking for fun. Not Unlike like people who get off on extreme sports gymnastics skydiving however her close friend eight a mic leash said that while Zelda had always been free spirited this this newly intensified behavior was different. She didn't actually seem to be enjoying herself like she wants. Had Zelda was pulling stunts purely to get attention ADA said Said and there was no mirth. No Fun this is what we do and now proceed to do it. These were the Fitzgerald evenings which we learned to avoid like the plague they. They seem intent. Upon living this learn life the ordinary evening wasn't enough and while Zelda was busy paving the way for the likes of Johnny Knoxville. A Scott was busy just being a creep like at a party for his friend. Ernest Hemingway in nineteen twenty. Six Scott was jealous that everyone was you know paying attention attention to the guy who the party was four so he proceeded to hurl ashtrays at the tables were other guests were sitting and he was so mean to his friend Gerald Murphy. Who was.

"Where he met Zelda. She caught his eye instantly. So he sauntered on over and tried chatting her up telling her I was named for my ancestor Francis. Scott key no big deal and CONSULTA being Zelda goes. Yeah it's not a big deal. My dance card is full. Can you move please. She said that because while it is true that F. Scott Fitzgerald was one of the most eligible young men in Saint Paul and was described as quite the catch. Zelda was one of if not the most eligible debutantes taunts in Alabama and she definitely knew it like dudes in the army would regularly do aerial tricks above our house in their attempts to interest in her one actually died trying to impress her. She was always surrounded by men and could have married anyone she wanted but she picked up Scott Fitzgerald and like I said he was described as being quite the catch. He was this like hot blonde with Gorgeous Blue Eyes and was compared to the Greek. God donnas on more than one occasion but he was also just a middle class. Army Guy Ryder with a foot fetish. Truly though he totally pitched a tent over lady feces and firmly believed the appendage was the sexual body part so he always made sure his own seas were covered up and never exposed in public even at the beach was known to modestly Berry his feet under the Sand Scott Somehow Convinced Zelda to let him have her phone number in they soon began dating he later recount that night to a friend saying I was immediately smitten and cut in on in her. She was the most beautiful girl I ever seen in my life and from that first moment I simply had to have her now. This wasn't Scott's first time chasing chasing down and debutante which is why it makes sense that he was so successful in his wing of Zelda feed had practice and that gave them a leg up on the competition one of his friends it actually given him a list of the most eligible bachelorettes. He knew of so Scott had already tried to lock down a young rich woman of society. Before that woman was never a king debutante from Chicago who sidebar had also been named after the Da Vinci Painting Genera Davinci. The young twenty year old Scott was totally and completely lutely sprung for Genera the woman who would inspire many of the characters he created in his books. Though I personally saw quite a bit of Zeldin those women myself after Paul it was Scott who once said I married. The heroine of my stories so did never in Scott had a whirlwind romance typical of young adults. Do you never mentioned being madly the in love with Scott and her diary only a month after meaning him. The couple exchanged love letters three or four times a week. Some of which have only been available to the public as of two thousand three so these are head over heels for each other when one summer Scott goes to visit her and her family at their Lake House. That's when something happened that drastically change their relationship. Yep Scott Faithfully almost obsessively kept a journal through much of his life and while he would typically write these huge grand sweeping entries it would be during this vacation with the king family that he'd rate just one single ominous sentence that may have actually been directed towards him by Jennifer's father. Four boys shouldn't marry rich girls after his stay at the lake. The letters between Scott and Geneva became less frequent than they nearly stopped altogether by the following year. Geneva was engaged to her dad's wealthy business associate. She wrote Scott a letter telling him to say I am. The happiest girl on Earth would be expressing it mildly. He replied saying from all I've heard of him he must be one of the best ever doesn't make you sigh with relief to be settled and think of all. The menu escaped marrying as ever Scott. I knew all the notebook was so damn original. So this will events seemed to set the tone for Scott's what's views and treatment of women while further contributing to his obsession with wealth and worsening has crippling insecurity. His failed relationship with Genera seemed to influences his work just as much as his middle class upbringing in a swanky neighborhood. Had if not more. So when another socialite with plenty of Benjamin's to spare took an interest interest in the jaded and cynical Scott a couple years later he wasn't going to let this one get away and Scott and Zelda ended up being a match made in Hell Zelda's biographer biographer. Nancy Milford tellingly. Wrote Scott had appealed to something in Zelda which no one before him had perceived a romantic sense of self-importance which was kindred kindred to his own Scott would visits to every day and tell her all about how awesome he was and how famous he was going to be and how great his writing was is an Zelda was like oh no way I write to hear look check out my diary and Scott reads it and goes this. This is actually really good. He thought it was so good. In fact he straight up. Almost word-for-word plagiarized seldom styrene his book. This side of Paradise. I'm not joking working except big S.. SPEECH AMRI BLAME GIBBS near the very end of the book. He was so shameless about it. Love Hug can you even imagine I mean. It's a good thing Zeldin elden right true crime articles or he probably would've started a podcast. That seriously was really amazing writer. She's even been compared to Emily Dickinson. And the editor. The American Spectator magazine considered publishing her diary under the title. The diary of Popular Girl Scout showed it to him. But that didn't work out of course because I naturally Scott and Zelda's diaries to plagiarize off of Scott would later describe this period of his life in his journal as sexually reckless. He didn't get into any further details and that he insulted were kicked out of a hotel one night so I can only imagine things had gotten pretty. The two got engaged a little under a year later. Liter when Scott proposed by sending Zelda has mother's wedding ring but his beautiful bride B's Episcopal. Ian Family was not feeling the love for her fiance sons. He was a raging alcoholic and even worse he was a Catholic but Zelda stuck by him and Scott was like. Oh my God. You're so sweet. To stand by me despite the disapproval of your family. You don't care that I'm broke and an artist. You really do. Just love me for me and salted goes. Yeah for sure. But I'm not marrying you until you. Publish Paradise Book wrote and Scott Goes. Are you serious and Zelda goes. Yeah I'm accustomed to a particular lifestyle and besides besides a large portion of that book is from my diary anyway and I'm locking up your engagement ring. Also no more sex. She even went as far as two totally break off if the engagement once telling him. I can't be shut away from the trees and flowers cooped up in a little flat waiting for you. You'd hate me a narrow atmosphere I'd make you hate me and Scott went. Damn those are some good lines and promptly wrote them into the book so Scott wraps it all up sends it over to his editor and publisher and after some time he hears his book is indeed going to be published. So what does he do. He writes a letter to his editor telling him shitting to be hurried. The hell along because as he I said I have so many things dependent on its success including of course a girl. This side of Paradise was published on March Twenty Six nineteen twenty eight was fantastically successful so as planned Scotland's Aldo got married on April third nineteen twenty and proceeded to drunkenly unle wreak havoc on New York City. I know like to take a moment before I related Hannigan to note that Scott and Zelda were a part of the lost and greatest generations rations. This is significant because they were alive during a monumental an unprecedented time in history they had come of age during World War One as in Love Love First World War. This cost many young people at the time to experience. What really sounded like existential crisis? In my opinion after through the war they had trouble moving four and life with any sense of direction that generation had seen some shed so these two disenchanted lovebirds started out their intermarriage with a ton of money fame and jaded cynicism. They were delighted by the fact that they were rich. Celebrities became straight up hedonist. Scotland write short stories for the Saturday evening. Post at what was twenty five thousand dollars a pop. The nineteen twenty s and this was largely due to Zelda's continued outrageous behavior that gave him endless writing material to fund their posh lifestyle like they once got.
