Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald is known as one of the most gifted writers of the Roaring Twenties. His first novels, This Side of Paradise (1920) and The Beautiful and the Damned (1921), lyrically described the pleasure-seeking lifestyle of his generation, a lifestyle he actively participated in. 
 
Contemporary readers felt Fitzgerald’s stories glorified the moral decline of the times because his glittering characters were cynical and irresponsible and spent their time turning life into one endless party. Later readers sensed a deep moral theme pervading Fitzgerald’s works, for in his full exploration of the reckless lifestyle, Fitzgerald found it wanting and empty. 
 
Fitzgerald’s greatest novel was The Great Gatsby (1925), a story about a wealthy American bootlegger in the 1920s. This was followed by Tender Is the Night (1934), a story about the decline of glamorous Americans in Europe. By 1934, Fitzgerald’s lifestyle had caught up with him. His wife Zelda became mentally ill, then he collapsed physically and spiritually. Fitzgerald poignantly described this tragic sojourn in The Crack-Up (1936).
 
Fitzgerald began writing The Last Tycoon (1941), a novel about Hollywood life, but died before completing it. His literary talent was finally recognized after his death.
