About Zelda Fitzgerald

See more books from this Author
American writer Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald is known as much for her volatile marriage to novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald as she is for her own published work, Save Me the Waltz. Married to Fitzgerald at a young age, Zelda was an icon of the Jazz age, personifying the energy and excess of the Roaring Twenties. As expatriates in Europe, the Fitzgeralds were members of the Lost Generation, socializing with such literary celebrities as Ernest Hemingway and T. S. Eliot. Overshadowed for much of her marriage by her husband's success, Zelda sought to define her own identity through a variety of artistic endeavours including writing, dance, and art. The strain of her turbulent marriage contributed to her admittance to a sanatorium in 1930, at which time she was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Zelda spent the rest of her life in and out of institutions, and finally died tragically in a fire in 1948.
