Book Notes: "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, and Other Stories" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, and Other StoriesThe Diamond as Big as the Ritz, and Other Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Fitzgerald's ability to present a theme based on stories that are almost pedestrian constantly amazes me. Each story leaves me to ponder the meaning of the mundane and his ability to moralise, empathise, sympathise and then switch to humour and back again makes me wonder how much was packed into his relatively short life. Certainly makes me a fan of the short story.
