Book Notes: "Flappers and Philosophers" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Flappers and PhilosophersFlappers and Philosophers by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am still amazed at the intense life experience at such a young age. Even though the themes are often about "coming-of-age", FSF's depth of maturity and comprehension of the deeper side of social relations is evident in each short story. "Benediction" was particularly haunting and seems to pre-empt Hemingway's "iceberg" principle. Certainly worth a read and I must say I am now a convert to the short story...
